On July 1st in Heaton Park, Manchester, there will be a concert to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. One choir from each of the nations of the United Kingdom has been chosen to form a National Children's Choir and we are delighted that Holy Trinity School Choir has been selected to represent England. This is an immense privilege and we are sure that it will be a memorable experience for all the children who are involved.
The choir also won the Dr. Eileen Bentley Choral Shield for the most outstanding choral performance at the Oldham Schools' Music Festival on Friday 17th June. The adjudicator praised the choir for its confident part singing, excellent diction, wide dynamic range, variety of timbres and exceptional musicality. The award was shared with St. Matthew's School, Chadderton. This was an exceptional achievement as the festival was held over five full days and a large number of choirs competed for the shield. Well done to all the children for their hard work and excellent performance.
Look at the fantastic art work produced by the Nursery children which is on display in Oldham Library ! They were studying the artist Mondrian. Pop down to the library and see it for yourself.
