Clip of ‘Catch a Falling Star’
Dunoon Primary School Choir performed their version of ‘Juke Box’ last night April 26th to a packed audience in our school hall. Mrs Hamlet our superb dedicated music teacher had prepared a fantastic, modern programme for our pupils to sing aided by Mrs M Peek and Mrs A Macdonald.
The choir sang their hearts out to tunes from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000 eras! Songs like ‘Catch a Falling Star, I’m A Believer, Thank You for the Music and Bring Me Sunshine were popular with the community in the afternoon show. MacAulay and Andrew performed a tremendous routine to Bring Me Sunshine, kitted out with top hats and canes to a very excited and appreciative audience. The P7 girls were dressed in very colourful and birling skirts and neck ties which added to the ambience of the afternoon/evening performances. They then danced to the tune of ‘Rock Around the Clock’ and ‘Lets Go to the Hop’. The soloists were nothing short of amazing! Rowan and Connor sang ‘Count on Me’ and had the audience bopping around and Piper left not a dry eye in the house with her rendition of ‘Somewhere Only We Know!’. Holly sang sweetly and passionately ‘My Heart Will Go On!’
The reactions from the children were that they loved it, it was so good and what a brilliant night! The parents spoke passionately about the whole performance, and it was evident at the end of the evening that the revival of the jukebox era had been a resounding success!
The evening of 13th December, Dunoon Primary School Choir, directed by Mrs Heather Hamlet our wonderful Music teacher performed ‘One Bright Star’. The narrators spoke clearly as they told the Christmas story linked with beautiful songs. The audience were enthralled by the amazing solo singers and the last song ‘Light A Candle’ left everyone in no doubt Christmas is truly on its way! The children’s tealights reflected on their faces and illuminated the beautiful St John’s church.
Quotes from the audience on the evening were that of ” A sweet, sweet sound in a beautiful setting”,”The choir were brilliant tonight”, and “Another great performance from the choir”. As everyone left the church the snow started to fall, making a suitable ending to a perfect evening!
Thank you to everyone who has supported the choir in their numerous festive performances over the season!
Dunoon Primary School’s choir entertained local senior citizens at Struan Lodge recently. This was a real treat for the children from Primary 5. They entertained and followed the programme of Scottish songs perfectly, leaving the audience in awe of their terrific voices! The residents of Struan Lodge thanked the choir for coming and praised them for their beautiful singing! Well done P5 choir members!
The Choir also hosted a superb Daffodil Tea entitled ‘Be Our Guest’. The afternoon show was attended by members from various senior citizen groups within our local community which has now become an annual event. The children began the programme with a medley of Scottish songs including old favourites like ‘Red Yoyo’, ‘Skyscraper Wean’ and ‘Loch Lomond’. The solo singers sang sweetly and clearly wowing the audience at both the afternoon and evening tea, much to the pleasure of the very proud parents! This year there was an added bonus of highland dancing, piping and fiddle playing. The walls were adorned with the pupils’ work with displays depicting songs from the programme. The hall had a packed audience in the evening and the crowd were enthralled by each song, some even joined in! This year’s Daffodil Tea had a special twist to celebrate the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, so after the interval the pupils arrived on the stage in their sports gear. The second half songs were ‘Race to the End’ and a couple of contemporary songs which were suitably adapted by our music producer Mrs Hamlet, who has worked diligently to produce some amazing new songs for our pupils. Well done and a huge thank you to each and everyone who helped with the choir, and for their tireless work behind the scenes. Most of all a huge well done to the stars of the show, the children themselves!
