Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Every year, schools across the country practise music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1 million pounds for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.
With a full live band, backing singers and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence, it makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine.
All the music is specially selected and arranged to give the children the widest variety of songs to perform. We also hope that by providing a diverse range of musical styles children will learn, enjoy, and gain a greater, fuller understanding of music. Children and teachers particularly enjoy the combination of dancing and singing, adding an electric atmosphere or - 'tingle factor' - to the concerts.
Singing in such a large choir means you don’t have to be a great singer – as long as you sing loud and proud you’ll have a fantastic experience! We would encourage any child who wishes to experience a massive, live music concert to consider joining us.
This year we are attending the Birmingham concerts at the NEC on 30th January 2017. We have decided this year to open up this fantastic opportunity to children in years 4, 5 & 6 who wish to attend. They do not have to be a member of the choir. This year’s the staff accompanying the children will be Mrs Hodder, Mrs Frise, Mrs Bailiss and Mrs Goode.
We will rehearse on a Wednesday afternoon for an hour and it will be an expectation that the children will attend every session. Children will also need to commit to learning the songs and actions via a CD and DVD at home so they can immerse themselves fully in the experience. There is a cost for the trip, including the registration fee, coach travel, food and torch. We believe this will be around £20 per child.
