GIA "Let It Shine" Final

On 26th May, GIA held the finals of our “Let it Shine” competition and were delighted to choose four winners out of the 12 finalists. Huge thanks to Mrs Saracino who listened to over 400 auditions before reaching that point! She has to learn the accompaniment for all the songs too - and a very wide variety of styles from modern pop to classic musicals as well as soloists and groups! The four final winners were all soloists: Sophie Bright (Year 8); Daniel Ewers (Year 5); Cerys Verrier (Year 7) and Paige Thomas (Year 7), but all the finalists did an amazing job - singing in front of the whole school is a huge challenge in itself!
