A virtual Inspired Christmas concert
Despite the limitations caused by Covid-19, the much-anticipated concert, organised by Inspire: Culture, Learning and Libraries, working with National Youth Choirs GB, went ahead as a virtual event, allowing the singers to safely sing Christmas songs together.
With performances from local Nottinghamshire schools, Inspired Voices and a brand-new NHS online choir, the concert provided some much-needed festive cheer - and even a virtual sing-along!
Pupils from Minster School in Southwell sang a beautiful rendition of “In December”, while pupils at John Blow Primary and Abbey Primary sang together a wonderful version of “A Child’s Credo”, which they practiced in their class bubbles.
The NHS online choir, established this year with the aim to give staff a break from the pressures of working during the pandemic, performed two songs, including Carol of the Bells.
The Inspired Christmas Concert was a roaring success and we look forward to hearing (and hopefully watching in person) the choirs together again next year.
