Festival of Voices

On Friday 17th June Garsington's school choir joined pupils from Botley, Charlton, Checkendon, Ewelme, Harwell, North Hinksey, Our Lady's an
d Watlington primary schools to perform in the 33rd Oxfordshire Festival of Voices at Dorchester Abbey.

The children sang wonderfully a programme of 17 songs including old favourites such as Bare necessities, Food, glorious food and My favourite things, some traditional pieces from Brazil and South Africa, all culminating with the stirring World in union that didn't leave a dry eye in the house!

Well done to all those who took part, and thank you to all the parents and staff (especially Mrs Bruce) who made the event possible.

Oxfordshire's Festival of Voices has grown from just two concerts in Oxford Town Hall in 1984 to an annual week of five performances at the amazingly beautiful abbey at Dorchester. The Festival has contributed over £52,000 to the charity Save the Children.
