Summer Sing
20 June

Get ready for Summer Sing 2018 - featuring workshops by the lovely Nottingham Cathedral youth choir director Eleanor Martin and a combined performance by Nottingham city pupils and the fabulous Apollo5 on June 20!


Teacher CPD Event

The teacher CPD workshop will focus on vocal delivery for your class and choir. The workshop will be led by Nottingham Cathedral youth choir director, Eleanor Martin.

Where: College Street

When: Monday, May 14th. 3:30pm - 5:30pm

School Workshops

Eleanor Martin and Alex Patterson will be holding workshops in schools that have signed up for Summer Sing. Alex Patterson is the Director of Music at Nottingham Cathedral and leads many community singing groups in the region, including Nottingham Youth Voices.

The workshop is a great opportunity for children to work with Eleanor & Alex, learn some new skills and practice singing. These workshops are essential in helping pupils get the most out of Summer Sing.

Summer Sing Concert

The Summer Sing concert will feature a performance by the children led by Alex, as well as a joint massed workshop and performance with the critically acclaimed vocal group, Apollo 5. The exciting event will be held at Nottingham Albert Hall on Wednesday, June 20. There will be two performances: 9:30am – 11:30am and 1:00pm – 3:00pm. We can't wait to see Nottingham's pupils sing together!

Summer Sing

Summer Sing is an annual concert organised by Nottingham Music Service. In 2017, we organised workshops by Apollo5, an international award-winning British vocal quintet. The event was a great success with more than 600 city pupils attending, participating in the workshop and later performing along with Apollo5 for an audience of family and friends.

I just wanted to say on behalf of my school, thank you for such an amazing experience. Our students and staff will take away many memories from this year's Summer Sing!
