Davidson’s Mains Primary School Choir won the Edinburgh Schools Glee competition held in the Assembly Rooms on Thursday 26th May. The 33 strong choir made up of primaries six and seven pupils won their heat a month previously and went on to take the glitzy 3 foot high trophy against steep competition from 5 other school finalists.
The children sang Love Runs Out by 1 Republic and Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson with superb timing and poise. They were described as ‘a well-oiled machine’ by the judges in the heats, showing individual flair and still singing together as a unified choir. Grace Reid the solist, sang to what was described as ‘professional standard- rapping along to Uptown Funk. The children (and their parents) were overwhelmed with their success and very excited. Their choir leader, class teacher, Helen Bassett, was delighted with their success, especially as most of the sixes and sevens were at residential camp last week and rehearsal time was tight.
Feedback from the organisers to …
Many congratulations to you and the Davidson Mains choir for becoming our 2016 Edinburgh Primary School Show Choir Champions!
What a fantastic night – I think it may be some time before everyone comes back down to earth again. I can imagine there wasn’t much sleep had last night J
We thought that all of the choirs performed even better in the final than they did in the heats and the Davidson Mains choir really stepped things up last night – you are well deserved winners! I wasn’t there when the scores were added up and didn’t hear the judges’ decision so I couldn’t wait to hear the results. I was delighted when Ali opened the envelope and announced that the winners were Davidson’s Mains. The choir are real credit to you and the school. Not only did they bring all the elements of Glee together, singing, dancing and storytelling, they were also very supportive of all the other choirs and were great audience members.
Many congratulations once again from everyone at Frisson
