Musical experiences are highly valued at Clatford. The children experience and participate in a wide range of live music through visits, visitors and events.
Annual whole school events include:
Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Every year, schools across the country practise our music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1 million pounds for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.
With a full live band, backing singers and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence, it makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine.
Every year we have concerts at The O2 in London, The LG Arena in Birmingham, The Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, and the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.
National Sing Up Day: Each class chooses, rehearses and performs a song . Sometimes we invite pupils from other schools with which our 'Singing Ambassadors' have been working to join us and contribute a song of their choice. The class songs are interspersed with favourites chosen by the children. This afternoon is a celebration of singing!
