The event, organised by the council’s Music Service and supported by the MK Music Hub, includes a mass singing festival for pupils in the daytime, followed by a performance for families and other invited guests in the evenings. Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Brian White will attend on the final evening.

The evening concert will involve performances from a choir made up from 150 Key Stage Two students from Broughton Fields Primary School, Rickley Park Primary School, Bushfield School, Christ The Sower Primary School and Summerfield Primary School. There will also be performances from Key Stage Two strings players and Year Four class groups, known as Playing Together 1, recorders, keyboard and world percussion. The Music Centre Rock School and Wind Quintets will provide music in the foyer ahead of the concert starting.

David Rose from the Music Service, said: “We have been bringing this exciting event to primary school pupils across Milton Keynes for over 20 years now. Pupils have been rehearsing the repertoire for the festival in their class music lessons since January and it’s set to be a great event both for the pupils and our audience.”
