Queen’s School Chester‘s ‘Young Voices’ were honoured to perform in front of Her Majesty the Queen and the Duchess of Sussex.
The Queen unveiled a plaque to celebrate the official opening of the Storyhouse a year after it opened its doors to the public.
A massed choir of almost 300 children sang an inspiring, emotive piece entitled ‘Drop in the ocean’. They were accompanied by a small band of actor-musicians from the upcoming production of ‘Swallows and Amazons’. The choir was directed by our very own Mrs Corlett – how amazing!
After the performance the girls were interviewed for the waiting news crews about their thrilling experience before the Royal party left for a Civic Lunch at the Town Hall where they were joined by other VIP dignitaries including our Headmistress in waiting Mrs Wallace-Woodroffe and Head Girl Alex McDonald.
