The Hastings Primary Schools’ Choir Committee is proud to present its tenth Annual Concert.

A decade of progress has brought the Choir to a peak in quality of performance.

This high quality reflects the enthusiasm and drive of the Choir’s Conductor, Miss Kathleen Coles, who has given unstintingly of her time, patience, musical and organising ability in producing this concert.

The Choir consists of 300 members, of whom 116 are new members, 25 are third year, and 15 are fourth year members. Four children have been in the choir for five years. Moreover, this year we are pleased to have Fernhill School associated with us for the first time. We hope they will be regular members in future years.

With the opening of the Intermediate School next year, the future of the Primary Schools’ Choir is uncertain, but it is to be hoped that the excellent cultural opportunities which it affords for children will not be entirely lost.

The Choir Committee is grateful for the support of the Associate Members who through their contributions have again made it possible to stage an Annual Concert. We thank them sincerely for their continued interest and public spirit.

We hope that the children who are members of the Choir will continue to show keen interest in singing and music generally as they go through life, and that that interest will have a profound effect on the cultural life of Hastings.
