Subject Date Issued

Emailed out to the school choir on 9th March 2018

Congratulations to the children in our school choir who performed so well at the Music Festival on Wednesday and won their class. Mrs Willis and I were so proud of them. Thank you to parents and family members who came to support us. 

I am pleased to tell you that the Regional Festival of Music for Youth (which had to be postponed due to the snow last week) has been rearranged to take place on Wednesday 28th March at Rochdale Town Hall. The session runs from 12 -2.30pm. We have not been informed of the running order. 

The following groups will be performing: 

Prenton High School Junior Choir & Soloists

United Saints St Vincent’s & St Michaels

Tarporley High School Choir

Tarporley High School Concert Band

Rastrick High School Choir



Please could all choir members bring a packed lunch on Wednesday 28th March as we will be having an early lunch before going to the Town Hall. The children need to wear their long sleeved white shirts and uniform skirts/shorts/trousers and ties will be provided if needed. There is no charge to come and watch us perform. Successful choirs from this event are invited to perform in the National Festival of Music for Youth in Birmingham in June. We will not be informed whether we have been successful until after Easter.


The choir will also be performing at the Fairtrade coffee afternoon which has been rearranged for Wednesday 21st March.


If your child cannot attend the 28th March, please email acolgan@st-vincents.rochdale.sch.uk


Thank you for your continued support.
