Prior Park was alive with the sound of music at its recent concert which raised funds for survivors of the Philippines disaster.
Every year, budding musicians at Prior Park Preparatory School in Cricklade, Wiltshire, put on a stunning concert in honour of St Cecilia.
That tradition continued this year but a special focus was made on the recent typhoon which has devastated part of the Philippines.
It was decided that all donations at the concert would go towards the Disasters Emergency Committee which is raising funds for survivors of the typhoon.
More than £400 was raised in total.
For the concert itself, more than a hundred pupils at the Catholic school stood up courageously in front of a large audience and displayed some fine musical talent.
The orchestral pieces were played determinedly, the choirs sang with real passion and the individual performances were breathtaking. Soloists included saxophonists, flutists and singers. The Year 5 ukulele group also put on an enthusiastic performance.
Headteacher Mark Pearce said: “It was a simply wonderful evening and we are thrilled that so many parents, friends and families turned out to support the children.
“The children gave such passionate performances and really demonstrated the breadth of talent here at Prior Park.
“It was a very easy decision to make to raise funds for the Philippines disaster. The devastation caused is heart breaking, particularly with the number of young children involved.
“So we were delighted with the amount raised and thank our parents and friends of the school for their generosity.”
