Schools hit the right notes at Resonate’s 6th annual iSing

More than 1,500 pupils performed at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall for Resonate’s 6th annual iSing.

Participants from 35 schools took part in a special tribute to the Beatle’s Sgt Pepper album before coming together for a spectacular concert in which children sang with a live band and special guest performers.

Participating schools included St Cuthbert’s Primary, Pleasant Street, St Patricks, Anfield Primary, St Sebastian’s, Whitefield Primary, Rudston Primary, St Anne’s, St Nicholas CP, Heygreen, Mab Lane, Northcote Primary and Blessed Sacrament CP.

Resonate, Liverpool’s music hub is enjoying a week of celebrations as the end of summer term nears with highlights featuring some spectacular singing performances from the city’s schools.

Earlier in the week, St. Georges Hall was packed for a ‘Let’s Play’ performance in conjunction with In Harmony, the initiative from the Philharmonic that uses music to enthuse and motivate children, families and communities.

Head of service at Resonate, Jonathan Dickson said: “Every year at i-Sing, we bring together hundreds of school children and their teachers from 35 schools to celebrate the amazing singing talent that exists in schools across our wonderful city.

“This year the young people spent the morning rehearsing songs including a special tribute to the 50th birthday of the Beatles Sgt Pepper’s album. In the afternoon, their exciting day culminated in a spectacular concert, in which the children sang with a live band and special guest performances. Let’s Play received the same rapturous reception and what a great way to end the year!”

Further events are planned before schools depart for the summer holidays including a Resonate Youth weekend in Colomendy and Resonate Youth performing a special concert at the Philharmonic.
