We are delighted to announce that The Big Sing, organised by Severn Arts and the University of Worcester, is back and will take place on Thursday 16 June 2022 at University of Worcester Arena.

The Big Sing is an interactive performance where key stage 2 pupils gather from across Worcestershire to sing prepared pieces as part of a huge singing workshop. It is an exciting and motivational opportunity for children and teachers alike to be part of a large-scale musical experience, led by world renowned singing leaders Ula Weber and Suzzi Vango, accompanied by a live band.

The theme for this year's event is 'Around the World'. Each song has been carefully chosen and will be used to improve vocal technique as well as providing an opportunity for links to the National Curriculum.

CPD for teachers

To support schools to prepare for the event, teachers are invited to take part in a CPD workshop on Tuesday 8 March 2022, 1.30-4.30pm.

The cost for the workshop is £30 per person.
