The Cornwall Music Education Hub Vocal Strategy
To promote and support engagement in quality vocal activities for all young people
The sustained development of vocal activity for young people in order to offer a high quality and accessible programme which supports progression.
About the Strategy
The Cornwall Music Education Hub's Vocal Strategy is led by Angela Renshaw. On behalf of the Hub, she works with partners, schools and national organisations to drive forward the development of singing activity in Cornwall. Information about current initiatives can be found on this page and also at the termly Twilight sessions.
The Cornwall Music Education Hub is committed to supporting high quality vocal activity. In order to realise this vision, the CMEH is working with a range of partners to deliver:
- a network of choirs across the county to provide a vocal progression framework
- school cluster vocal projects
- subsidised Sing Up membership
- Cornish Singing School programme - to recognise schools' commitment to vocal activity
- large scale events to celebrate singing
- performance opportunities at Hub showcases
- training for vocal leaders (school and community), delivered by nationally recognised vocal experts
- masterclasses for young people on singing and song writing
- a training programme to develop the next generation of vocal leaders
Cornish Singing Schools
We are excited to be working with nationally renowned vocal specialist, Baz Chapman, on a new award which will help Cornish schools to develop their own vocal strategies and also recognise their commitment to quality singing.

We will once again be working with schools across the county to deliver a countywide project to which celebrates excellence in singing. All participating schools will be given free Sing Up membership as part of the package of support.

During the Spring 2017 term, Mahogany Operas worked with five Cornish schools to develop 5 new mini children's operas. These Snappy Operas were performed for the first time at Launceston Town Hall on 29th March.
Inspired by the Brothers Grimm, real life experiences and ideas from the children themselves, the evening featured colourful characters including unicorns, dodos, sheep, hens and even headlice!
