Lambeth Primary Sing, RFH, Southbank Centre.

Lamberth Primary Sing participants

We are delighted and proud to continue our partnership with Lambeth Music Service, The Primary Singing Events at Southbank Centre in March were a fantastic success. Teachers and parents were thrilled about the quality of singing achieved, the choice of repertoire and the diversity of the team leading. Thanks to the vision of Bryan Welton, the Director of LMS, Living Song was invited to collaborate for repertoire selection and teacher trainings. The Director of Living Song, Jane Wheeler and two Young Artists, as well as Guest Artist Randolph Matthews were involved in the teacher trainings, sharing skills, teaching the songs and offering bespoke feedback as requested by participants. On the performance day 1600 children took part across two concerts, both to full houses of over 2000 audiences made up of friends and families. Living Song Young Artists Harine and Lillian worked hard all day back stage, making sure children and schools were in the right place at the right time. A Huge operation! Young Artists Richie and Gabrielle supported a number of pieces of music as second conductors, but also conducted pieces on their own. The ‘live’ band provided by LMS added the icing on the cake, together with beautiful, singable arrangements by Bryan Welton. Teachers said that of the five annual events they had participated in at Southbank Centre, this was the best! Team work!
