The Jackdaws Big Sing!

On Wednesday 5 June over 300 children filled St John’s Church in Frome with song!

As part of the Jackdaws “Big Sing” project, led by Caroline Radcliffe and Steph Douglas, four schools came together to perform and share the songs that they’d learnt.

Caroline and Steph initially met the teachers from Christ Church, Beckington, St John’s and Chewton Mendip schools at Jackdaws for two Training Sessions, the teachers then taught the songs to the children at their schools, with their renewed confidence and enthusiasm! Finally, everyone met for the “Big Sing”, guided by Caroline and Steph, singing songs from around the World in parts, rounds and harmonies, filling the space with sound. It was a marvellous morning of music!

The next Big Sing will be Wednesday 17th July 10am, St John’s Church Frome.
