A SCHOOL choir has been selected to perform at the world famous Adrian Boult concert hall in Birmingham on Wednesday.

And the singers from the Links Primary School in Eaglescliffe were fine tuning their performance today (Monday, July 7) which will celebrate the life and achievements of Captain James Cook.

The choir was one of hundreds from across the country who auditioned for the chance to perform but one of only 25 to make the grade.

They will be performing a set of songs that have been written by their musical director, Clare Hewson, called “The James Cook Adventure”.

The songs describe the life of the Middlesbrough born adventurer and donned their costumes for a final dress rehearsal in the school hall before heading to the Music For Youth National Festival at the 520 seat auditorium at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
