March 22nd, 2007 - Schools' Prom


St. Georges Hall, Bradford's premier venue for the concert performances, last night hosted the Annual Schools' Prom featuring over 300 musical pupils from across the Bradford Metropolitan area.

The concert featured performances by the Bradford Youth Orchestra (who will tour Poland this Summer) local soprano Julia Williams from Bradford Girls' Grammar School , and other young musicians from both primary and secondary schools who all performed to the packed house!

Making their third appearance in St Georges Hall in 6 months, the Bradford Girls' Choir brought to a close the first half of the concert. Opening with 'Hail, Holy Queen' from Sister Act the choir then sang 'God, beyond all names' which they recently performed on their BBC Radio 4 broadcast. The children in the audience particularly enjoyed the performance of 'You raise me, up' which followed, many of them could be seen mouthing the words as the choir was singing! The Girls' choir selections finished with a lively arrangement of 'Freedom is coming' complete with African drums bring the the first half of the concert to a rousing conclusion.
