Voices shake off the weather at Kidsing

COOLUM State School hosted more than 500 choristers from 10 Sunshine Coast schools last Friday.

Despite the lack of sunshine outside, the inside of the school hall was filled with warmth, as bright and happy massed voices of the students sang together to signal the start of Kidsing, a biennial Education Queensland festival to celebrate and showcase state school choirs.

Coolum State School's Junior Voices took to the stage first, followed by Yandina State School and then Coolum's Senior Voices. Other schools included Pacific Paradise, Noosaville, Buderim Mountain, Woombye, Burnside, Meriden State College, Chancellor State College and Mountain Creek.

Coolum State School music teacher Roz Mackay said the festival was a spectacular showcase of primary school choral singing.

"It is amazing what such tiny voices are capable of," she said.

"It was a pleasure for Coolum State School to be able to host such a wonderful celebration, and plans are already being made to return for similar events in 2015."
