Autumn merged into winter on Tuesday as pupils from six first schools took their audience on a journey into Christmas.

 

The 180 children from schools across Windsor and Eton had been taking part in a singing project that will last a year, organised by St George's School and the Windsor Festival.

The idea began with Stephen Burrows, director of music at St George's School and Martin Denny, director of the festival.  David Manners, lay clerk at St George's chapel has been visiting the schools each week putting the children through their paces. Choristers from St George's Chapel joined them later to sing carols.

The first concert took place at Windsor Parish Church with songs relating to harvest festivals and autumn leading into Christmas fare as the afternoon wore on.

The children will get their next chance to shine at the Windsor Spring Festival in March. They were from Hilltop, Royal School, Clewer Green, Queen Anne's, St Edward's and Eton Porny.
