Beeston Hall pupils perform with Blake

Cromer Pier's Pavilion Theatre was the venue for a very special concert when widely-acclaimed Brit Award winning classical 'boy band' Blake performed to a packed auditorium.

A group of young choristers from Beeston Hall School were invited by the band to perform with them. Under the direction of Emma Dale, Beeston's Director of Music, the children had learnt all of the music from memory in a relatively short space of time, with only one short rehearsal in the theatre with the band just before the concert.

The Beeston choir joined Blake for a performance of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen and then, along with the Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society supported the band in, I Vow To Thee my Country by Holst and Puccini's Nessun Dorma, before taking well deserved applause and watching Blake leave the stage.

The band returned to sing an encore and the audience was treated to the Band, the Beeston Choir and the Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society singing Parry's hymn Jerusalem.

A spokesman for Beeston Hall School said: 'The boys and girls were stunning; their singing was faultless and beautiful and they conducted themselves like true professionals and worthy ambassadors for the school.'
