Liverpool Met Cathedral Girls’ Choir thrill audience at special concert
October 5, 2019

A leading cathedral choir were the special guests at Rydal Penrhos for a fantastic event last week.

The school welcomed the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Girls’ Choir on Friday, October 4 for a concert, which drew a large crowd of school and community members to the Memorial Hall for the occasion.

They were joined on stage by the Rydal Penrhos Choir for their first formal event of the academic year, and those in attendance were also treated to a sensational solo set from soprano Bethany Hartness.

Rounding off the concert in style was Year 12 pupil Tegid Goodman-Jones, who demonstrated his exceptional talent with a five-song contribution to what was a wonderful evening of entertainment.

The Cathedral Choir plays a significant role within the working life of the facility and is active within the Archdiocese and the City of Liverpool, singing at many civic, ecumenical and academic services. 

Broadcasting regularly, the Choir has sung many times for both BBC television and radio and independent broadcasters and has also made a number of recordings. 

Singing away from home since the 1970s, tours have included Belgium, Spain, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Germany, the USA and Canada as well as many cities within the British Isles. 

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “We were honoured to welcome the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Girls’ Choir to Rydal Penrhos for the concert, and their performance was absolutely extraordinary.

“Our Senior Choir also made a lasting contribution to the event, as did our wonderfully talented singer Tegid, and I would like to sincerely thank everyone involved.”
