Pupils encouraged to embrace musical performance at workshop day

Liverpool Hope University will host a Secondary Schools’ Singing Day as part of the University’s 175th anniversary celebrations.

On Thursday 21st November, six regional schools will attend a day of intensive rehearsals and workshops at the Creative Campus, concluding with a performance in the magnificent surroundings of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.

The event will also mark the beginning of an exciting new partnership between Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, which seeks to promote singing and other musical activities to young people in the region.

Dr Christopher McElroy, Director of Music at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, will lead the day alongside staff and students from Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.

More than 200 talented pupils will perform Hear my prayer - Mendelssohn, For the beauty of the earth - John Rutter, and Wade in the water/Down by the riverside - which was composed in 1844, the same year that Liverpool Hope's founding colleges were established.
