Stop Everything and Sing Live – KS2

KS2-Live! Singers and Primary Orchestra – We Can Be Heroes!

We are very excited about this first combined event for singers and players in your schools.  We are delighted that our good friend, Naomi Wilkinson from CBBC, will once again be joining us.  There will be an opportunity for some of the children to tell Naomi who their Superhero has been during this year… more details about that later!

The event will follow the pattern of our Schools’ Summer concerts, with a rehearsal in May and a live event in June.  We have chosen a selection of songs and orchestral pieces for your KS2 Singers and any pupils who would like to participate in the Primary Orchestra (any age, but confident to hold their own instrumental line).

Music for Primary Orchestra Players

This is a fun and exciting opportunity for any child in KS1 or KS2 to participate in our first virtual Primary Orchestra.  Children should be confident enough to play their own instrumental line and the pieces have been specially arranged, so parts are available from easy to more challenging for all levels of ability.

Over the Rainbow scores:

Somewhere over the Rainbow

The two other pieces are arranged in 4 parts and we suggest they are suitable for the following instruments, but if you need anything in a different key, adjusted range, or more challenging, please contact

Part 1: Flute/Violin

Part 2: Oboe/Violin

Part 3: Violin

Part 4: Cello/Bassoon/Bass/Trombone

P3 in Bb: Clarinet/Cornet

P3 in Bass clef – more challenging cello or possibly trombone/bassoon

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
