Young Voices – 2016
Our choir travelled to Birmingham NEC to take part in the annual Young Voices Festival on January 11th with another 100 schools. Approximately 6000 pupils took part. Each school had learnt 12 songs, some with actions which were then sung as a unified choir of approximately 6000 pupils. The songs were varied in terms of genre, tempo and style and included numbers from the eighties (a Madness Medley, Video killed the Radio Star) Gospel and hits from today (a Pop-Medley). The children worked extremely hard, rehearsing the songs and performed them with great enthusiasm and gusto. Their performance was intermingled with fabulous performances from professional artists. These included the hip-hop dance group Urban Strides, an award winning beat-box group and Laura Wright who sings for international rugby matches.
