Sale & Altrincham Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
