Songfest - A Celebration of Singing!
In March 2016, the Hub worked with 40 schools from around Cornwall on its first county-wide vocal project which culminated in six concerts in five different venues. The first half of each concert featured performances by the CMEH Choirs, local young singers and groups, whilst the second half of each show featured a different massed choir made up of local schools performing Ocean Commotion, Debbie Campbell's colourful and engaging environmental musical for young singers. In 2017, we worked with another 40 schools to offer a series of six concerts for our Rockin' all over the World tour and in 2018 we celebrated the seasons with a mammoth 9 concerts featuring singers from over 75 schools!
