Clay Cross and District Music Festival 2017.
Children in KS2 in September have the wonderful opportunity to take part in the Clay Cross & District Music Festival, working with children from the local cluster of schools performing as a choir in a fantastic venue. Rachel Wilkes from the School Music Partnership is leading rehearsals and each school in the festival is contributing and subsidising the cost of the event. Some money is raised through ticket sales and raffle. (Details for tickets nearer the time – last year tickets were £3.50 each). There is no charge for children for to take part.
There will be rehearsals during school time at local schools and commitment to the day rehearsal at the Winding Wheel, Chesterfield. Click here for a list of dates and venues: Clay Cross and District Music Festival dates 2017 Parents will need to be able to arrange transport to and from rehearsals. We hope some of you may be able to arrange car sharing. Parents will also need to be able to arrange transport to and from the rehearsals at Tupton Hall and the Winding Wheel.
We do hope your child will take advantage of this opportunity and support our school by joining in. Our school often receives comments about the wonderful singing voices and musical talent of the children.
