THE members of Cookstown Youth Choir were recently invited by the organisers of the World Police and Fire Games to sing at the appreciation dinner at Belfast City Hall.
The choir sang in front of 300 guests from all over the world including several government Ministers.
Under the direction of their conductor Meta Bell and accompanied by Norma Black, the girls sang in the entrance hall while the guests were arriving and then proceeded to the banqueting hall stage where choir member Olivia Moran gave a brief background of the choir and introduced the songs they were performing.
Kate McGowan sang the first verse of Danny Boy and the audience joined in with the choir in the singing of this most popular song.
Mike Graham, President World Police and Fire Games President congratulated them on their wonderful performance. And one VIP tweeted: ‘Cookstown Youth Choir light up Police and Fire Games Host Dinner.’
Conductor Meta Bell said she was very proud of the choir and it had been a great honour for them to be invited to perform at such a prestigious event.
Before leaving the City Hall each member was presented with the much sought after Belfast Police and Fire Games badge.
