Concert Synopsis

Join us as we take you from the bottom of the sea to somewhere over the rainbow for Our Fragile Planet, our Vocalise! summer concert. Vocalise! Is our music education community engagement scheme in which we share the joy of singing with children across London in our singing workshops – in the 2021/22 season, we’ve had the pleasure of doing this with three different schools. This year our programme is centred around our planet, and the individual as well as communal responsibility we all have in looking after the environment. It’s also HM the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, and this theme is one that is particularly close to her heart.

For this concert we are excited to bring over 200 children and members of The Bach Choir together in song to perform familiar and new tunes alike. David Hill has conducted for some of the world’s finest ensembles, but he only conducts a choir like this one once a year. Join us to celebrate the work of all involved.

Seating will be allocated on the day, so please arrive with the party that you wish to sit with.

Please note that every child taking part in this concert is entitled to two free tickets which can be used by their parents, carers or family. If you are the parent or carer of a child who is performing, your child’s school will have sent you a promo code which you can use on our website to redeem your two free tickets. Please enter this into the promo code box before you check out, and put your child’s name in. We will be checking this, and any tickets that don’t match up will not be valid for this event.
