Joining Voices in the Cheddar Valley

28 April 2020 (by Patricia Page (admin))

Dear all,

 As you are aware, Mrs Lynch would normally be providing music lessons to the whole school. She also leads a 'Joining Voices' concert, which is held across many schools in the Cheddar Valley.Below you will find a message from her about this and how you can still join in! She would love to hear from you and how you are getting on with her singing lessons too!

Somerset Music (and myself!) are keen that we honour our planned project in some way and so I have spent some time re-planning how this would work in the current technological climate.

It feels, more than ever, that the idea of Joining Voices across the Cheddar Valley is an essential and positive one. I have selected some great songs to learn, some from Sing up and some not and plan the following:

5 weekly recorded sessions teaching warm ups and songs

1 "concert" session - when I sing through everything.

The project will still be aimed at year 3 and 4, but that doesn't mean younger pupils can't participate if you wanted them too.

I would love to think there might be a way that we could somehow collect together examples of everyone singing a long to the final concert and digitally put a concert together - but at the moment - that's a technological step too far for me!!

Best Wishes 

Mrs Lynch
