A Primary Schools singing programme aimed at increasing and supporting the joys and benefits of singing.  Kids’ Choir provides children with the opportunity to develop key skills including self confidence, self-expression and group work.

Led by the renowned choral workshop leader and conductor, Richard Frostick each year we work with 450 children in Years 5 and 6 (Key Stage 2) from twenty-nine schools across eight London boroughs where music provision and engagement has historically been low. 

The Kids’ Choir programme provides Music teachers with a catalogue of music to enhance provision in schools and the opportunity to work and rehearse with other schools for an outdoor large-scale mass choral performance along the River Thames as part of Totally Thames in September.

Since its inception in 2003, the project has engaged over 9,500 pupils across London and entertained audiences through the joy of singing, giving children an unrivaled opportunity to broaden their musical horizons. 

  • “Our children have gained many skills from this project: commitment, team work, confidence and self-belief”
    Zena Jacobson, Malmesbury Primary School
  • “We thoroughly enjoy it each year and look forward to it!”
    Sian Palmer, Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School
  • “Singing is the superfood of education. It feeds every part of us - physical, mental and spiritual - with a rich cocktail of nutrients.”
    Richard Frostick, Kids' Choir Conductor
