CREATE WITH CAMERATA 2020

04.10.2019

Due to the success of this project in the last two years, we are once again recruiting primary schools to take part in our Staffordshire schools’ song-writing project, Create with Camerata, in partnership with Stafford Music Service.

The year 2020 will be the 80th Anniversary of the film Fantasia being released, and with the film’s focus on famous pieces of orchestral music and the use of mixed media, we have decided to use this film as the basis for the project theme. Each KS2 primary school class that gets involved with the project will receive a half-day workshop in their school from a Camerata composer and musician where they will write a song based on an excerpt of music from the film Fantasia, exploring the story it tells, the instruments used, and the way it sounds, which they will then perform at a concert alongside 23 other classes at Stafford County Showground in March.

Teachers of the classes involved in the project will also receive a teaching resource and a CPD session in November to help them prepare their classes for their workshop in early 2020.

If your school is based in the county of Staffordshire and you would like more information on this project, please do not hesitate to get in touch:
