‘At the Boite concert, singing was the obvious highlight. Every song had a great rhythm and beat, created by a small team of drummers and other percussionists playing on the stage with us. Even now,months later, I can remember all the words to the catchy songs.’- Annabelle, Student, Scots School Albury, Windrush.
