Standing Ovation for TTS Choir at Royal Albert Hall.

Mon, 22 Nov 2010

Thomas Telford School Choir received a standing ovation for their performance of the classic Queen hit, 'Bohemian Rhapsody' at the Royal Albert Hall.

The students were invited to close the second night of the 2010 Music for Youth Schools Proms and were thrilled to receive a 'good luck' email from Queen's legendary rock guitarist, Brian May.

Head of Music at Thomas Telford School, Mr Gareth Howard said: "It was an absolutely amazing experience for us all to perform in such a wonderful venue and a privilege to close the second night of the Schools Proms. An evening none of us will forget!"

Amongst the 85 youngsters who travelled to London, were eight students who left Thomas Telford School in July having completed their A Levels, Mr Howard explained: "It was important for all of us that these students should be included as they had been part of the choir during our journey through the Music for Youth regional festivals earlier in the year. I was so pleased that they were able to take a day from their university studies to join us."

Headmaster, Sir Kevin Satchwell, added: "I was delighted to join around 100 of our parents at the Royal Albert Hall to witness the choir's terrific performance."

The Choir are performing a Concert at St John's Church, Essington on Monday 6 December. Please contact Thomas Telford School for further details
