WHEN children in her choir perform at their best, their eyes sparkle and their parents are amazed at their children's achievement, Sutherland Shire Children's Choir director Natalie Woodcock said.

"Watching them sing with such joy, camaraderie and exhilaration never ceases to fill me with happiness," she said.

"Choristers experience significant growth in confidence due to the thrill of performing.

"One of my greatest passions is conducting this children's choir."

The choir will show off its singing abilities on Saturday at Engadine Community Centre auditorium, where they will be accompanied by a professional band.

The concert in which they will appear also features a performance by Drum 4 Fun Drum Troupe, which has been influenced by African rhythms.

The troupe will also perform a combined finale with the choir.
