Pupils’ recital at care home:
TALENTED youngsters from Altrincham Girls’ Grammar School paid a visit to a local care home to entertain the residents with a musical recital.
Twenty pupils from the school took part in the hour-long performance at Allingham House, which included music from the chamber choir, senior string quartet and several soloists.
The numbers performed incorporated a wide variety of styles, from contemporary American choral composer Eric Whiteacre to an arrangement of the 1970s hit ‘Downtown’.
Kay Johnson, group hospitality and client experience manager at Allingham House, said: “The visit from the girls was wonderful. Regardless of their age, our residents love music and we aim to entertain and delight them as frequently as possible with special performances and one-off shows.
“The pupils from Altrincham Grammar School for Girls were incredibly professional and performed a fabulous recital that has had toes tapping every since.”
Julia Mayall, head of music at the school, added: “The girls relish every opportunity to perform and we were delighted to be invited to Allingham House. It was lovely to see the residents enjoying the girls’ recital.”
