A sea of white blouses and shirts filled the stage at Staples High School last week as more than 300 fourth- and fifth-graders performed together in the annual Spring Townwide Choral Festival.

The mostly 9- and 10-year-olds sing in choruses at their respective schools and put their voices together for the first time in public for the choral performance.

The show included performances by select vocal groups from Coleytown and Bedford middle schools and by the Staples Orphenians.
