IPC Schools around the world get singing for worldwide recording
The children at the British School of Chicago in the USA and at Grazebrook Primary School in London, England, as well as those at many IPC member schools around the world are busy rehearsing in preparation for a recording that will involve children from across the globe.
They are taking part in the Voices around the World project which is aiming to get young people all over the world to learn and participate in a global recording of a song called Building Our Own Future. The song has been written by British singer/songwriter Howard Jones. Their voices will be included in a mass world-wide recording which will be released as a single in December.
Teacher Rachel White-Hunt at the British School of Chicago says “The children are learning about simple chords on the guitar and bass so they love playing along to the backing as well. In total, we will record about 200 students here at BSC. We are all enjoying singing it and can’t wait to submit our recording.” And at Grazebrook Primary School in London where rehearsals are in full swing, Headteacher Michelle Thomas says “We love a good sing song, and being part of a global recording is incredibly exciting for us all. It’s a thrilling collaboration and we can’t wait to hear the mass recording knowing that we’re a part of it.”
Schools the world over are welcome to participate in the project. Vocals, choir parts and backing music is all available free of charge and easily accessible on the Voices Around the World website page at www.wave7music.co.uk . The International Primary Curriculum is encouraging as many member schools as possible to participate. Organiser Laurie Lewin says “It’s a collaborative project on a global scale aimed at linking the voices of young people everywhere.”
Recordings of Building Our Own Future by schools and choirs need to be submitted by 18th July. You can listen to a version of the song and find out more information on the Voices Around the World website page at http://www.wave7music.co.uk or at www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWnnHj8OgPY.
