St Teresa’s School, Hartlepool from 10.00 a.m.

To celebrate International Make Music Day and to put a smile on peoples’ faces, Tees Valley Music Service (TVMS) will be marking the event with ‘pop-up’ Flash Mobs across the combined authorities.
Four key songs will be performed starting with the official Make Music Day anthem for 2021, Stand By Me by Ben E. King.
Members of the TVMS Management Team will form a 10-piece band and perform a live performance of four songs, accompanied by some children from St. Teresa’s Catholic Primary School.
Manager, Susan Robertson described it as “a feel-good singalong and an opportunity for us to celebrate the power of music, how integral it is to all our lives and how it can help us feel better about ourselves and what we’ve all gone through over the past 18 months.”
Originally planned to occur in Town Centres throughout the region, given restrictions remaining in place for a further 4 weeks to the previously anticipated lift on the 21st June, TVMS made the decision to re-locate the Flash Mob performances.

Though there is space within the government guidance to make a short public performance like this work – providing safety protocols are adhered to – the decision was taken by TVMS with consideration of the councils, schools, and ourselves in mind, to relocate the pop-up events out of the public town centres and into a number of school playgrounds.

The schools that had practised for the events on Monday are very excited and local councillors, mayors and dignitaries will be making an appearance.



As the lead partner of the Tees Valley Music Education Hub, we’re responsible for the highest quality music provision for individuals, communities, and schools who opt to receive our services. This includes instrument and vocal tuition; whole-class teaching, curriculum support and CPD; orchestras, choirs and other ensembles; short courses such as Music Production and Rock Factory; events such as our renowned SNAPPY big-sing events; digital resources. The list goes on!

In fact, we also have 4,000+ instruments and a library of 60,000+ pieces of music – all available to hire. Basically, anything you need which involves music, give us a call.


We recognise the importance of on-going, constructive communication with local, national and international partnerships to help us make the case for the importance of music to improve wellbeing in our communities. We’d love you to keep connected with us;
