On a freezing night in December, the QEGS Choir and Jazz Band joined forces with the Lancashire Schools Jazz Orchestra to entertain parents and friends with a fantastic night of music to get everybody in the mood for Christmas.

Highlights included The Angel Gabriel sang acapella by the choir, the boys’ chamber choir performing God Bless Us, Everyone from Scrooge whilst stood around the Piano and Julie Mathew’s powerful vocals accompanied by the QEGS Jazz Band.

Paul Rigby led the LSJO (Lancashire Schools Jazz Orchestra) and LYJO (Lancashire Youth Jazz Orchestra) in a range of jazz arrangements of well-known Christmas repertoire finishing with everyone in the Main Hall participating in the performance of Silent Night.
