YOUTH choirs and orchestras organised by Cheshire County Council’s music team are taking part in a performance which will be one of the last concerts during Liverpool’s City of Culture status.
A Cheshire Christmas is being staged before an audience of 800 people at St George’s Hall in Liverpool city centre on Sunday, December 21.
Taking part will be around 200 children and young people who are members of the Cheshire Youth Orchestra, Cheshire Youth Brass Band, Cheshire Youth Choir, Cheshire Youth Training Orchestra, Cheshire Music for Life Big Band and Oaklands School Choir.
“I am really looking forward to what promises to be a memorable occasion,” said county council chairman Steve Wilkinson.
“A mixture of Christmas favorites both new and old will be performed and I know that rehearsals for this event began way back in September.
“It is the first time that everyone concerned has played at St George’s Hall and will be particularly memorable being one of the last events being held during Liverpool’s Capital of Culture status.
”The county council has a proud history of young people being involved in these events and I am sure that this concert will be a fitting tribute to all their hard work.”
