Pupils shine in preparation for BBC Music Day

Pupils are getting together to write songs with the help of musician, Roger Davies as they prepare to perform at BBC Music Day in June.

The pupils in year 5 and 6 from Keelham Primary School, Dixons Music Primary School, Marshfield Primary School and Feversham Primary Academy will sing four songs together at the event in City Park.

Roger Davies – a guitarist, vocalist and harmonica player – is hosting singing and song writing workshops with the children ahead of BBC Music Day.

In preparation for the event, Mr. Davies will visit each school and host rehearsals to enable the pupils to practise for the event.

It has been confirmed that one of the songs will be written with the help of the youngsters and will be called ‘Bradford City Serenade’.

Other songs which will be performed are:  Bradford Born ’N’ Raised, as well as On Ilkla Moor Baht ’At and Lou Reed’s Perfect Day.

BBC Music Day takes place in City Park on Friday, 9 June.
