More than 1,800 children from across Berkshire take to the stage for a sensational celebration of music and song organised by music education charity Berkshire Maestros and including performances from Berkshire County Youth Choirs and Berkshire Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Massed primary school choirs perform songs from Nigel Hess’ musical RATS! – an alternative look at the Pied Piper of Hamlyn. With special permission from the family of the late Johnny Dankworth the choirs perform one of his masterful pieces, under the title Further Experiments with Mice.
Other highlights include popular movie favourites such as Beauty and the Beast, The Incredibles, The Mission and James Bond. The event culminates in a performance of John Rutter’s Feel the Spirit by the massed secondary school choirs, featuring soloist Rebecca Lodge.
