In addition to large scale performance events, cluster projects and training programmes, the Hub has commissioned a small team of music specialists to work with schools and support the skill development of their teachers:
Vocal Strategy Lead - Angela Renshaw
The Hub's Vocal Strategy Lead. Angela Renshaw, and her team of vocal specialists visit schools, both primary and secondary, to develop their singing activities and help schools to set up their own choirs. Contact the Hub office to arrange for support from Angela or her team - CMEH@cornwall.gov.uk
VOICES Twilight Meetings
Angela Renshaw will again be offering free Twilight Vocal Support Meetings as part of the CMEH Vocal Strategy. We would like to invite vocal leaders and music co-ordinators from both Primary and Secondary Schools to attend. The meetings will focus on the Cornwall Singing Schools Awards.
