Shrewsbury's Chapel Choir is in very fine form under its Director, Alex Mason. In the past two years, the Choir has sung Evensong at St George's Chapel Windsor, Worcester Cathedral, Southwell Minster, Tewkesbury Abbey and, last September, at The Queen's College, Oxford.
Come and join them for a service of uplifting choral music in this their first visit to Manchester Cathedral.
The present Cathedral building dates from 1421 when a collegiate church was established for Manchester. It became a Cathedral in 1847.
Following the service, the Headmaster and senior members of staff, including the Director of Music John Moore, will be hosting a Drinks Reception in the top floor suite of the National Football Museum (just a couple of minutes' walk across the Cathedral Gardens).
We hope to run a Supporters' Coach from Shrewsbury to Manchester free of charge.
Please contact Nikki Bevan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 20th January to confirm your attendance at Evensong or to book a place on the coach.
