Pupils on song for musical celebration in Queen Square

Hundreds of pupils from across Wolverhampton are tuning up for a spectacular musical performance in Queen Square on Tuesday (12 June, 2018).

Around 300 children from 12 primary and special schools will be taking part in the annual concert - now in its third year - and performing songs in a wide range of styles and traditions.

The performance marks the culmination of a 6 month project organised and delivered by Wolverhampton Music Service and Wolverhampton Music Education Hub. It saw teachers from schools around Wolverhampton take part in regular workshops at the Music Service where they learned songs which they could subsequently teach in their own schools.

The concert takes place from 11.30am to 12.30pm and pupils will be joined by a band from the Music Service and led by Paul Wilcox from the Music Education Hub.

Councillor Lynne Moran, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "Music is an important part of a young person's education, and our Music Service provides quality teaching for children and young people across Wolverhampton.

"This is an excellent opportunity for the pupils to show off their talents, and I am sure they will put on a fantastic show which will make their parents and teachers incredibly proud. I'd encourage as many people as possible to come along and cheer them on."

Wolverhampton Music Service provides tuition and musical opportunities for youngsters from schools across the city, including the chance to perform with its flagship groups, Wolverhampton Youth Orchestra and Wolverhampton Youth Wind Orchestra.
