Last week, more than 1,200 pupils from across 14 local primary schools took part in the Peterborough Sings! Big Band Singing Days at the Broadway Theatre.
During two days full of fun and enjoyment, the pupils worked on a repertoire to give them an insight into the world of big band swing, including learning songs from Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
Accompanied by the 19-piece Peterborough Youth Jazz Orchestra, the final concert proved to be a real hit and the delightful sounds of both the band and the fabulous singers filled the Broadway Theatre.
The schools who participated in this year’s event, included Gunthorpe, Old Fletton, Nene Valley, Heritage Park, Fourfields, Longthorpe, Welbourne, Paston Ridings, Woodston, Sawtry, Southview, Norwood, Beeches and Thorpe.
