Over the last 4 months, the choir has been practising a huge variety of songs, some with dance moves, in preparation for the Young Voices Gala Concert, which took place on Monday 8 February at the O2 arena. There is a huge sense of achievement gained from rehearsing over so many months and finally being able to perform in one of the world's largest arenas, so the children were understandably very excited.
Forty one children from years 4, 5 and 6, took part in the 8,000 strong massed choir event. After an afternoon rehearsal with the conductor and band, the evening was spent performing a range of different songs and medleys whilst also watching professional artists such as Katie Melua, Lemar, Ben Haenow and Laura Wright sing and dance for the pleasure of the audience. The singing was enhanced by the latest technology in light and sound. What a terrific experience for the children this was and probably one that they will remember for a very long time. We can't wait to do it all again next year!
