About 2012 Concert


Throngs of singers and instrumentalists will present two landmark concerts from 7pm on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th February at the Palace Theatre, London Road, Westcliff.
The performers include secondary and primary pupils from around 20 schools, and groups such as South Essex Youth Symphony Orchestra, Southend Girls Choir and the Original Woodwind Ensemble.  
This event, called Southend Makes Music, was the brainchild of Southend's Director of Music Services, Ros Pitcher, who also teaches at Southend High School for Girls.  
She challenged primary schoolchildren to devise lyrics based on the idea of - 'the future beginning with S'.   
As a result, youngsters - some as young as seven - from Friars Primary School, Shoebury; St Marys Church of England Primary School, Southend; and Eastwood Primary School, Leigh, leaped into creative action.  
Their words were set to music by local composers including Ros herself, as well as Andrew Palmer - the Head Teacher of Heycroft Primary School; Tracey Jennings, the Music coordinator from Eastwood Primary; Gerald Usher, who was previously Head of Essex Music Services; and Eric Withams, whose son, Andrew, is Music Coordinator from St Mary's Church of England Primary School.
The secondary schools involved in the performances are Westcliff High School for Boys, Westcliff High School for Girls, The Eastwood School, Chase High School, Cecil Jones College, Shoeburyness High School, Southend High School for Girls, and Belfairs High School, Leigh.
