Thousands of Wiltshire children to sing outside on 21st June at 2.15pm

Wiltshire Music Connect commissioned “Together” – a song for Wiltshire Schools during lockdown last year. To celebrate being together again in our schools they invited schools to join in and sing the song in playgrounds and on school fields on June 21st at 2.15pm.

June 21st is International Make Music Day – as well as the scheduled day for lifting Covid restrictions.

Composers Tim Gilvin and Louise Jordan had been due to work in schools when the pandemic hit last year – so instead they were asked to write a song using words sent in by young people. “Together” was written online, and a set of free resources for schools was produced, including backing track, lyrics, an improvisation section, and signing videos.

Now that schools are back, getting their singing confidence back, and starting to use the resources many of them will be celebrating by joining Wiltshire’s All Sing Together day, and the composers and singing leaders are busy visiting schools to help pupils learn the song – and even write their own lyrics!

At time of issue over 3,300 pupils will be singing, in 25 schools across the county – and more schools are signing up every day.

If you step outside or open your window at 2.15pm on June 21st you just might hear the song!

Wiltshire Music Connect are asking people to let them know if you hear the song on the day by using #TogetherSongWiltshire on social media.

Schools and other organisations can find out how to join in here:
