Cambridgeshire’s Virtual Celebration
Cambridgeshire Music Partnership invites you to join a Huge Countywide Singing Project in your own school
‘Friday Afternoons’ is gathering momentum and more organisations are getting involved as we approach Britten’s Big Birthday Sing – the climax of a year of events to celebrate the centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth, on Friday 22 November 2013.
“I believe that an artist should be part of his community, should work for it, with it and be used by it…”
Benjamin Britten, 1968
There will be a large scale workshop and concert in Cambridge Corn Exchange on Friday 22nd November 2013 as part of Cambridge Music Festival, conducted by Lyn Alcántara, professional singer, conductor and singing teacher. Every school in Cambridgeshire is encouraged to take part and access the concert through this discrete website. The concert will be broadcast the concert live, and streamed straight to your school enabling you to sing the songs as part of Cambridge Music Festival. This one-off celebration of Benjamin Britten’s piece could make every school in Cambridgeshire a Singing School.
