Over the past few months, we’ve been working on our Carol For Yorkshire; an exciting new competition that was run by Greenhead College in collaboration with Musica Kirklees, which saw students from schools across the district compose their own Charity Christmas Carol.
The winner was to be released in aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation; a children’s charity who make the wishes of seriously ill children become reality.
The winning carol, by Louis Enright was performed by approximately 125 singers from the Greenhead College Choir and three Huddersfield based primary schools; Mount Pleasant Primary School, Spring Grove Junior School and Reinwood Junior School, and will also feature in the Greenhead College annual Christmas Carol Service.
The carol will be released on Monday 3rd December 2018, and will be available as a YouTube video and stream/download on all online music services. Visit http://www.carolforyorkshire.com to find out more; please support us by donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I’ve been spending some time over the summer revamping and adding new songs to my wedding saxophone sets. Please get in touch if you’re looking for a wedding saxophonist. I can provide music for up to 3 hours during your special day, normally for ceremonies, drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts. I am committed to personalising your music for your day and have a broad repertoire, encompassing jazz standards, piano pop covers and well known tunes to help create the perfect atmosphere. I can also take requests for your favourite songs. Although based in Manchester, I travel across the country. The picture above was taken in July this year in Holt, in Norfolk.
Now available on Musicroom and on Amazon.
