In Harmony Newcastle Gateshead is 10!
Join us for a day of festivities as we celebrate 10 years of In Harmony Newcastle Gateshead.
Artist in Residence Beccy Owen will introduce performances from ensembles including every child involved with In Harmony. The event will conclude with a world premiere of Beccy’s new song, commissioned by Sage Gateshead and co-created with the young people.
Also as part of each performance, a 10th Birthday commemorative film directed by the young people will be premiered. The pupils have been working with local filmmakers Second Draft over the last year, documenting their musical activities and giving interviews to camera.
Expect confetti on the biggest day of this 10th anniversary festival!
Jane Dube, Head Teacher at Hawthorn Primary School said:
“At Hawthorn, we can’t wait for the 10th Birthday celebrations. The children have worked so hard to prepare and everyone is really looking forward to being back playing at Sage Gateshead as well as in our local community. It makes me feel so proud when I hear the children play”
