We would like to say a HUGE ‘Thank You’ to Southport Orchestra for giving our Junior Choir the opportunity to perform alongside them at ‘SO Festive’, held at Emmanuel Church in Southport. Mrs Rimmer & the children practised so hard for the concert & their dedication paid off – their performance was stunning! ‘Walking in the Air’ was one of the many highlights of the evening; being able to sing a specially arranged version with over seventy talented members of Southport Orchestra was something our children will never forget. The Junior Choir also performed a ‘Christmas Medley’ with the orchestra, as well as singing ‘Christmas Has Started’ & 'Rock Around the Shops'. The audience of over 500 was spellbound by our Junior Choir.
Our children had front rows seats (pews!) to watch as Southport Orchestra performed a wonderful range of Christmas favourites: Prokofieva’s ‘Troika’, Tchaikovsky’s ‘Waltz from the Nutcracker Suite’, and a selection of tunes from Irving Berlin’s ’White Christmas’.
The audience was also able to join in with several Christmas Carols: The First Nowell, Hark! The Herald’s Angels Sing, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen & O Come All Ye Faithful.
Southport Bach Choir also performed a number of superb songs.
Woodlands' Junior Choir rounded the night off with a fabulous version of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.
The pupils, parents & staff of Woodlands all had a wonderful evening & it will stay in the memory for a long, long time.
We hope the photos give you a wee bit of an idea of just how special the evening was.
