Summer Sing 2019 is right around the corner! Our annual singing event is on June 13, 2019 at the Albert Hall. Bookings are now open! We're delighted that the critically acclaimed professional voice artists, Apollo5 will be leading the event this year.
Summer Sing 2019
This year Summer Sing will take place on June 13, 2019 at the beautiful Albert Hall. We will be running two sessions: Morning (9:30 am - 11:30 am) and Afternoon (1:00 pm - 3:00 pm).
The event will consist of a joint massed workshop and performance with the critically acclaimed professional voice artists, Apollo5.
During the last half an hour of the session, family and friends will be invited to attend the performance. We will ask schools to confirm how many parents will be attending closer to the event date.
Resourses for all songs will be made available upon sign up to the event
CPD on Vocal Delivery
A CPD event for teachers of all schools that sign up for Summer Sing will be held on May 13, 2019. The workshop will be on vocal delivery for your class and will be led by members from Apollo5. The workshop is scheduled at College Street Centre, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
This year’s workshop for children will be incorporated as part of the Summer Sing event on the day, so we encourage schools to attend the CPD event and practice the songs with their pupils in the lead up to the event. This way the children will be able to enjoy Summer Sing more and participate more fully.
This event is FREE for schools who buy NMS instrumental services and is available to other schools for £150. This cost is inclusive of all the above workshops and performances.
To book a place for you and your school choir on these popular events, please complete the online form and submit it by Friday, May 3.
Summer Sing Concert 2018
Summer Sing 2018 was fantastic! Workshops by the lovely Nottingham Cathedral youth choir director Ellie Martin and music director Alex Patterson were followed by a brilliant combined performance by Nottingham city pupils and the fabulous Apollo5 on June 20. Nearly 500 Nottingham City pupils from 20 primary schools in Nottingham attended Summer Sing 2018. Children were absolutely thrilled to be in Albert Hall, and for many of them it was their first time at such a wonderful concert venue. The interactive concert featured not just a performance by the internationally acclaimed Apollo5 but a workshop as well, and opportunities for the children to sing together with the vocal quintet.
Apollo5 were full of energy and the children left humming songs from the day!
Wow what a treat! We had an amazing time at the Summer Sing. The professional singers, Apollo5 were amazing. The children left buzzing!”

Summer Sing is an annual event, including workshops and a main concert, organised by Nottingham Music Service to celebrate and encourage singing in the city. The programme is spread over several weeks and schools can sign up for support workshops. We also share resources with schools to help them carry on practicing in their own time! All the efforts come together at the final concert, generally held at the beautiful Albert Hall, Nottingham.
