Primary Schools' Choral Day (Broad Chalke CofE Primary School, Salisbury)

This event is an opportunity for children to experience singing in a large group under the direction of an experienced conductor and to perform in a large venue in front of an audience, developing music beyond the scope available to primary schools in this area.

Aims

 

This event is an opportunity for children to experience singing in a large group under the direction of an experienced conductor and to perform in a large venue in front of an audience, developing music beyond the scope available to primary schools in this area.

Background

Our Director of Music chairs a local association of music teachers from all sectors of education.  The opportunity to collaborate in large projects was identified through conversations in this forum.  This year's project was the eighth time this has happened.

Resources

We dedicate the following resourcs to the project:

  • Two members of staff for the day
  • The venue (school chapel)
  • Lunch for all participants

There is no cost to participating schools.

Pupil Involvement

All participants are from state schools.  Our involvement is to provide the venue, staff and logistics.  Partner schools generally choose to bring Year 5 and 6 pupils.

Frequency

This is an annual project.
