Ear­lier this month, mu­si­cal stu­dents from Mal­ton School par­tic­i­pated in the Christ­mas Con­cert, per­form­ing for two hours with songs by the orches­tra, the choir, the soul band, the year eight group and many oth­ers.

While the choir were singing Away in a Manger, a group in school who have been learn­ing sign lan­guage signed along so that the hard of hear­ing were able to fol­low the lyrics.

A pop­u­lar part of the con­cert was when the main theme tune from the Pi­rates of the Caribbean film was per­formed by the orches­tra.

The deputy head­teacher Mr Fen­wick even got up on stage to per­form the song Come Alive from The Great­est Show­man. This per­for­mance was a taster of next April’s school pro­duc­tion of Bar­num. The song was per­formed as a duet with the star of the show, Josh McBurnie.

The Christ­mas Con­cert cul­mi­nated bril­liantly in a mass per­for­mance of Merry Christ­mas Ev­ery­body.

Mal­ton School orches­tra en­ter­tain at the Christ­mas Con­cert ear­lier this month.

The Sign Lan­guage Group signed at the con­cert for the hard of hear­ing.
