700 children take part in Stoke-on-Trent City Music Service Christmas Concerts

Stoke-on-Trent City Music Service have received an impressive amount of local press coverage this week for their City Songbird’s Christmas Concerts with over 700 children involved over three nights. The concert has grown significantly since first starting up in 2002 when it had only one school of just 32 children taking part. Ruth Steele, joint lead of the City Music Service, said: “We really enjoy watching the children enjoy themselves. Songbirds is all about helping the children to not just improve their singing abilities but to help them learn lots of new skills and build their confidence”.  All of the concerts involved pupils from around Staffordshire, aged five to 19.
