A group of children from Year 6, 7 and 8 were fortunate enough to attend and sing at the Young Voices event at London's O2 arena recently.
Having been told that it was the “Largest School Choir in the World” and “The Biggest Pop Concert” before signing up to the experience, the teaching staff all agreed that the show organisers certainly weren't wrong! There were almost 9,000 children attending from schools around the UK who all experienced a live band, professional singers and legends like Tony Hadley. They all came together to create a magnificent spectacle for a packed O2 audience. What an incredible experience for our 40 lucky singers, who had to learn over 50 pages of music plus countless choreography steps and dances to perform to such a high standard with the other 100 schools!
The children were ecstatic over their unique experience; Paula loved “the energy from everyone”, Raphael “the positivity”, Peter “the opportunity”, Madeleine “the enjoyment” and Fabienne mentioned “the cheering when people have done well”. Alan summed it up brilliantly by telling us “the atmosphere was incredible.”
