Songscape at the Guildhall

On Monday 21st March some of our children joined hundreds of others from across Portsmouth when they performed the world premiere of Portsmouth Music Hub's new production Songscape at the Guildhall.

Songscape is a collection of favourite songs from the Music Hub's award winning series of songbooks. Designed to educate, inspire and entertain, the songbooks encourage children to get excited about music and to take to the stage.

The concert was packed with unforgettable performances as the children sang a wide range of songs, including Big Bang Planet, Moon Rock Boogie, Shark with a Heart and Portsmouth by the Sea.

Songscape was an unbeatable evening of music and entertainment created by local composers, performed by local children, in the heart of Portsmouth.

Our children had been practising for weeks and were so excited to wear their special Songscape t-shirts and represent Ark Dickens at this musical event.  Thank you to staff and parents who supported the children and congratulations to all who took part.
