Felsted School is inviting as many young performers as possible to join together in a multi-school virtual music video collaboration this summer term.
Children in Years 5 upwards are invited to come together virtually to perform Ben E King’s ‘Stand By Me’, either with their class or as individuals. The project is open to all and free to enter, aiming to provide the perfect opportunity for young musicians to collaborate.
Those wishing to be part of this exciting project should register their interest by 1 May 2021 here.
The expectation is that most performances will be vocal, but the Felsted School Music Department is also seeking budding instrumentalists who would like to play an instrumental piece. This can be arranged and the appropriate instrumental piece of music shared.
The pieces will need to be filmed by individuals or schools and shared with the Felsted Music Department via the Felsted Website to edit together to create an overall virtual collaboration.
Musical resources and instructions for submitting videos will then be shared as soon as possible. Head of Music at Felsted Prep, Mr Owen Rees will also be happy to answer any musical questions.
Music is a strong discipline at Felsted, with opportunities for musicians at all levels, starting with every pupil playing an instrument from the youngest years. Pupils performed exceptionally well in their latest music exams with many achieving distinctions up to Grade 8 and two pupils gaining an ARSM Diploma.
Felsted currently holds a unique partnership with Junior Guildhall, allowing talented musicians an integrated programme with the Felsted Music Department as well as the opportunity to study at a top conservatoire in London on Saturdays.
