Virtual Schools' Prom Activity Pack
Tuesday, 23 June 2020
Pupils from 11 local schools have been invited to take part in this year’s Schools’ Prom which will be delivered online. Will Dollard and Neil Pardoe will guide pupils, through YouTube and an online activity pack, to learn two lively and entertaining songs, especially commissioned by the DaCapo Music Foundation’s Tracey Mathias, Louis D’Heudieres and John Ashton Thomas.
The children’s singing will be accompanied by violin, double bass, flute, horn, trumpet and percussion, using musicians from the wonderful Fantasia Orchestra filming from home. The project will include vocal work, body percussion and even some art. Pupils will send in recordings, films and pictures and a final Vimeo will be made for the end of the summer.
We look forward to sharing the final piece with our Proms’ audience through the website. While our Schools’ Prom is organised through a group of schools we welcome individuals too! Being virtual allows any school-going young person to participate.
The Primary film is most suitable for Years 3-6 and the Secondary for Years 7-10.
