The Virtual Big Sing 2020

Pupils and families from across the country are invited take part in our Virtual Big Sing 2020!

Following the success of our partnership with Norfolk Music Hub and the Big Sing in 2018 and our first ‘Virtual’ Big Sing alongside them in 2019, NYMAZ have partnered once again with the Norfolk Music Hub and also Charanga,  and artist Rebecca Osborne to bring an interactive, digital concert to every young person in the country.

Norfolk Music Hub have selected a list of songs and online resources for families and school groups of all ages to rehearse using Charanga, and everyone is invited to tune in and join us for the exciting live event. Resources will be available from Monday 18 May.

Norfolk Music Hub has enlisted a little help from some well-known friends to help you find your voice!

Their Music Maestro

The vocal leader for this event will be Mark De-Lisser and he will be assisted by some fabulous celebrity singers! You may remember Mark De-Lisser from the Big Sing in 2018. Mark also arranged Ben E King’s performance of Stand By Me for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, as well as performing in the choir on the day.
