Music tour to Liverpool

Staff and pupils from St Faith’s, Cambridge arrived in Liverpool for a four day music tour.

The party containing 51 pupils (aged 9 -13 years old) and six teachers went to Birkenhead High School where they had the fun of playing with their orchestra and listening to the schools choir, as well as performing their own pieces.

In the evening St Faith’s played a concert at Liverpool Parish Church, the home church of Miss Kennerley, music teacher at St Faith’s who had organised the tour, with the help of her family.

The tour began with a trip to The Beatles Story, punctuated by a reception at Liverpool Town Hall with the Mayor of Liverpool, Gary Millar.

Mrs Bunce, director of music St Faith’s, said: “Our Senior Brass ensemble announced his arrival with a fanfare much to the delight of the wonderfully welcoming Mayor.

“Counsellor Millar spoke about his city with such passion and he was clearly delighted to welcome visitors from Cambridge.
“The visit ended with two photo opportunities: a group picture on the magnificent staircase in the entrance hall and our senior brass who joined the mayor on the steps of the town hall. By this point the Mayor was wearing one pupil’s blazer (complete with prefect badges) and holding a trumpet!

“The next stage of our tour took place in the wonderful Liverpool Cathedral, a stunning gothic building.

“After evensong pupils were privileged to have an organ demonstration from the charismatic associate organist, Daniel Bishop. From the mobile console we heard awesome music.

“We left Liverpool happy and tired, after a wonderful tour in this friendly and beautiful city”.
