Partnership programme


Surrey Get Vocal!

Contact person:
Hayley Adams

This is a singing outreach programme designed by Guildford Cathedral which aims to share their passion for singing and music with the wider schools’ community through weekly singing workshops and performances for Year 5 pupils, delivered by experienced vocal leaders. Currently there are funds to deliver workshops in up to five local primary schools each year.

It aims to teach an enjoyment of singing together with best use of the voice, opportunities for group singing and inspiration for composition of music to children. The year-long programme of musical outreach includes:

  • vocal animateur sessions leading to an ‘in school’ performance in term 1
  • an acoustic compositional challenge in Guildford Cathedral in term 2 linked to the National Curriculum science syllabus
  • full choral concert in Guildford Cathedral together with members of Guildford Cathedral Choir in term 3

Staff of the schools visited may also be offered a wrap-up session aimed at sustaining the achievements of the programme beyond its duration and at encouraging confidence to promote singing in the classroom.
