Kids’ Choir is a Year 5 singing project which builds upon the highly successful model developed by the Mayor’s Thames Festival since 2003, aimed at increasing and supporting singing in schools. Since 2003, 5,678 children have taken part in Kids' Choir.
Led by Music Director Richard Frostick, the project will develop a high quality choral performance with 700 children from 9 London boroughs – Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth. A full list of participating schools is below.
Via 'Kids' Choir', these children will get an unrivalled opportunity to broaden their musical horizons by working with a world class composer and being exposed, often for the first time, to the richness and complexity of a specially created choral piece. They will experience the joys of singing and performing in a group and will develop broader key skills such as self-confidence and team-work.
