SCHOOL pupils have been working with Tameside Music Service to join voices with children on the other side of the world in an international Sing Up day.
Key Stage 1 classes at St Peter’s RC Primary, Stalybridge, will take part in a special performance on 14 March where they will sing this year’s Sing Up song ‘Be The Change’ – a rousing anthem calling on people to work together to make a positive difference in the world.
They have been working with the music service for six week to prepare for the event, which will be recorded on an interactive map and form part of a world-wide digichoir.
Sing Up day, which involves schools, communities and choirs from around the globe, aims to celebrate the power of song.
Tameside Music Service Lead Vocal Tutor Caroline Ratcliff said: “The children are so excited about singing the same song as other children on the other side of the world on the same day. They have worked really had to learn the song and memorise the actions that we have added.
“We have looked at the interactive Sing Up map and they recognise the enormity of the project and we have talked about what they can do personally to ‘make a change’.
“This is just one example of many exciting projects we work on with schools and communities. At Tameside Music Service we are performers, teachers, tech-wizards and composers who are passionate about supporting people in their musical journey.”
