TWO free concerts for 1,500 Cheshire primary school children, aged 4-11, will take place at on Tuesday, October 7 at Chester Cathedral.
Music for Youth, the national charity that provides access to educational and performance opportunities for young musicians, and Halifax, the building society, have joined forces to organise the events.
The Primary Proms are all about inspiring the next generation of music-makers and provide an opportunity for school children to experience live music as well as performing themselves as part of an audience song which will involve all of the children.
The musical treats are introduced to the young audience by Shirley Court, the lead vocal animateur for Cheshire Education Music in Partnership and director of the Cheshire Youth Choir and Crewe Young Singers.
“To experience the thrill of seeing music come alive in one of your local landmark venues is a great opportunity,” said Lincoln Abbotts, chief executive at Music for Youth.
“The Primary Proms are a magical combination of young people on stage performing for young people in the audience, and we hope this concert sparks their enthusiasm for music and inspires them to explore it further.”
The doors of the Cathedral open at 10.30am to admit the first audience of 750 primary school children from across Cheshire.
