SCMAT Singalong concert launches

More than 220 pupils from schools across South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust will come together to perform as a group at the first cross-Trust music concert.

Children from Chetwynde, Ormsgill, Vickerstown, Cambridge, South Walney Juniors, Newbarns and Greengate Juniors will join the singalong hosted by Chetwynde School.

They will perform songs from popular music and the shows including Consider Yourself from Oliver, assembly favourite Power In Me, the Wellerman sea shanty, and Disney’s Moana Medley.

The finale will bring all the pupiils together singing the uplifting Samba Carnival song.

Katherine Parkinson, head of creative faculty at Chetwynde School, said the idea had come from members of the Trust’s professional network for music.

“It is World Music Day on June 21st that’s why we picked this date,” she said, “Pupils are taking part from a variety of year groups ranging from Year 3 to Year 6 and it will be the first event for the new music group formed across our MAT schools.

“We wanted to do something to bring all our schools together and celebrate music and performance and showcase the talent across the Trust to inspire everyone.”
