Young Voices at O2 Arena

We received requests from two of our local primary schools for help with the transport for their choirs to go up to the O2 Arena in London to take part in ‘Young Voice’ massed choir concerts.
For the past 20 years, Young Voices has staged the largest children's choir concerts in the world with over 2 million children having taken part. Each night, between 5,000-8,000 children perform as a single choir to a sold-out audience of family and friends. The aim is to inspire a love of music and create memories for the children that will last a lifetime. The music is selected to create a diverse musical repertoire all with the intention to introduce children to the widest possible spectrum of music. By providing a diverse range of musical styles children learn, enjoy, and gain a fuller understanding of music and what it means to sing together.
Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing together. With a full 7-piece live band made up of some of the UK’s leading musicians, backing singers, and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence – it makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine.
So, it didn’t take us long to agree to support Seaford Primary School and Annecy Catholic Primary School by providing some money to help with cost of coaches to take the children to London and back.
Thus, on 6th December, President Mike Roper presented a cheque for £300 to Seaford Primary School, and on 12th January presented a cheque for the same sum of money to Annecy Catholic Primary School.
