Songs For Time Travellers


On Thursday 7th May, pupils from Abernyte Primary travelled to Perth Concert Hall to take part in the annual Show-In-A-Day event.  Following on from last year’s successful performance of “The Sound of Music”, schools were invited this year to take part in a performance which charted the development of Western music throughout history.


Pupils and staff dressed the part, wearing costumes based on outfits from the 1960’s.

After a day of song rehearsals, a short performance was put on, which featured the songs:

“The Complete History Of Western Music”
“Chattanooga Choo Choo”
“Rock Around The Clock”
“At The Hop”
“Let It Be”
“Wake Me Up”
Layla (P5) reports:
“Hundreds of primary school children spent the day at Perth concert hall for Day of Song. The theme this year was Songs for Time Travellers. Each school had chosen a different decade and both children and teachers were dressed in the fashion of those times. They filled the auditorium and two children from each school were chosen to go on stage to stand on stage together. Everyone sang the various songs from the past which they have been busy learning over the past few weeks which included among many Let it be by the Beatles. An adult orchestra accompanied them and a great time was had by all.”
