Eleanor competed in a local music festival yesterday and did extremely well. Her first class was Girls and Boy Soprano Solo, 14 years and under. She had to sing a set song, A Smuggler's Song by Christopher le Fleming in key E minor, and she came first and won a cup to bring home for the year. We just need to get her name engraved on it now.
The second class she took part in was Junior Show class, 18 years and under. For this she had to sing a song from a show or musical, her own choice with a time limit of 5 minutes. Eleanor chose to sing Feed the Birds from Mary Poppins by Sherman & Sherman and came second.
We're really proud of her, she's got such a lovely voice even though I do say it myself, and I love to listen to her sing, though it's extremely nerve wracking watching her just in case she goes wrong, though she never has yet. She got some lovely complimentary comments from the adjudicator too.
This is the fourth year that Eleanor has competed at this festival and we see some familiar faces each year, but there were a few new faces there this year which is always good to see. I'm sure that Eleanor will be there again next year, she enjoys her singing so much.
