Pimlico Musical Foundation is running its first Summer School this August. This involves sessions for all our participants in the Pimlico Children’s Choir, Foundation Choir and Adult Chorus. Read on for more information:

PIMLICO CHILDREN’S CHOIR AND FOUNDATION SCHOLARS – live, daytime sessions in Pimlico

Current Government guidelines tell us we are not currently allowed to sing. We will be keeping an eye on this, and if singing is allowed in future, then the classes may include singing. For now, classes will involve a mixture of music performance (non-singing) and theory games, like body percussion etc, designed to be fun and educational.

  • It’s FREE of charge!
  • Weekly sessions on Tuesday afternoons (4, 11, 18, 21) and Friday afternoons (7, 14, 21, 28) in August
  • It’s on your doorstep in Pimlico (at St Gabriel’s Parish Halls)
  • It’s for children attending local Primary Schools
  • You don’t have to be able to attend every session to take part
  • Group numbers are limited, so apply ASAP
  • It’s fully risk-assessed for Covid-19*

DATES AND TIMES AND AGES are here

TO REGISTER fill in the form here!

*Group sizes will be kept small and the activities are fully risk-assessed and compliant with Department for Education and Public Health England guidance. Once enrolled on the Summer School, we shall send you our risk assessment and full details of what to expect. Please contact us if you have any further concerns.

How many cathedrals have you visited? The majestic Westminster Abbey? The ornate Gloucester? They are a picture of our national history, where kings and queens lie buried. But they also paint a picture of musical history, that great English choral tradition which we inherit today. Join Dan Gethin for a journey across the width and breadth of the country, from Canterbury to York, from Byrd to Walton, as he explores the history, the buildings, their music and their composers.
