Something Special Happens
This is a brand new song, written for Camden. We would like as many schools as possible to learn it and record it so we can create a Camden-wide version. Sheet music and learning tracks are here. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to add your voices to the borough-wide project.
Camden World Song Project II
The Camden World Song Project began in the early 2000s as a way of highlighting and celebrating the wealth of cultures and languages in our schools, focusing on songs, music and dancing.
Involving children, parents and staff from schools across the borough, songs were collected, collated and shared. A printed pack of songs and a CD of children’s performances was produced – and is still available. The project inspired similar projects across London and more widely across the UK.
