Strictly Come Dancing vocalist brings harmony with Singsation!

Strictly Come Dancing vocalist brings harmony with Singsation!

Over 200 Year 5 and Year 6 students from four local primary schools visited Spalding Academy to experience a very special event with Hayley Sanderson who is the lead vocalist on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Singsation! is an interactive singing workshop with Hayley and her professional band that aims to inspire and provide access to music for everyone as part of a balanced curriculum. This is something that Spalding Academy is fully committed to as demonstrated by the new music block that opened at our school this academic year.

Prior to the event, all the primary school students had been rehearsing lyrics by The Beatles from hit songs such as Help, Hey Jude and Golden Slumbers. The workshop then developed harmonies, timing and technique with vocal coaching from Hayley and her band with all schools singing their sections together to create a memorable performance.

Our music department were instrumental in setting up the event by working with Lincolnshire Music Service, liaising with primary schools and providing resources for the workshop.

Some of the highly talented music students from Spalding Academy also had the amazing opportunity to sing on the stage in front of a packed audience with a professional band and Hayley.

Thank you to The Spalding Monkshouse Primary School, St Norbert’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, Spalding Parish Church of England Day School and Spalding Primary Academy as well as Lincolnshire Music Service for bringing this incredible experience to our school.
