inter-School Choir Awards

What is it?

The Inter-School Choir Awards was to have piloted in Enfield in 2020 but was postponed as a result of Covid-19. RWF representatives will audition students to form a number of school choirs and work closely with them to produce a showstopping performance. The schools would then compete against each other in a live show in a professional theatre. Whilst we have no firm plans for this project in the future it is one, we wish to pursue in the future and would welcome expressions of interest.

Who’s it for?

School students from across the country, aged 11 to 18 can take part through by responding to an open call for submissions. They might be referred by their teachers or decide to reach out themselves. Students need not be part of an existing singing group or choir- we are just looking for young people who want to give it a go and take part in something wonderful.

Benefits

What’s not to love about singing together? There’s a wealth of research that proves the link between of singing and mental health and wellbeing: it boosts self-esteem and confidence, relieves stress and tension, and singing together creates a strong sense of community and social inclusion. Becoming a member of a choir at a young age can develop positive skills and habits that will improve your life over the long term.

The 2021 Launch

Who could ever have imagined that singing together would have to be put on hold! We fully expect that we will reach a point in 2021 when a relaxation in the Covid-19 restrictions enables young people’s choirs to perform to the public- even if that has to be outdoors at a distance. Being able to come together in song will be a powerful symbol of young people’s creativity and resilience. It will show the world that they have pulled together to overcome the effects of the pandemic, and we can’t wait to see it!
