March will see us hold our KS1 singing festival for Coventry Primary Schools - a magical, musical exploration through nature and our animal kingdom.

New for 2024 is the FREE Coventry Schools’ Creature Cantata II with music composed by Kevin Stannard (Coventry Music Engagement Officer) and words written by Rebecca Thompson (St Mary’s the Mount School, Walsall). 

The 10-song cantata is a magical, musical exploration through nature and our animal kingdom.
