The choir travelled to the annual Burnley Music Festival to sing in the Thomas Witham Auditorium on Friday March 10th 2017.
QEGS opened the festival with a rousing unaccompanied traditional South African folk song Sin Nje Nje sung in the Zulu language, followed by Bob Chilcott’s Can You Hear Me? - a simple and beautiful setting describing the wonder of a world seen through the eyes of a deaf child. In the chorus, the choir signed the words they sang, resulting in a very moving performance.
The feedback from the adjudicator was positive and the choir look forward to performing at more local events this year.
