HARMONIOUS singing filled a packed Kings Theatre as infants took to the stage.
Around 500 children from schools across Portsmouth all came together to put on a performance at the theatre in Albert Road, Southsea.
Infant Voices was a week-long event that gives children in Year 2 the chance to sing together and perform on stage.
It was organised by the Infant Voices Committee.
Chairwoman Ann Larcombe said: ‘This is for the children to stand up on stage and perform, and we hope that stays with them for the rest of their lives as it’s a wonderful opportunity.
‘In a choir children get the chance to sing together and be a part of a team.
‘It helps with confidence building and their self-esteem.’
The theatre was packed out with proud parents, including Wendy Rickson, whose daughter Lucy goes to Northern Parade Infants School.
Mrs Rickson, 38, of Elmwood Road, Hilsea, said: ‘I really enjoyed the show.
‘Lucy had been practising for weeks and singing in the bath and in her bedroom. It was good to see her on stage.’
