School enjoys annual Yuletide liturgy and celebration event

22nd December 2014


STUDENTS and staff captured the Christmas spirit in style with a festive offering of music and song.

A packed house of friends and family enjoyed the annual Yuletide liturgy and celebration event at Carmel College, Darlington.

The Sixth Form Singers had guests mesmerized with beautiful renditions of Amazing, All I Want For Christmas and Bridge Over Troubled Waters.

The junior choir took to the stage with every child’s delight and parent’s torment Frozen, while the orchestra entered into the festive spirit with Winter Wonderland.
Senior choir performed the haunting melody of The Lord is My Shepherd while the staff band led a festive sing-along.

Young string players celebrated their musical studies so far with a performance of The Beginnings of the Partnership, the wind band took up the delights of Sleigh Ride and the staff choir performed Santa Baby.

A global flavour was provided by the international group, who performed Chinese Christmas, and the GCSE music group’s African interpretation of the festive period.

Carmel College principal Maura Regan said: “The annual liturgy is a delightful way to start the festivities and share the meaning of Christmas with staff, students friends and family.

“An awful lot of work goes into the celebration and I am always amazed by the sheer musical talent of our staff and students.”
