SCHOOLCHILDREN have been hitting the high notes in Barrow.
Pupils from six primary schools wowed an audience at The Forum, last night in the second of two Furness Voices performances.
Primary schools have collaborated with Cumbria Music Service, which is part of Cumbria Music Hub, to host the events.
The shows were suggested by Paul Fussell, the headteacher of Ormsgill Primary, and the project is led by Emma Richardson, head of music at Dowdales School.
Last night Yarlside Primary entertained the crowd with the Weather Medley, with favourites such as Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head. Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School also impressed with Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
There were more fine voices on show with South Walney Juniors singing Let It Be by The Beatles, Greengate Juniors performing Cups (When I’m Gone) and Cambridge Primary singing When You’re Smiling.
The children of Ormsgill Primary performed for a second time with their rendition of Electricity from Billy Elliot. All the children performed music from Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Ahead of the show, Simon Yeo, manager of Cumbria Music Service, said: “Last week was a great success and the children and teachers were buzzing.”
Jacob Johnson, seven, and Bethany Johnson, 11, of Yarlside Primary, could not wait to perform.
Jacob said: “I’m very excited, but nervous as lots of people are watching. We are all proud to represent school.”
Bethany said: “It makes me happy to sing with everyone from school.”
Sacred Heart’s Zofia Zebryk, seven, said: “I feel happy when I sing. We are very excited.”
Ormsgill’s Abbie Bower, 10, said: “Furness Voices is an amazing experience.”
