The hour long performance was undertaken by 20 pupils from the school, ranging from Years 8-13, and included music from the school’s 20 voice Chamber Choir, Senior String Quartet and several soloists. Music performed incorporated a wide variety of styles from contemporary American choral composer Eric Whitacre to an arrangement of the 1970s hit ‘Downtown’.
Residents and staff at the purpose-built 86 bed care facility located on Deansgate Lane came together for the performance and really enjoyed the girls’ performance.
Group hospitality and client experience manager at Allingham House, Kay Johnson, commented: “The visit from the girls was wonderful. Regardless of their age, our residents love music and we aim to entertain and delight them as frequently as possible with special performances and one-off shows. The pupils from Altrincham Grammar School for Girls were incredibly professional and performed a fabulous recital that has had toes tapping ever since.”
Head of Music at Altrincham Girls’ Grammar School, Julia Mayall, added: “The girls relish every opportunity to perform and we were delighted to be invited to Allingham House. It was lovely to see the residents enjoying the girls’ recital.”
