Harrogate Christmas Concert

Mrs Paxton's Choir teamed up with a huge range of schools from Harrogate to put on the most tremendous performance to get everyone warmed up for Christmas.  The Choir had been practising for many months as a school and alongside their group of schools which included- Saltergate, Coppice, Dacre Braithwaite and Belmont Grosvenor.  One of the group rehearsals was hosted by Birstwith where all the schools visited our school and practised their songs for the big performance.  These rehearsals were led by Marilynne Davies and Bryan Western -Two highly accomplished conductors.  

The choir spent the whole of Saturday afternoon practising at the Harrogate Convention Centre where they went through their performance and enjoyed other groups of schools practise their medley. As the evening set in, the Convention Centre filled and the children took their places for the main event.  Tilly had been selected to sing an opening solo for the first verse of 'Once in Royal David's City', which she did with aplomb and from then on, the school put on an excellent performance.  They sang with confidence and clarity and did the school proud.  Mrs Paxton even conducted the school's group in their section which she did with true professionalism.  Well done and thank-you all of you for taking part and giving up so much of your time for such a fantastic event.  All the money raised will be used to support the Harrogate Homeless Project.
