School choirs in fine voice

THE Murwillumbah Civic Centre was yesterday alive with the sound of music.

The voices of hundreds of school children, from choirs all across the Tweed Shire, were competing in the Murwillumbah Festival of Performing Arts' Primary Schools' Day.

Festival president Arthur Holmes said the day was full of excitement.

“Again I would like to say how lovely it is with school days to have so many parents and friends supporting the kids and encouraging them,” Mr Holmes said.

“Now we're moving into the instrumental section, and on Wednesday night we'll have the piano and instrumental championships.
