Schoolchildren from across the region are warming up for a performance at The Sage Gateshead.
Around 3000 children from 60 schools across the North East and Cumbria will take part in the Big Sing event on July 9.
In preparation for the show, pupils from Lord Blyton School in South Shields sang in front of an audience of shoppers in Newcastle’s Eldon Square.
Katherine Zeserson, Director of Learning & Participation at The Sage Gateshead, said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing the excitement of the children and hearing their achievements.
“The Big Sing days are always incredibly fun and inspiring for the children and they go away with the confidence to continue singing and develop the music skills they’ve learnt.”
The Big Sing is sponsored by Capital Shopping Centres (Metrocentre and Eldon Square).
Alexander Nicoll, Director of Corporate Responsibility at Capital Shopping Centres, said: “Our partnership with The Sage Gateshead over the last six years has showcased the singing talents of thousands of school children from right across the North East and promoted the joy of group singing directly into hundreds of schools.
“It seems very appropriate for The Big Sing to reach out beyond The Sage Gateshead and these schools to entertain the wider public at special events hosted in the malls by Eldon Square and Metrocentre.”
