Come and See Chichester Students Making their Own Kind of Music
West Sussex Music and the schools of Chichester are excited to announce that tickets are now on sale for Chichester Sings Live 2019. The event, which will be held at Chichester Festival Theatre on the evening of the 17thJanuary, will see 300 pupils from across the Chichester area uniting as one massed choir, accompanied by a live band, to present an evening of uplifting song; bringing children from secondary and primary schools together, in harmony.
Led by celebrated singer/songwriter and West Sussex Music Project Partner, Emily Barden, the event has been conceived as a celebration of the emotive power of songs and music, and how they are used to celebrate, worship, uplift, reflect and to dream. The event is part of West Sussex Music’s wider singing strategy which aims to enable access for as many children as possible to large-scale events and enriching vocal opportunities.
“Everyone has a song that is special to them, and this event is about exploring the power of song, in an upbeat, positive and celebratory way.”Explains Judith Finlay, Leader for School Engagement, West Sussex Music. “It is also a fantastic opportunity for the pupils of Chichester to join together and sing in a professional setting, with a live band and conducted by an inspiring choral specialist. As they are soon to discover, the sensation of standing on stage and hearing applause is incredibly life-affirming and confidence-building and this is something we’d like all children in the county to experience.”
Tickets are available from the Chichester Festival Theatre box office, so book yours today and join in celebrating the vocal and musical talents of pupils from across the city.
