‘Being inspired by Gareth Malone’s TV show in which he encourages and motivates boys to sing, The City Academy Hackney has decided to spread his legacy to Hackney schools. Two years ago music department has created a boys only choir, which turned to be an inspiration for other schools to create their own male choirs. To promote singing among boys, who at certain age tend to shy away from using their voices and often find singing girly and not cool, we have come up with the annual event called ‘Boys Can Sing’.
This year is going to be even more exciting because it will involve over 120 boys from Hackney borough and fantastic guest artists to run the workshops, such as male vocalists from the a cappella group, VOCES8 and Shlomo. The event will take place on 16th June and the schools participating this year are: The City Academy Hackney, Skinners Academy, Hackney New School, Rushmore Primary School, Daubeney Primary School.
