Audio Recording of Ping Ping Piang Piang Chuo Sin Nuo Lyric Reading

During the 2 recent choir practices on 28 and 29 Nov, Ms Lee has already taught the SYF 2014 set piece.
For those of you who missed the practices, please learn the song from your friend before the next practices on 27 and 30 Dec. Ms Lee will also teach the new song again.

Please also prepare the following 2 songs for audition:
1) Sing a Song of Sixpence
2) Ping Ping Piang Piang Chua Sin Nuo

To help you in your revision at home, I've attached an audio file on the lyrics of song (2) below:
