Last Friday was all about these 400+ individuals on stage @BridgewaterHall for @Chethams 50th anniversary concert. Photograph taken during the final rehearsal.

@Nostrebornala @Chethams @LFChorus @BBCRadio3 @AilishTynanEire @MEBLeBrocq Made me cry when I watched it live and made me cry again listening to it on Radio 3 tonight! 🎶🎶🎶 Just awesome @Chethams @stevethrelfall2 @BridgewaterHall

It was harder than a gym work out to help @LFChorus prepare for Mahler 8 with @Chethams - great to hear it on @BBCRadio3 now conducted by @stevethrelfall2. Congratulations to all involved, what fabulous music!#somanynotes #tiredfingers https://t.co/FAgPUbR5Lg

Don’t miss the amazing @Chethams school orchestra & chorus (with a little help from other choirs, including @LFChorus) giving a thrilling performance of #Mahler8 on @BBCRadio3 , with wonderful line up of soloists, including @AilishTynanEire & @MEBLeBrocq.
