The annual Penrith Schools’ Music Association Carol Festival at St Andrews Church was certainly one not to be missed this year with another ‘outstanding’ performance by the Christmas Choir, who have worked so hard through most of their lunchtimes and at home over the past month.
This year’s carol ‘Follow' was written by Jilly Jarman and celebrates a partnership of 12 years and - believe it or not - 12 Carols all written by Jilly! The Carol Festival is a unique collaborative, non-competitive event which celebrates the musical talents in everyone regardless of ability.
Once again, the children were a credit to the School. Father Colin, School Governor, wrote in our Guestbook: “What are the words that best express the North Lakes Choir's performance at this evening's carol concert? They must include outstanding, exceptional, harmonious, clear and, without doubt, in a class of their own or, more currently, the choir with the 'X' factor.”
