Summer Singing School @ Crooked Spire

Chesterfield Parish Church is running a Singing Summer School for young people aged 7-11 from 25 to 27 July.

Each day starts at 9.30am and ends at 3.30pm. 

All boys and girls aged between seven and eleven are welcome and there is no requirement to have any prior singing or music-making experience.

Drinks will be available throughout each day, but all participating children should bring a packed lunch. 

The Summer School costs £30 for the three days for one child. Each additional child costs £20. 

The church's professional music staff will tailor the tuition to meet the needs of different ages and abilities, through a programme of fun and engaging coaching.

The group singing sessions will be interspersed with an exciting programme of fun social activities, such as a bell ringing workshop and a treasure hunt. 

The course will conclude with a short performance for parents, friends and supporters. This will be followed by refreshments for everyone. 

Singing has been a big part of what happens at the Crooked Spire for centuries.

The church maintains excellent boys' and girls' choirs, trained by professional musicians, who coach the young people to perform at high standards. 

In addition to providing music at the church's choral services, the choirs provide outstanding educational and social opportunities to local young people.

After the summer school, participants have the option of joining one of the church's regular choirs, but there's no obligation to join the full-time choir.

The purpose of the course is to give the young people an insight into singing, build their confidence and have fun along the way.   

If your child is interested in the Summer School, please phone 01246 206506 to make a booking. If you have any questions about the Summer School, please get in touch: contact@crookedspire.org
