A choir from a Calne school hit the high note when they won a major cup in the Swindon Music Festival. Pupils from St Margaret�s Preparatory School, Calne, won the Junior Choirs aged 11 and under category and carried off the A J May Trophy.
The choir, made up of children from Year 5 and 6 sang two contrasting songs � �I Believe In Springtime� by John Rutter with solos from Holly and Hermione and �42nd Street�.

Music Teacher Hilary Gibbin said: �The competition was very fierce, but we were delighted to win with an overall score of 89 marks, a Distinction. It was lovely to see the children enjoy themselves so much.�

Swindon Music Festival has been running since 1909 and has grown into a major annual event. Among previous entrants was celebrated jazz player Jamie Cullum, who competed in the piano solo and piano duet classes in 1989 and 1989.
