Joining our Voices in Song

Students and staff in the Music Departments across both the Junior and Senior Schools have been busy learning and recording this year’s song for the Voices Around The World 2017 project. This is the third year that St Christopher’s School has taken part in the International singing initiative.

Voices Around The World is a music project that involves singers in schools all around the world learning one song, recording it and being part of a final mix that features all voices. This year, students from across the whole school worked hard to learn ‘Sunshine’, a song written by the Music student, Max Lewin. Once again, we were lucky enough to have Mr Laurie Lewin, project founder and composer Max Lewin, in school to record and work with the students. He spent one day in the Senior School and one day in the Junior School. The students really enjoyed the recording process and commented on the fantastic experience. Other schools from around the world will also be submitting recordings over the next few months and Mr Laurie Lewin will begin merging the tracks into a single mix. The project includes singers from countries far and wide such as Australia, Argentina, the Caribbean, Canada, Nigeria, Botswana, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, China, Syria, Poland, Iceland, the UK, the US and many more! The single will be released online to raise money for St Mary’s School in Njombe, Tanzania. Watch this space…
