37 musicians of St. John Fisher Catholic High School of North Yorkshire, England will be performing at Meridian Place on Friday, July 12th at 7pm. Harrogate is a large town in North Yorkshire, England with a rich musical heritage that includes the North of England’s largest arts festival and an international youth music festival that draws musicians from all over the world. Part of a biannual tour programme, the tour will feature the Concert Band, Jazz Orchestra and all musicians who will sing as part of the tour choir. Mr Craig Ratcliffe, Director of Music will conduct the Concert Band and Senior Choir, along with Mr Nigel Beetles who will direct the Jazz Orchestra.

The school is delighted to be visiting Barrie, one of Harrogate’s international twin towns as part of the concert tour. Dennis Richards, committee member of Harrogate International Partnerships and teacher at St. John Fisher commented “It’s great that more young people from Harrogate can link up with Barrie following on from the visit of the Tewit Youth Band last year”. Craig Ratcliffe, Head of music added “It’s really important for students to see the wider world, and to be so welcomed by Barrie is a real honour”.
