The project is for children in Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) . Up to 250 children from 3-7 schools take part in the project, each receiving up to 12 x 1-hour weekly workshops which integrate rehearsals. During each workshop, we use the story to talk about challenges we sometimes face and enjoy games, exercises, and singing rehearsals.
The children all come together for a performance of Stardust with six soloists, narrator, and orchestration for a 12-piece band plus piano. The performance of Stardust is a life changing one for many of the children; a real confidence booster and an opportunity for them to find their voices.
