This year’s theme was ‘Music from around the World’, so each school sent a choir and performed two songs to a packed audience.

Nearly 400 parents and family members filled the college, watching the children perform.

At the start and end of the show, sponsored by Chatteris Rotary Club, all of the choirs joined together to perform en masse.

The first item of the show was accompanied by Cromwell student, Charley Gardener, who performed on piano without any sheet music.

A spokesman said: “Cromwell Rock band gave a rousing rendition of Bohemian Like You.

“Cromwell student, Asher Hayes, sang solo with her own composition of What The World Needs, accompanied by her music tutors.

“Thanks must go to Cromwell’s director of music, Mrs Gayna O’Rourke, for the hard work she has put in over many months to make the whole evening a success.”
