A choir of heroes

We could not be more proud of our *AMAZING* Unsung Heroes choir who worked so hard to produce a triumphant performance this Saturday 18th November 2023.

50 year 6 pupils from 13 Asset Education primary schools across Suffolk took part in a fun-packed day of rehearsals at Snape Maltings led by choral director Tom Appleton.

The event was the culmination of Unsung Heroes, our heritage-inspired songwriting project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund, Suffolk Archives & Britten Pears Arts.

At the end of the day the choir were joined in the beautiful Britten Studio by a wonderfully appreciative audience for the world premiere of the Unsung Heroes Songbook, a collection of 14 new songs co-created by the children with four Suffolk composers Francis Goodhand, Kitty Morgan, Charlotte Jolly & Amy Mallett.

Thanks to all the many heroes (artists, teachers, parents & supporters) who made this happen. And congrats to our choir for their well deserved standing ovation!!!
