Who We Are

MusicShare is an award-winning Schools Singing Programme that works with local primary, secondary and special schools to encourage children to sing.  MusicShare is a partnership between Lichfield Cathedral School, Lichfield Cathedral and The Music Partnership.

Today, we work with around 150 schools per year, bringing the joy of singing to thousands of children across the West Midlands.

We also currently have four regular MusicShare choirs that meet weekly in Lichfield during term-time spanning ages 0-99 and you can find more information on our CHOIRS page.

How We Work

Through a mixture of core projects and one-off workshops, MusicShare staff teach children healthy, quality singing through learning repertoire (popular songs, classical and choral works) in preparation for a performance in front of an audience of family, friends and the local community.

These performances are often in the Cathedral but we also perform in many other venues, such as in secondary schools collaborating with their feeder primary schools. 

We often take Young Singing Leaders (many of whom are choristers and former-choristers) out to schools to demonstrate what can be achieved by children their own age who work hard, rehearse regularly and focus themselves on becoming highly proficient musicians.

How We Are Funded

MusicShare is hugely grateful for the financial support of Art’s Council England via The Music Partnership which enables our work to develop and expand.

We would also like to express our gratitude to Lichfield Conduit Lands Trust, for their support of our Mini, Young & Youth Voices choirs during this difficult pandemic year.
