Children from across Romney March will be performing with professional musicians in a family concert at the Marsh Academy, New Romney, at 2pm on Friday July 10.
Supported by Soundhub, the music education hub for Kent, children at four primary schools have been learning songs as part of Singing Playgrounds – a three-year education project run by the John Armitage Memorial (JAM) and the classical singing ensemble Ex Cathedra.
This concert marks the end of the second year of the project in which professional musicians have been helping to improve and develop singing at Hythe Bay, Palmarsh, Dymchurch and Greatstone primary schools.
As well as the children performing songs learned as part of the Singing Playgrounds project, they will also give the world premiere of a new work from Timothy Jackson, commissioned for them by JAM and the brass quintet Onyx Brass and conducted by Ula Weber.
The concert is part of JAM on the Marsh, a vibrant multi arts festival of free and ticketed events from July 9 to 19.
