CAFOD Carol Concert
SJR Performing Arts Department has taken the lead on the annual Liverpool Archdiocese CAFOD Carol Concert for many years now. This even usually takes place in early December and is hosted by St Teresa's Church, Up Holland. We are so proud of this event and how it has grown over the years.
We have a choir of over 120 students and pupils from four of our Catholic partner high schools (St John Fisher, St Edmund Arrowsmith, St Peter's and Our Lady Queen of Peace), two primary schools (St Teresa's and St Mary & St John's) and ourselves plus singers from the community and past SJR students come back to be part of this amazing event. We then have an orchestra of 30-40 players made up of pupils, students and community musicians to accompany the event.
Each year James Gresty and David Wall have written music for the event and you can listen to some of the live recordings of these pieces below.
