Jubilee Community Singing Day at Calstock Arts
June 4 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm| Free
Calstock Arts is thrilled to be hosting a free and open to all ages BIG COMMUNITY SINGING DAY on Saturday 4th June, as part of the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend celebrations. The singing will be led by Helen Porter, director of Calstock’s Big Jazz Choir.
4 June @ 10am: Jubilee Big Community Sing Session
Pop in for a morning workshop with Helen and learn some of the very best songs of 1952. The pop charts began in 1952, and the first edition of NME was produced. Musical films such as ‘Singing In The Rain’ were having huge success, and some great and memorable songs were written or released in this year. Revisiting the musical landscape of 1952 will be a really enjoyable way of commemorating the song-writers and performers of the day, and of the Queen and coronation itself. We hope very much you’ll join in this uplifting day of community singing.
4 June @1630: Jubilee Big Community Sing Concert
Join local musicians and singers in a showcase concert to celebrate the Jubilee weekend. With Mal Walmsley on guitar, Matt Taylor on base and Tony Ives on drums, this specially arranged concert celebrates the uplifting music of 1952 and the coronation. We’ll be revelling in the hit music of 1952, and singing will be led by Helen Porter, director of Calstock’s Big Jazz Choir.
