Young Voices 2017

Gallions Mount School Choir were lucky enough to take part in Young Voices 2017 at the O2 Arena on the 6th February. The last 3-4 months were spent learning all 12 songs that were sung on the night alongside over 7,000 children from schools across the whole of the UK. Parents and carers were invited along and were treated to a night of musical talent. Not only did they get to see their children sing but they were entertained with performances from dance troop Urban Strides, the amazing The Beatbox Collective and were treated to special guest performances from X-Factor runner up Tabby Callaghan and Vula Malinga from Basement Jaxx; all supported with backing vocals from the children that filled the O2. The children set off at 1pm to rehearse at the O2 all afternoon until the show started at 7pm. It was a very long day but was enjoyed by all children and staff. Special thanks go to Ms Kaur and Zoe who continue to build a strong choir and Mrs Stanczyk and Lucy for helping to chaperone the children. We hope to be attending Young Voices 2018 and are looking to include more children next year as our choir continues to grow!

Following on from Young Voices our choir will be taking part in the annual St Thomas Moore Concert in March 2017. Further details will be released nearer the time.
