WEDNESDAY 11 JULY, 7PM, EVENT ZONE B, TOWN MOOR AND EAST END, STAGE.
Children from Sunderland Youth Orchestra are joining forces with Royal Northern Sinfonia and Sunderland Symphony Orchestra to get everyone in the summer proms mood and celebrate The Tall Ships Races.
Audiences will have the amazing opportunity to sing along with a live, full orchestra, joining in with familiar songs such as I am Sailing and Jerusalem, alongside a programme of sea themed music specially curated to celebrate the event.
Sunderland Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1999 to offer classical and light orchestral music opportunities and experiences for local people. This year, with support from Arts Council England, it is entering into a number of local partnerships and this joint platform with the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Sunderland Youth Orchestra is a product of this collaboration.
