Schools Spec always has a bunch of standout performances, in addition of course to my own daughters, and to your own children should they be participants.
But this year there was Meriana Gyory, who we’ve seen at a couple of other schools events. I don’t think there are many people who could make charming indie-pop comic singer-songwriting work in a room that big, even with the help of puppets, but she had us eating out of the palm of her hand. I’ll be surprised if she isn’t on Spicks and Specks within twelve months.
The boy’s ensemble deserves a mention too. They were getting Beatlemania-level screams from the girls in the choir.
While I’m on comic songwriting, Peter is crediting me for one of the gags in his song inspired by this week’s events, so linking to it would be an act of shameless self-promotion, if I could remember making it.
