Event Details

This event finished on 07 February 2018

CASMA (Central Area Schools’ Music Association) is an annual festival that brings primary school pupils together to sing. For the 30th anniversary of CASMA performances, mass choirs of KS2 pupils from across the county come together to collaborate in an exciting, specially commissioned musical work representing the 6 South Asian seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Monsoon & Harvest. Some of the music is in English and some of the music is in other languages including Tamil and Bengali. It fuses Western music with traditional Indian songs through to Bollywood style, with influences from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

Leading up to the performances, the children will have worked with critically acclaimed Bengali singer Sohini Alam, her band Khiyo with composer and arranger Oliver Weeks, and conducted by The Come and Sing Company.
