Norfolk Music hub are inviting pupils and families from across the country to take part in their Virtual Big Sing 2020 bringing an interactive, digital concert to every young person in the country. The vocal leader for this project is Mark De-Lisser who arranged Ben E King’s performance of Stand By Me for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, as well as performing in the choir on the day. Mark will be assisted by some high-profile celebrity singers – the first of which will be announced on Friday 22 May at 2pm, with subsequent celebrities being announced each Friday leading up to the event.
DATE: Friday 19 June 2020 (replayed on Sunday 21 June 2020 at 2pm for anyone who missed it or who wants to relive the experience)
LOCATION: Your school, front room, garden or anywhere where you can sing.
How to take part:
The concert on the 19th June is designed to be accessed by either students who are in school or for families who are home-schooling.
The event itself will be hosted on an unlisted YouTube live video with all comments being filtered before being displayed. This will give a stable and safe platform for all children and young people to take part.
For the event to follow safeguarding guidelines, each household or school taking part in the event on the 19th June are required to sign up via this link:
There is no age restriction for the performance but we do ask that each child and young person signs up using the parent or guardians email address. On the day of the event everyone will be emailed the URL in advance of the performance.
This event is interactive but we simply want everyone to have the opportunity to sing with the stars, to enjoy singing and to make music LIVE!
How to practice:
All the resources have been uploaded to Charanga, which is the Music website we use in school as part of our music curriculum. All pupils at Drake will receive details on how to log in and there is a video on our online learning page on what to do.
Once on Charanga, all of our pupils will be able to access the resources including lyrics, tutorials, dance videos and more!
We encourage all of our pupils to practice the songs, learn the dances via the instructional videos, and to learn to sign Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Mrs Booth will post weekly home learning activities on our online learning page.
