Bridgewater Prep Choir take the honours at M.A.P.A.S. Choral & Vocal Festival

22nd March 2019

~ A jubilant Bridgewater Prep Choir came away from this year’s M.A.P.A.S. Choral & Vocal Festival in joyous mood, after winning the Junior Schools category with Honours.~

The annual singing event organised by M.A.P.A.S. (Salford Music and Performing Arts Service), is a celebration of all things vocal and provides an opportunity for choirs, soloists and groups from across the region to showcase their talents before a panel of professional adjudicators.

Following their glorious performance of ‘Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho’ and ‘Electricity’ from Billy Elliot The Musical, the Bridgewater Prep choir was awarded the top prize and has subsequently been invited to perform at Salford’s ‘Big Sing 2019’ event in June.

Said Headmistress, Mrs Judy Nairn: “Music is hugely important to a school and its benefits for the school community as a whole cannot be underestimated. Here at Bridgewater, our highly experienced teaching and peripatetic team are committed to bringing undiscovered potential out into the light and this award is testament to that. Our Prep Choir gives younger pupils a wonderful opportunity to participate in a team and experience a real sense of belonging, and we could not be more proud of what they have achieved.”
