March 27th, 2007 - SJC at City Hall

The choir of St. Josephs Catholic College, Bradford yesterday sang at a civic luncheon in City Hall at the invitation of The Lord Mayor. The reception and luncheon was given in honour of the Women's section of the Royal British Legion.

The choir members were honoured to meet the Lord Mayor, Councillor Choudhary Rangzeb & the Lady Mayoress Mrs Zahida Rangzeb. Thanking them for their wonderful singing, the Lord Mayor presented the choir with a crystal vase (which now sits proudly in the schools trophy cabinet!) and golden 'City of Bradford' badges to each choir member.

As the guests of honour arrived for the drinks reception, the choir sang a half hour program of classics, both sacred and secular which included music from shows (Grease, Les Mis) pop bands (Yellow Submarine, You raise me up) Irish folk music (Caleno Custoreme) and Hymns (Amazing Grace, Shout Joyfully to the Lord.)

After dinner, the girls presented a 15 minute program of music in the Banqueting hall itself. The choirs repertoire included some special requests on this occasion. Members of the British Legion requested 'White cliff's of Dover' and 'We'll meet again,' and the Lord Mayor requested the choir close with the county hymn, 'Lord of All Hopefulness.'
