Our singing initiative which brings together KS3 singing groups from secondary schools across Tower Hamlets.

Each year, over 100 secondary school students come together for massed singing sessions to learn and sing songs for a public performance at Spitalfields Market, led by experienced vocal leaders Jessie Maryon Davies and Patrick Barrett.

The project raises musical aspirations through inspirational singing, creates and strengthens relationships between participating schools and increases pupils’ engagement and enjoyment in singing.

Get in touch with Gail if you are a new school wishing to join the project.
