Following the success of last year’s Secondary Singing Event with Mark De Lisser ("Our Dementia Choir” with Vicky McClure)
the ArtForms music team were delighted to invite local Craig Lees
to work with over 130 students form 11 secondary schools from across Leeds to their Secondary Singing Event at Pudsey Civic Hall on Tuesday 30th April.
Students were put through their vocal paces, learning songs by James Bay and Beyoncé in four part-harmony. This was an amazing experience for the students, and many were genuinely surprised by the power and quality of the sound they were able to produce in such a short time working with Craig.
The event was organised by Paula Brookes and Fran Hannan from ArtForms
(Music) – the lead organisation for the Leeds Music Education Partnership
. LMEP delivers a coordinated music offer in response to the National Plan for Music Education which includes ensuring that every pupil sings regularly and that choirs and other vocal ensembles are available in the area.
