Christmas with Heart – our choir sing live on air!
It’s been a busy time for our choir and Big Band – not only have they played their own concert at the academy, but they have been spreading Christmas cheer at local care homes for the elderly, at local primary schools and at our Senior Citizens Christmas Party.
For a group of our Year 10 singers, their most memorable performance was a trip to the Heart North West studios in central Manchester on Friday 14 December. Our singers joined a multi-generational choir put together by Phil Reynolds, who teaches singing lessons to our talented students and to other singers across Manchester. The choir did us proud with renditions of White Christmas, A Million Dreams (from The Greatest Showman) and a special rendition of 11 Sleeps ’til Santa – a festive countdown played on the station each day in December.
Whilst on the radio, Music Teacher Ms Stott mentioned that we are fundraising for our musicians to go to Germany in the summer. If you would like to donate to that appeal please visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/coopgermanytour or look out for fundraising events at the academy coming soon.
Have a look at the photos and videos below of our students at Heart Radio.
