Our Glee Club Performed at Young Voices Concert
Around 30 children from Years 4 to 6 performed with up to 8,000 other children as a single choir to a capacity audience of family and friends.
The children had been preparing for the concert, at the Resorts World Arena, since September and they knew the 12 pieces of music off by heart.
Education Welfare Assistant Callum Reilly said: ‘Preparing for Young Voices is always a good challenge. There’s lots of songs that the students really know and like doing and there’s others where we have had to take quite a lot of time breaking them down and learning them. Young Voices write some of their own material as well so they are songs that have a lot of meaning behind them.
Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet and The Shires performed and there was also a professional dance group there.
The students were really excited and some parents also went along to support them and see the spectacle of thousands of children singing in unison.’
