Sunbury students’ spectacular musical effort

Sunbury Primary School pupils are warming up their vocal chords for the state’s biggest school concert.

The group of about 20 songsters will form part of a 1200-child choir that takes to the stage at this year’s State Schools Spectacular.

Teacher Charles Schumann says the Sunbury kids, from grades 4-6, are getting plenty of practice ahead of the September 12 event. ‘

‘They’ve been rehearsing once a week and have already done one full rehearsal at the [Melbourne] town hall, with another one in a few weeks’ time,’’ he says.

Students will also learn choreography to accompany their singing, which range from Pharrell Williams’ Happy to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off.

Goonawarra Primary School will also be part of the mass choir.

The 20th State Schools Spectacular is at Hisense Arena on September 12. For tickets and more details, visit
