Una Voce Concert in Sacred Heart Crosby

 Una Voce Opera Company was founded by the McAulay Family and Friends on 26th September 1996 with the mission of: Bringing Opera to all and all to Opera at affordable prices and in accessible venues whilst educating and entertaining the public and giving singers a platform to express their art and demonstrate their voices.

The organisation marvellously achieved their objective on Saturday evening when the brought together a group of soloists to perform at the Sacred Heart School in Crosby. Their music ranged from opera through to songs from the shows. The appreciative audience was seemed to love every moment. My job was to draw the raffle and handout thank you gifts to the performers.

The venue was the Sacred Heart School in Crosby being hospitality and facilities matched the quality of the performers. We had our interval refreshments (provided by Gillions of Crosby) in the new VIth  Form Centre.

At the entrance to the new centre there is an artwork-the Heart of Crosby which the school commissioned. They have inventively shared it with the feeder school and local churches.

i had the pleasure of sitting next to the redoubtable Brenda Murray who is a bit of a Crosby legend and is the oldest old girl of Sacred Heart. I also learned that another former pupil is Danielle Thomas of whom the Head Teacher spoke very highly especially in regard to her generosity in spending time at the school.
