Young Voices is the largest school choir in the world. Each year over 2,500 schools, 90,000 children 6,000 teachers and 120,000 family and friends come together to enjoy music and celebrate singing. Imagine having the chance to sing with almost 7,000 other children in one big choir, in a venue as exciting as the O2 in London! Well we did! Forty-three of our Junior Choir children and four members of staff set off for a wonderful day and evening at the O2.
In preparation for the concert we had a huge variety of songs to learn ‘off by heart’ from one of the 13 movements from African Sanctus – The Lord’s Prayer to a Pop Medley with songs from One Direction and Taylor Swift.
There was real excitement from the children when we arrived. After rehearsing all afternoon we were excited to see the O2 filling up with proud parents and relations. The performance began and we sang, we danced, we watched other acts and ended up being the backing artists for Stacey Solomon. It was a truly wonderful experience for our children.
