Moray Primary School choir awarded distinction in Music Festival

Greenwards Primary School Choir competed in the Inverness Music Festival on 15 March 2024, receiving distinction and taking home the trophy.

The event is a local showcase opportunity for all amateur performers, sharing a love of music and creative arts. The festival includes a range of performances from speech and debating to groups/ensembles and traditional music.

In the P4-7 class category, Greenwards Primary School choir received 87 points, a distinction, which resulted in joint second place. They then competed in the action song class where they achieved 89 points, another distinction, and were awarded the trophy. 

The choir is made up of 32 pupils who rehearse every Monday after school.

Greenwards Primary School teacher, Kirstin Mustard, who leads the choir and accompanied them to the festival said: “I’m so proud of all the children. They love being part of the choir and were so excited to take part in the festival. I’m really glad we had the opportunity to travel through to Inverness to compete and coming away with two distinctions and a trophy made all their hard work worth it.”

Chair of Moray Council’s Education, Communities and Leisure Services Committee, Cllr Kathleen Robertson, said: “It’s great to see Moray’s children and young people experiencing first-hand the joy that music brings. Congratulations to the Greenwards Primary School choir, this is a fantastic achievement and you should all be very proud.”
