A musical mother and daughter are to perform on the same concert stage for the first time.

Julia and Lauren Taylor, of Oakes , are taking part in a charity concert in aid of the Brackenhall-based Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice at St Stephen’s Church, Lindley.

Julia, 52, plays alto sax with 15-piece band Sundown Swing while 11-year-old daughter Lauren sings with award-winning Lindley Junior School Choir.

The concert takes place on Friday, June 10 and provides the last chance for the pair to appear together as Lauren leaves Lindley for Rastrick High School in September.

“It was an opportunity too good to miss,” said Julia, whose husband Terry plays the trombone and is a former music teacher.

“It will mean such a lot to share the same platform with Lauren and the rest of the choir.”

Lindley Junior School Choir has had a brilliant 2016 so far, winning the BBC Songs of Praise Junior Choir of the Year competition and being awarded Junior Choir of the Year in the Barnardo’s Choir Festival at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Locally, the choir – led by Alison North – also took three trophies at Huddersfield’s Mrs Sunderland musical competition.

Julia said: “I am so proud of the choir and Lauren’s part in it. They have been very successful for a long time but they have done so well this year.

“They work so very hard and then go and perform at all the big venues and nothing fazes them.

“The choir has achieved a consistently high standard over the years considering it is a different group every year as the older ones leave and new members join.

“This will be one of the last chances to hear this group before the school year ends.”
