Young Voices 2024
On Tuesday 6th February, we took our choir of 53 children to AO Arena Manchester to take part in the Young Voices Concert within a massed choir of 8994 children.
The children had an amazing time singing with the massed choir and some special guests including the amazing 13 year-old drumming prodigy, Nandi Bushell, the World Book Day hero, MC Grammar and the fabulous soul and jazz singer, Natalie Williams.
They also enjoyed dancing with Andy Instone and the Urban Strides troupe.
Rehearsals - Moana
Rehearsal with Natalie Williams
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.
The children behaved beautifully throughout the day, and it was great to see them making friends with pupils from the other schools around us.

The afternoon rehearsals were great fun and prepared us for the evening concert. We were thrilled to discover that our seats had an excellent view of the stage.
The children and staff were very excited to have the opportunity to see the performing artists and the musicians and to be able to practice all the songs we had been busy learning at school.
Rehearsal Warm Up - Firework
After we had eaten our tea, it was finally time to get 'Concert Ready' with our T-Shirts and tiny torches.
Once the audience began to arrive, we had fun trying to spot our family and friends who had come along to support us.
Today is gonna be a great day!
