Children from The Firs choir took part in the wonderful ‘Amasing’ concert held at the Storyhouse earlier this week. The Amasing concerts spanned 3 nights in total and involved over 34 primary schools and 1000 pupils. Also performing were students from The University of Chester, students from House of Dance, professional composers Andrew Smith and Matt Baker, The Hammond School dancers, The Catholic High School choir “Voicebox”, and the Deesign choir, Manchester Show Choir and adult vocal group “Harmonix Vocal Collective”.
The Firs Choir were delighted to participate in this musical spectacular and enjoyed singing a huge range of songs. Some of the songs were brand new and had been specially composed for the project. Two of the songs were written in aid of charities Young Minds UK and Dementia UK. The children also sang songs supporting Chester Zoo’s Palm Oil project and a song written by Matt Baker in aid of the Refugee crisis. All songs sung were accompanied by a professional band led by composer Andrew Smith.
