Inspire are thrilled to announce that this year's An Inspired Christmas concert will feature a Community Sing feature, produced by choral director and arranger Mark De Lisser

We are inviting our whole Music Hub community to get involved by submitting an audio and video recording of Winter Wonderland, a new arrangement by Mark De Lisser!

If you are a Notts based teacher, Inspire Music parent / pupil, Inspire choir member or a member of the wider Inspire staff community, do get involved!

How to get involved

  • Resources from Mark De Lisser:  We will email you a url to an Inspire webpage containing the event resources. This will include a short introductory video from Mark, plus lyrics and vocal parts for you to download. 
  • Recording your performance + image consent:  Don’t worry about vocal perfection or the odd slip, the overall effect will be amazing.  Please check you have the consent of all performers for the video to be edited by Mark De Lisser (producer). We will also need performers consent for the video screening on Monday 6th December (at Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall) and for the video to be streamed out to our online audience by Streampark (our digital platform). Inspire will also be sharing images from the video on social media. Phew, that's a lot of consent, but it's vital we are clear early on as we anticipate we'll attract a big audience live and online!

By uploading your video you will be agreeing that Mark De Lisser,  The Royal Concert Hall, Streampark and Inspire have consent to edit/share your recordings. Upload deadline:  10am Friday 26th November.
  • Editing: Mark De Lisser will edit all our community submissions together into a large festive 'Community Sing' recording. This video will be screened as part of 'An Inspired Christmas concert' at the Royal Concert Hall stage and online on the Streampark digital events platform on performance day, Monday 6th December.
