Lea Valley Junior School Choir Competition - 2017
Congratulations to Roselands Primary School in Hoddesdon who were the winners of the third annual Lea Valley Junior School Choir competition organized by Amwell Rotary Club. As well as individual winners medals for all of the choir members, they also received £200.00 for their school and get to keep the trophy for the next 12 months.
Based on their submitted recordings, five finalists from the 12 schools who entered were chosen by the judges. These were Downfield Primary from Cheshunt, Stapleford Primary School, Abel Smith School from Hertford, Millbrook Primary from Cheshunt and Roselands Primary from Hoddesdon. They each sang two songs live at The Spotlight, formerly Broxbourne Civic Hall, on Wednesday 24th May. During the evening other local young people with musical talent also entertained the audience.
The judges for the competition were Derek Harrison, Musical Director for Hertford Choral, Deanne Tucker, Head of Music at John Warner School and Paul Burrell, formerly Head of Music at Presdales School.
Huge thanks to everyone who took part and to everyone who came along and supported the choirs at the finals concert.
