Our final musical event of the season was our Celebration Christmas Concert on Thursday 20th December, with over 100 children performing. This event is always a full house and the audience enjoyed performances by Choir, Jazz Band, Folk Band, Orchestra, Steel Pans, Samba Band, String Group, Guitar Group and from the rock bands we have in every year group. It is amazing to see the confidence and professionalism of our students, and parents & visitors alike were impressed by the high standards. Local councillor Joanna Midgley tweeted us: “Thanks for a lovely concert @loretochorlton – wonderful performances by the students. Amazing talent” and a parent wrote “Woke up this morning full of Christmas spirit thanks largely to @loretohighmusic and the amazing talent they showed last night! It’s incredible the progress they have made! All very proud parents last night!”. The concert was repeated on the last day of term so that each and every student in our school had the opportunity to celebrate the start of Christmas, and to attend a concert where they could see the fruits of all our musicians’ hard work and dedication – inspiring stuff…congratulations to all who performed.
