PUPILS from Peel Clothworkers’ School took part in a concert at St German’s Cathedral in Peel.
Children and staff had been preparing for the evening for a month prior to the concert. The school has taken part in the concert every year, for the past 20 years.
Teacher Nola Fairbairn, who co-ordinated the cathedral concert said: ‘All the staff involved in the concert were really pleased with the amount of hard work and dedication the children put into the concert, and we really feel as though it showcased the many talents our children have.
‘We had a wide variety of acts performing; the school choir, the Clothworkers’ skipping team, Manx readers, Manx Dancing and instruments including guitar, violin, trumpet and tin whistle. Jack Parker also sang a beautiful rendition of Danny Boy.’
The concert was one of a series of summer concerts that take place from mid-May to mid-September, featuring a variety of entertainment from choirs around the island. The cathedral’s aim being to provide a variety of programmed events that showcase Manx talent, although they occasionally have performers from off the island.
Nola, added: ‘We would like to thank the cathedral for allowing us to perform, and Don Roworth for all his help during rehearsals.’
