Children from Chester joined voices with thousands of others to form one of the largest combined school choirs in the world.

Youngsters from Frodsham Manor House Primary School were joined by composer and musical director Matt Baker, of Theatre in the Quarter, at Young Voices at the Phones4U Arena in Manchester.

They sang two movements from Mozart’s Requiem and teacher Naomi Anstice went on stage to sing with the Young Voices Teacher Choir.

Year 5 and 6 children from Clutton CE Primary School performed at the event last Tuesday (March 3) after practising since the autumn term under the tuition of teachers, Mrs Naomi Baines, Mrs Alex Farrow and Miss Charlotte Stenhouse.

Guest stars for the 2015 event were musicians Lucy Spragan and Tom Billington and songs included tunes from South Africa as a tribute to Nelson Mandela, a food-themed medley and pieces from Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals.

The evening was summed up by Clutton pupil Ewan Davies,10, who said: “If I was a super hero, the power I would like to have is to turn back time, so that I could do the concert every night!”

Other schools from the area that took part in the four day event are: Childer Thornton Primary School, St Oswald's CE Primary School, Mill View Primary School, Boughton Heath Primary School and Tarporley CE Primary School.
