Peace Proms

Peace Proms 2018 Main 2

This is an outstanding production so bring all the family – young and old! 

Following the huge success of last year’s Liverpool concert, Peace Proms returns to the Arena on Saturday 26 January. Sharing a love for music and passion for peace Peace Proms is a celebration of music, youth, energy and talent on an epic scale.

The critically acclaimed Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland will perform with the Liverpool Children’s Peace Choir made up of 3,000 Primary School children. The choir will sing a programme filled with family favourites including Disney and Pop Medleys, and powerful peace anthems like Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’. The programme is packed full of fun and has something for everyone – there’s even a Disco Medley for all the Mums and Dads.

Peace Proms is a FREE music education resource for Primary Schools which will culminate in a large-scale performance for choirs and orchestra at M&S Bank Arena. The programme promotes ‘peace through music’ and already engages almost 30,000 children from 500 schools throughout the UK, Northern Ireland and Ireland, giving them the opportunity to sing in a large-scale production with a choir of up to 4,000 and a full symphony youth orchestra.

Peace Proms is for all primary school choirs whether established or starting out. The musical programme is tailor made to ensure it is fun and engaging for children aged between 8 and 12 years; it fulfills important educational requirements and is very rewarding to teach. The end performance is an inspirational and thrilling experience for choirs, teachers, parents and audiences alike!

The Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland CBOI is Ireland’s most celebrated and award winning youth orchestra, and will be the featured Orchestra for Liverpool Peace Proms 2019. The CBOI has performed to sell out audiences at many major venues throughout the world including Carnegie Hall New York; the Royal Albert Hall, London; and the Oriental Arts Centre Shanghai.

Peace Proms 2019 will be conducted by internationally acclaimed UK music educator Greg Beardsell who is renowned for his extraordinary ability to lead powerful and exhilarating performances. Peace Proms 2019 will bring a shared love for music and passion for peace to ever-greater numbers of children, schools, communities and live audiences throughout the UK and Ireland.
