The schools Sing Fest has grown in size this year, extending to two days, with twice as many Suffolk Coastal schools taking part. The schools will perform songs all together, as well as singing their own individual items. They will have spent all term perfecting them – displaying the amazing capacity young children have for memorising lyrics. Some pieces will be in unison and others will involve singing in parts/in harmony.

Come and support our young performers at 1.15 pm each day and experience  the infectious enthusiasm of children singing together.

The Happy Prince
by Malcolm Williamson

Written in 1960, the composer based this beguiling forty-five minute opera on the story for children by Oscar Wilde. It tells of the golden statue of The Happy Prince, who persuades a migrating Swallow to spread precious gifts over the poor and needy in his city, with tragic consequences. But from the tragedy comes a message of love, hope and redemption, which transcends the dark- ness of the world below.

A  fully  staged production  performed  by  Members of Jubilee Opera joined by professional singers, small orchestra, production team and conductor.

Cast includes
The Happy Prince James Hall counter-tenor
The Mayor Robert Gildon baritone 
Jubilee Opera Ensemble Conductor Alastair Chilvers

‘The Happy Prince’ will be preceded by a short selection of songs from Jubilee Children’s Choir with children from primary schools in the Suffolk Coastal area.

Conductor Michelle Kelly.
