I finished the day yeaterday at the Town Hall for the Leeds Schools Music Association's Christmas Festival Concert 2010...

It was a wonderful celebration of our young people with over 500 young performers and some older ones releasing an extra-ordinary magic. The Festival Choir of around 360 children was drawn from 49 Leeds primary schools and they were magic! The City of Leeds Youth Orchestra were brilliant, the Leeds Youth Choir and the Leeds Youth Choir sang beautifully and the Leeds Silver Doves were amazing. The conductor and compere for the evening was Dougie Scarfe and for the packed house, with Cllr Jim McKenna, the Lord Mayor, and Cllr Andrea McKenna, the Lady Mayoress and colleagues from St George's Crypt, the concert marked the beginning of Christmas. FRom the cheers an d the applause it was obvious that everyone had a simply brilliant evening which ended with a rousing encore of Saviour's Day.
