As November nears, and projects are well underway we have decided to give some examples of the types of activity going on as part of the Friday Afternoons project this year in a series of 'Close-Ups'.
Name of Project: Little Britten
Name of Group: Cambridgeshire Music Singing Team
Date: 9th November 2015
Venue: Cambridge Corn Exchange
16 schools from the Cambridgeshire area will join together for a concert at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge to be part of the Friday Afternoons project. The repertoire for this concert will include works from the Friday Afternoons Project (2013/2014), The Bird Song (Nico Muhly 2015), and pieces from Britten’s extensive catalogue written specifically for children’s voices.
Students will have the opportunity to learn some of his most well-known pieces with their own music teacher / choir leader and then share this with singers from across the region in a joint choral performance at the Corn Exchange on Monday 9th November, 2-3pm.
