CRANBORNE AIMS FOR CONFERENCE MUSICAL GLORY
Cranborne’s musical journey takes them to the Eastern Highlands tomorrow (Saturday) as they meet with the best main choirs in the conference for the Zimbabwe East Annual Conference Choral music festivals at St Peters Mutare.
The choir, who finished fourth at the district musicals, will be aiming to put the hard work to great use on the conference stage against some of the more illustrious choirs on show.
The choir quickly went back to work on Monday after the district festivals, taking stock of the results and areas of improvement from Saturday’s performance with Southerton chorister Ralph Mukuchura coming in to assist to drum the choir.
The time of reckoning has indeed come with the choir set to leave at 4am tomorrow for a showcase they aim to impress in front of multitudes of music enthusiasts.
Cranborne will be one of five circuits representing Harare East District at the festivals alongside Ruwa, DomboraMwari, Waterfalls and Chisipite.
The final musical session will be held tonight ahead of the morning departure with at least 35 choristers expected.
Cranborne’s choir of 27 choristers at the weekend was probably the smallest choir in Cranborne’s musical history to stage at a festival, beating the 30 that participated in 2011 and went on to win the festivals then.
After all is said and done, the huge work and sacrifice has been put and all that is left is for Cranborne to put all the work into an outstanding performance in Mutare.
