1st July 2017
On Saturday 1st July members of the Eastlea Singing Club took part in a fantastic concert at the Turbine Hall, Castlegate Newcastle. The performance involved the Newcastle Choral Society and two other local schools.
There was a 'naval' theme to the concert with a range of music performed - but the highlight was 'AHOY!' which involved all the singers performing sea shanties and famous tunes together with the appropriate actions!!
Alexander l'Estrange, the composer of 'Ahoy!' was there with his band to accompany the singers and he was great fun. He led a workshop for the children to get them into the spirit of the occasion and we had a great time at this and the concert event on Saturday.
The audience was full for the performance on Saturday evening and we received lots of very positive comments about how well the children had done from parents, governors and members of the public - I was very proud of them all!!
