The Scottish Primary School Glee Challenge 2023 - Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Final - May 25th
Going to a Glee Challenge event is a bit like going to a concert with great bands of which one of them is your favourite and for which tickets are hard to come by. These are no ordinary children’s events and it was obvious the minute the introductory music started.
Children all 280 of them and their teachers sang, danced, cheered, screamed and took to their feet while the full house of carers/parents and supporters in the balcony of this magnificent venue looked down in amazement at the joy on display below. And the show hadn’t even started.
Nine choirs (see inset) from across Edinburgh and Lothians primary schools took to the stage. To get to the final they had qualified via their sectional heats and having had to learn a new set song (all choirs sing a set song and one of their own choosing) they came ready to sing their hearts out and perform at their best.
