Academy hosts young singers for mu­sic cel­e­bra­tion

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

PUPILS from 16 pri­mary schools came to­gether in a mas­sive cel­e­bra­tion of mu­sic.

The schools, which in­cluded Marl­bor­ough and Parkroyal, as­sem­bled for the Mac­cles­field Mu­sic Festival at Mac­cles­field Academy.

Over two evenings, 30 pupils from each school in years three to six came to­gether as a 200-strong choir to per­form a med­ley backed by a band from the Academy.

High­lights in­cluded a joint gui­tar and drums dis­play by pupils from Mac­cles­field Academy and Parkroyal Pri­mary.

The festival, now in its sec­ond year, was at­tended by Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley and Coun Hilda Gad­dum, Mayor of Cheshire East Coun­cil.

Speak­ing at the festival Mr Rut­ley said: “It was great to be able to sup­port the festival again this year.

“The festival is a re­ally pos­i­tive way of bring­ing schools to­gether, and creat­ing a truly mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The per­for­mances were su­perb, but even more im­por­tantly, ev­ery­one who at­tended could sense the en­joy­ment the pupils were get­ting from tak­ing part and per­form­ing.

“I would like to thank ev­ery­one who helped to or­gan­ise it and, of course, all the per­form­ers over both nights.”
