We are delighted to be working again with Thom Meredith who will lead this workshop. He will introduce the children to the Musica Youth Orchestra; explaining how the orchestra is put together and hearing from some of the musical families. This will cover many of the curriculum requirements related to knowledge of musical instruments and the ability to sing well in co-operation with others, and all this in the magnificent Town Hall venue

The Orchestra will also accompany the singing. The songs will be a selection of the most popular songs from previous years which should ensure a true celebration in song after such a long period of not being able to sing together.
