Clacton’s Princes Theatre is preparing to host music from all over the world next week.
Almost 300 children from eleven primary schools in Tendring will come together to sing music from the mountains of Nepal to the deserts of the Middle East, from the valleys of Wales and the highlands of Scotland to the sun kissed islands of the Caribbean - the songs will represent many nations and exotic locations.
The children will be singing all of the songs in the original languages of their countries of origin, including Welsh, Arabic, Swahili and Nepalese.
Choirmaster Peter Thorne said the concert had been a huge undertaking.
“The children have risen to this challenge and responded magnificently to produce an exciting and varied concert to entertain and delight.”
Tanya Ferguson, Tendring District Council’s (TDC) Cabinet Member for Tourism and Culture said she was delighted the Princes Theatre was once again hosting the concert.
“This is a great opportunity for TDC, Tendring schools and the Essex Music Education Hub to join forces to bring local children to a professional stage.
“All the staff and children have worked so hard to make this event very special and I’m sure it will be enjoyed by all.”
The concert is supported by the Essex Music Education Hub and the schools taking part are: Alton Park Junior, Holland Haven Primary, Great Clacton Church of England Junior, St Osyth Church of England Primary, St Claire’s Roman Catholic Primary, Mistley Norman Church of England Primary, Whitehall Academy, Burrsville Infant Academy, Rolph Church of England Primary, Cann Hall Primary and Holland Park.
Tickets are £5.00 each or 4 for £15 and are on sale now online at www.princestheatre.co.uk or in the Town Hall Box Office.
