VISITING the Sydney Opera House is exciting enough but singing on stage is another level of experience entirely.
A successful audition last year meant the opportunity of a life-time for the Korora Public School choir.
Early in the week, 36 students travelled to Sydney to take part in the NSW Choral Festival which featured a 700-strong choir, comprised of students from public schools around the state.
Under the watchful eye of their teacher Kaye Campbell, the children have been practicing for months, singing at every opportunity, even their lunchtimes, to be pitch-perfect on the night.
Mrs Campbell said to help get the choir to Sydney, the support of local businesses was enlisted and “even in these tough economic times they didn’t let the kids down”.
“It’s heartening to know that when we needed support we were able to approach local businesses that were keen to see the children have the experience of going to the Opera House to perform,” Mrs Campbell said.
“I’m very proud of them and it was a privilege to have been able to travel with them for this memorable experience.”
