Our Junior Choir performed at the Stella Maris Hall in the Torres de Manantiales hotel on October 2nd, 2008. The event, which received a lot of praise, has been held for the past ten years.
This year, nine schools from Buenos Aires took part. Each choir sang several songs.
Tomás Merello, the St. Andrew’s Scots School Junior Choir director, cued his singers into song as they began with Billy Joel’s "Uptown Girl”, followed by “Mucho Más Fuerte Sin Tu Amor” and “Happy Together”.
The last song was an invigorating rendition of “Vois Sur Ton Chemin”. It was beautifully sung and the audience responded with cheering and applause.
The last group to perform was the host school’s choir “Northern Hills”. To end the Festival everyone joined in singing “Todo Se Puede Lograr”.
The children then went back to the hotel where they enjoyed a celebration with the students from the other eight schools.
It was a wonderful experience that they will cherish for years.
Congratulations to all on their hard work and effort throughout the year!!!
