Children in Cornwall celebrate the seasons through song

Cornwall Council News feed - Thu, 04/19/2018 - 17:12

Hundreds of children from across Cornwall have come together in the last few weeks to perform as part of the Cornwall Music Education Hub’s schools annual vocal programme, ‘Songfest’.   

This year was the largest Songfest to date with children from over seventy schools and colleges performing in nine different venues around Cornwall. 

The theme was ‘A Song for All Seasons’ which focused on folk songs of the South West, each song depicting a different month of the year. 

The folk songs were arranged by Devon-based songwriter and composer, Chris Hoban, who kindly gave permission for the songs to be performed at the events.  

Angela Renshaw, Vocal Strategy lead for Cornwall’s Music Education Hub said: “This year has been a real joy working with the teachers, pupils and musicians to create our interpretations of some of the most traditional of songs that are such an important part of our musical heritage.

“The children performed with great energy and purpose and it is fabulous to see that singing is alive and kicking in Cornwall's schools.“

The annual Songfest event has been created by Angela Renshaw and Patrick Bailey, the Hub’s Ensemble Lead for Mid and West Cornwall, as part of its commitment to support singing in schools.
