THAMES Summer Singing Challenge!

Over the next 6 weeks, we are encouraging children, families and schools to get singing! During these challenging times, when we’re stuck at home and not able to see friends and relatives, we want to bring people together through the joy of singing.

Every couple of weeks we will announce a new song to learn, and will provide lyric sheets and backing tracks. Check out the songs below! *New song released 18 May 2020*

SING with your family, or for those still in school, with your fellow students and teachers.

How it works

The Singing Challenge will culminate on Friday 19 June. On this day, we invite you to:

  1. Share your songs with your friends and families (or your classmates and teachers if you are at school)
  2. Share a photo on social media tagging @THAMES_music on Twitter and using the hashtag #THAMESsings
  3. Upload your photos here and we’ll create a Summer Singing Challenge photo album for the website. Please ensure parental consent is obtained before any photos are shared.

Friday 19 June is two days before international Make Music Day where millions of people across the world in 125 countries will be celebrating music. Let's make music together!
