Lots of singing fun had this summer!

This summer we’ve enjoyed lots of music, as schools from across Doncaster gathered together to sing at massed choir events!

The events were organised by Doncaster Music Service and darts (Doncaster Community Arts), working as partners in Doncaster Music Education Hub.

On 12 and 13 June we had Sing Out 2019. Primary schools got together to sing songs they’d written themselves as well as popular hits at Doncaster Dome.

From Baby Shark to the Spice Girls, children and young people from across Doncaster performed an exciting range of music and gave Doncaster Dome a night to remember!

Sing Out is so popular that it had to be split across two evenings in order to fit all the audience into the Dome’s auditorium!

On 17 June, it was Sing + Sign 2019. Doncaster’s Special Schools came together at Doncaster College to sing original songs which they signed using Makaton.

There was such an incredible atmosphere at the event as pupils took families on a wonderful musical journey around the world – from France to Africa, and even the North Pole!

The success of the events is a real testament to the work that goes into them, from darts’ musician Janet going out to schools to deliver songwriting workshops with them, to the Music Hub Band playing the songs live with the pupils, to the support of venues and volunteers.

We appreciate everybody’s help in putting these events on, and we can’t wait to hear next year’s songs!
