St. Peter’s Junior School at the largest school choir in the world, the Young Voices Concert at the O2.
Congratulations to St. Peter’s Choir and members of St. Peter’s Chorale, who sang superbly at the O2 Young Voices Show on Tuesday 6th February. All pupils practiced really hard for weeks beforehand, giving up their lunch breaks, attending rehearsals, learning the songs and getting up to speed on the dance moves!
What an amazing night, the children were so excited to be part of such a huge choir of 8,000, performing alongside professional singers and dancers to a sell-out crowd of 20,000 people – a truly memorable experience we will all be taking away from this. A massive thanks to all our families and friends who came to support us, you were amazing too, and “You’re In The Band!”
Mrs A Dean, Music Coordinator
The Young Voices aim is to inspire a love of music and create memories for the children that will last a lifetime.
The YV team say:
“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.
Our 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. We also aspire to connect families through music and to share in the learning experience when children practice at home.”
