The photo shows the performance by Olivia Kiernan of All Hallows School in the vocal performances section - good publicity for Rotary as it includes one of the new banners!!
On March 3rd and 4th the Rotary Club of Eccles jointly sponsored the Salford Choral Festival along with Salford Community Leisure who run the music and performing arts service. This replaced the highly successful schools' choir competition (which had run for the past 3 years) and MAPAS's own choir festival.
The Friday event highlighted school and college choirs and we were particularly fortunate to secure the services of Susan and Bernard Tupman and Janet Beckett, experienced musicians to adjudicate. The audience at Patricroft Methodist Church were entertained with energetic performances by all groups and it was an extremely difficult decision to award the trophies to St. Boniface School Choir and Pendleton Show Choir 2017.
On the Saturday, we embarked on a new venture to support soloists, groups and adult choirs which again proved entertaining.
As this event was considered a success by both parties it is probably that the partnership will continue next year.
