Music Making Project for Children and Young People Age: 13 to 25

The Glee project, based on the popular TV series, gives children from Edmonton the opportunity to take part in Glee clubs where they are able to showcase and develop their singing and performance skills.  The fully inclusive clubs, run by inspirational tutors from Pineapple Performing Arts School (PPAS), focus on fun and raising aspirations.  There is also a competitive element where all Glee clubs are brought together at the end of the project to perform at a prestigious London theatre in a live show in front of a panel of judges.  Families of performers are invited to cheer them on and a range of prizes are awarded including PPAS scholarships, trophies and certificates.
