Wednesday, 1 May is internationally recognised as Workers’ Day but for the Cranborne youth choir, it shall be a day in mission in pursuit of musical glory.

All they have to do tomorrow is present a flawless musical performance on the 2019 set piece song titled Count Your Blessings and the reward is the honour of regaining the Harare East District Youth musical crown in a festival slated for Chisipiti Circuit.

It is quite a huge ask for a circuit that finished third last term given the level of competition now on display but it is a task achievable as evidenced by past performances in recent memory.

Chisipiti has been a good hunting ground for Cranborne over the years with organisational and main church choir excelling on those plains and the youth will be itching to replicate such successes.

The choir has been hard at work preparing this 95 bar English classic with a much exhaustive session expected tonight as they round up preparations for the big day.

The drama team also have been hard at work putting final pieces to their play on gender based violence which also will be adjudicated upon concurrently with the musicals.

With 19 circuits all with a huge shout at the crown, it will take presence of mind, a moment of brilliance and a touch of grace for the perennial musical powerhouse to bring some cheer to the multitudes of Cranborners who will be following these festivals with keen interest.

A win for Cranborne will ensure passage to the conference festivals scheduled for June.

Indeed as Reverend Dr Gift Machinga aptly says, Cranborne tomorrow will be in the hands of the young souls.

The time is indeed nigh.
