Virtual Big Sing logo

Pupils and families from across the country are invited take part in our Virtual Big Sing 2021!

Following the success of last year’s event, #VBS2021 promises to be bigger and better with artists from across the globe encouraging everyone to sing loud and proud. This year we will be streaming from the famous Abbey Road Studios and feature live Q&A sessions with each artist along with some special guests. We have again partnered with Charanga, NYMAZ and this year welcome Music For Youth and Viking Sound and Lighting to bring an interactive, digital concert to every young person in the country.

We have selected a fantastic arrangement of songs and everyone is invited to tune-in and join us for two exciting live events:

VBS2021 Secondary: 11.00am Thursday 1st July 2021
VBS2021 Primary: 1.30pm Thursday 1st July 2021

The VBS2021 resources will be live on Charanga, from 12th April 2021 and feature a full range of musical and interactive activities.

Our Music Maestro

We are delighted to announce that our vocal leader for this event again is Mark De-Lisser and he will be assisted by some well-known celebrity singers! You may remember Mark De-Lisser from our Big Sing in 2018 and our Virtual Big Sing 2020. Mark also arranged Ben E King’s performance of Stand By Me for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, as well as performing in the choir on the day. Mark is also the vocal coach for The Masked Singer where he works with each of the celebrities.
