Young Voices 2023
On Monday 30th January, we took our choir of 56 children to AO Arena Manchester to take part in the Young Voices Concert within a massed choir of 8807 children.
The children had an amazing time singing with the massed choir and some special guests including soul singer Heather Small from M People, the amazing violinist Anna Phoebe and the world-famous Beatbox Collective.
They also enjoyed dancing with Andy Instone and the Urban Strides troupe.
After we had eaten our tea, it was finally time to get 'Concert Ready' with our T-Shirts and tiny torches (always the most exciting part of the day!)
Once the audience began to arrive, we had fun trying to spot our family and friends who had come along to support us.

The afternoon rehearsals were great fun and prepared us for the evening concert.
The children and staff were very excited to have the opportunity to see the performing artists and the musicians.
The actual performance was an amazing experience. The children loved seeing all the torches lit up at once, and were transfixed by the amazing lighting displays by the Young Voices technical staff.
Everyone sang and danced their hearts out, and it was lovely to see so many happy smiling faces.
As always, our children's behaviour was excellent, and set an example to others around them.
