Young Voices 2020
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 the songs to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. 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.
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 Monday 27th January 2020. The event is open to children in year's 4, 5 & 6. As always, the staff accompanying the children will be Mrs Hodder, Mrs Frise, Mrs Bailiss and Mrs Goode.
The Young Voices song pack has arrived and we're very excited already as it's a fantastic selection of songs....yet again.
A mixture of contemporary and classic music, with fabulous special guests - Tony Hadley is back for second year, The Shires & Ruti (winner of The Voice) ; it'll make for an amazing night. This will be Uphill's 6th year of participating, so we're experts at it now!
We will rehearse on a Thursday afternoon for an hour and it will be an expectation that the children will attend as many sessions as possible. 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 and coach travel. We believe this will be around £32 per child. There are optional purchases of lunch at a cost of £3.00 and a t-shirt (including torch & wristband) for £12.00. Children entitled to free school meals or receive pupil premium funding will be eligible to financial assistance for this trip.

Songs for 2020 will be on the website shortly. Have a look at 2019 to get a feel for what it's all about.
The rehearsals are our first chance to see the huge arena and sing those songs we've been learning for the last few months. Its a long time for us all to concentrate but we give it our all!
We can't describe in a few photos just how fantastic this event is.......roll on 2020.
Application letters for current year 3, 4 & 5 children will be out in July. You really should experience it!!
