On Tuesday 19th December, the school choir took part in BBC Radio Manchester's Spirit of Christmas Concert at the BBC Philharmonic Studios. The choir performed alongside the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, The Songs of Praise choir of the year Inspirational Voices and the Kantos choir (featuring former Manley Parker Miss Shercliff). The choir were in fabulous form as they performed Merry Christmas Everyone by Mark and Helen Johnson, whilst our own Sam Glennie was the featured soloist in the timeless carol Once in Royal David's City. Both Sam and the choir showed great bravery and skill to perform for a very large audience, musicians and Manchester celebrities such as Julie Hesmondhalgh. The recorded concert is due to air on BBC Radio Manchester on Christmas Eve at 6pm and Christmas Day at 12 noon.
