About SongBuilders

SongBuilders will lead your children, workplace team or community group to create and perform brand new music. The SongBuilders team have been inspiring individuals to come together and express their shared ideas in devised musical theatre pieces since 2014. This year they are embarking on their first fully funded massed choir community project and they will see their Build an Opera summer school head into it’s 5th year.


The beauty of always creating new music wherever we go is that our approach is 100% scalable and adaptable. Here's how we have brought together many people young and old to discover their creative voice.



The creation of a brand new performance piece with orchestra and massed choir for the Horsham District Year of Culture. Participants will pen lyrics, fresh melodies and new musical ideas, which will be woven into a final performance piece at Christ's Hospital in Autumn 2019.


Build an Opera

Week long multi-art creative projects for schools and holiday clubs. Creating and performing a brand new piece of music theatre in just one week. Designing it from the ground up, participants write the stories, the words, the music and get covered in paint as they build the set, props and costumes.
