One of the hardest tasks for the Music Team each year is endeavouring to select an overall theme and suitable songs for the Massed Choirs to sing.
Songs selected have to meet at least most of the following criteria:
- Suitable theme and content for Years 5 – 8
- Suitable vocal range
- Fit the objective of the Festival to provide a wide range of genre
- Copyright and performance rights are available at a reasonable cost
It is the task of the Festival Music team to sort out a well-balanced programme with songs that fit the above criteria, but we would welcome suggestions as to songs that they should consider when doing so.
We also welcome suggestions for an over-arching theme for the festival. The theme provides a link and organising instrument that can help give the festival a focus.
Be aware that the programme for each festival is finalised in November of the preceding year, so any suggestion provided is, if accepted, almost certainly not going to make an appearance in the Festival until the one after the next to be performed!
We welcome any suggestions of themes and/or songs for the Massed Choirs to perform! Just complete the following online form.
