Musical Success at Taunton Festival of the Arts
King’s Hall School have celebrated another successful year at the Taunton Festival of the Arts, with all entrants receiving fantastic results and feedback from the jury.
Twenty-two children took part in solo/small group classes, with a further 30 involved in choirs. In the build up to the event, Taunton Children’s Orchestra also enjoyed weekly rehearsals at the school.
King’s Hall children gained a show-stopping twelve first places, five second places and one third, as well as receiving uniformly high mark across the board: of the 70 or so entrants, 23 were awarded distinctions, with a further 38 securing commended.
The Taunton Children’s Orchestra, of which seven King’s Hall pupils are members, received a distinction and secured the Talbot Cup.
In the 12 and Under Choir category, Miss Tustian’s lunchtime Rainforest Choir placed third with a commended mark, and the Senior Choir came first with a distinction, as well as receiving the Priscilla Hodgson Shield.
Overall, a tremendous fortnight of music, of which all participants should be justifiably proud of their achievements. Huge congratulations to the following pupils for their individual success:
