A newly-formed Community Choir will play a leading role in Manor CE Academy’s annual carol service at York Minster this December.
Staff, parents, grandparents and friends from the six Hope Learning Trust York schools (Manor CE Academy, Vale of York Academy, Barlby High School, Burton Green Primary, Poppleton Ousebank Primary and Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary) are invited to join the Hope Community Choir which will perform at the service on Tuesday 5 December.
Dave Lowe, Choirmaster and Head of Music at Manor CE Academy, said “Our carol concert in the Minster is always spectacular. Once again, our passionate young musicians and new musical arrangements promise to make this another remarkable and unique occasion. This year though, we wanted to do something even more special to involve the Hope family – and so the Hope Community Choir was born!
“The choir provides an opportunity for people within the Hope Learning Trust to get together at a really important time of year, meet others from our wider community and enjoy the magnificent experience of singing together in the Minster at Christmas-time. It is completely free to take part, all materials will be provided and no previous singing experience is necessary. All we ask is that participants attend at least two of three rehearsals at Manor before the big night.”
Anyone interested in joining the Hope Community Choir should register online at https://doodle.com/poll/kzhgnx449e285i3b with their name and the school they are connected to.
The choir will sing a featured performance accompanied by the Manor Concert Orchestra and have priority seating at the front of the Minster from where they will lead the carol singing on the evening.
