On Friday, 20 January, Years 4, 5 and 6 travelled to the O2 Arena to sing as part of a massed choir of 7800 children, for the 20th year celebration of Young Voices. Rehearsals had commenced in September 2016 in preparation for the day, and as a singing school, the pupils knew they also had to put in the hours of practice at home and in the playground.
Pupils and teachers performed songs in many languages and musical styles, complete with dance moves. We were lucky to be sitting right at the front, and so enjoyed an immersive professional rehearsal experience in addition to the excitement of performing in the evening concert. The audience was also invited to join in with a dance routine to a medley of Justin Timberlake, which was an amazing sight to see when performing.
It was an absolutely fantastic day, with all pupils giving their highest standard of singing for a memorable performance, with plenty of team work and fun along the way. Well done to all who took part, and thank you to the 112 family and friends that supported us in the audience.
