Upper Beeding Primary has announced that its vocal group was named ‘Choir of the Year’ at the Arun Young Musicians Festival.

The winners were announced on Sunday after a very competitive final which was held at the Alexandra Theatre in Bognar Regis along with other talented musicians from across West Sussex.

Nerves were flying high, including for their conductor, Mrs Corrine Wellby who is the music leader at the school.

Following their performance of Three American Chants and ‘Naughty’ from Matilda, the children were given a rousing applause from the audience.

The school is soon to be featured in the Sing Up magazine – Sing Up is a national singing resource for both primary and secondary schools.

Initially set up following the Government’s music manifesto back in 2007, Sing Up is going from strength to strength. Upper Beeding Primary is a Platinum Sing Up school and subsequently the organisation is interested in various singing activities we participate in and the locality all boys’ vocal group which started in September.
