Pupils take centre stage for musical celebration

July 6, 2015

 

Hundreds of pupils from Wolverhampton schools are preparing to take part in musical celebrations on Wednesday (8 July, 2015) as part of the city's first Visitor Week.

 

 

More than 200 children are set to present a samba performance using a range of percussion instruments in Queen Square from 11.30am-12.30pm – and the same evening 500 children will take part in a musical concert for parents and guardians at the Civic Hall which will include performances of Zadok the Priest by Handel and Let it Go from the hit movie, Frozen.

 

The project is being led by Wolverhampton's Music Service as part of CBBC's Ten Pieces scheme, which aims to open up the world of classical music to children and young people, inspiring them to develop their own creative responses to individual pieces through music, dance or digital art.

 

 

 

 

Councillor Claire Darke, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "This is a very exciting opportunity for hundreds of our children and young people to show off their musical talents.

 

 

"I'm delighted they have been able to play a part in the Ten Pieces project, which is teaching them all about the works of great composers and how to go about composing and performing music."

 

 

Children from 13 primary schools and eight secondary schools have been rehearsing individually and Wednesday's performance will be the first time they have come together as one to perform, with Councillor Darke adding: "I'd encourage people to come along to their performance in Queen Square and cheer them on."

Wednesday's performances are among the exciting range of events taking place during Wolverhampton's inaugural Visitor Week, which runs until Sunday (12 July, 2015).

 

 

Visitor Week is a great opportunity for anyone living, working, visiting or doing business in Wolverhampton to discover what the city has to offer. It is also part of Wolverhampton City Conference Season which is helping to improve opportunities, prosperity and health for residents, support businesses to grow and develop and help local people to compete for jobs.
