Walsall Music Hub’s Christmas Choir Celebration 2023
(28th – 30th November)

Dear Head Teacher / Music Co-ordinator / Head of Music

Walsall Music Education Hub is pleased to announce our School Choirs’ Christmas Celebrations for 2023 – “Christmas Cracker”– will take place in the Walsall Arena and Arts Centre’s A3 Arena over a 3 day period: 28th - 30th November.

Each day school choirs will take part in an intensive afternoon workshop/rehearsal and evening performance.  This is also a CPD opportunity for staff observing high quality choral directing.  On each evening a massed choir of approximately 200 young voices will be supported by a live band.

Ula Weber returns for a second year directing all CPD sessions, workshops and performances.  Ula is a highly experienced choral director for childrens, youth and adult choirs with an outstanding reputation of high-quality training for staff, not just in vocal delivery, but also in conducting.  For more information visit Ula’s website:

In preparation for the event, The Music Education Hub will provide:

  • ‘Meet the Music’ session(s) with Ula Weber held for school teachers and choir leaders at Walsall Arena and Arts Centre on 13th and 14th September 2023 at 4pm – 6pm.  You only need to attend one of these.  This will be a vital CPD session for all staff leading or accompanying children in schools.
  • All the music and resources will be provided including backing tracks.
  • The resources will be suitable for use in your own school’s Christmas performances.
  • The performances will be accompanied by a professional live band.

To take part in the performance, including the educational workshop, CPD opportunities and access to the resources (which can be used in schools) you will need pay a non-refundable fee of £175.
