#HearHull at the Royal Albert Hall

This term the Music Service is offering all secondary school students and staff the once in a life-time opportunity to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London. On Wednesday the 15th November hundreds of children from across the city will come together to form a massed ensemble called ‘#Hear Hull‘ to take part in the Music for Youth National Schools Proms.

We will be performing a new work created for the occasion by composer and Music Service teacher Dr. Tom Lawrence entitled ‘Swerving East‘ which sets some of the poetry of Philip Larkin evoking the character of the city and its people.

Rehearsals are taking place on Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th & Thursday 19th October in secondary schools for pupils to learn the songs Swerving East and Shine the Light Bright with our guest conductor Sam Dunkley.   

ALL INSTRUMENTAL PLAYERS MUST ATTEND the massed rehearsal in the CITY HALL on SUNDAY 12th NOVEMBER (11.00am – 12.30pm & 1.00pm – 3.30pm), and there is another massed rehearsal for instrumental players on FRIDAY 10th NOVEMBER (7.00pm – 8.15pm) at  the ALBEMARLE MUSIC CENTRE.   Please note that if for any reason you have not been able to attend any of the massed rehearsals (Friday 13th October, Friday 10th November or Sunday 12th November), you will not be expected to play your instrument in the performance – but can still sing!

SINGERS – please note that Singers should arrive at the City Hall by 12.30 pm on SUNDAY 12th NOVEMBER to get seated and warmed up for a prompt start at 1.o0 pm.  The rehearsal will finish at 3.30 pm.
