YOUNG VOICES 2020

Next Choir Practice...

We have had great fun at our first choir session tonight! We were focusing on 'Best of the West' which is a medley of great Western-style musicals, including Oklahoma!, Annie Get Your Gun and Calamity Jane. Please can the children continue to practise this medley at home. The lyrics are on an attachment on this webpage and the link to the music is below. Thanks, Mr Wormleighton :-)

Young Voices 2020 Lyrics

About Young Voices

For the past 23 years, Young Voices has staged the largest children's choir concerts in the world. Over 2 million children have taken part in a Young Voices concert and they believe passionately in inspiring the next generation to find their love for music.

Each night, between 5,000-8,000 children perform as a single choir to a sold-out audience of family and friends.

Young Voices' aim is to inspire a love of music and create memories for the children that will last a lifetime.

The music is specially 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 will learn, enjoy, and gain a fuller understanding of music and what it means to sing together. Young Voices also aspire to connect families through music and to share in the learning experience when children practice at home.

For some of the music, Young Voices provide a simple selection of dance moves that are learned and performed whilst singing the songs. Children and teachers particularly enjoy the combination of dancing and singing, adding a fun, electric atmosphere to the concert.

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.
