Young Voices provides an unrivalled musical opportunity for primary school children to perform all styles of music including folk, pop, rock and classical. Young Voices is designed to unify children from across the region, boost their confidence and provide lifelong memories for them and their families. Teachers & Pupils practice the dance routines and learn the songs in their music lessons for many months before they excitedly come together for the penultimate show at their local arena. This is an unmissable opportunity for local school choirs to sing in huge arenas alongside some of the most talented & well known artists from the world of music.
Their choirs range from 4,500 to 8,500 children, all performing at the same time to capacity audiences of friends and family. Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Every year, schools across the country practise their music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1 million pounds for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.
“The most amazing time of my life” – X-factor winner Alexandra Burke on her time at Young Voices
Ben Lewis, Managing Director of Young Voices is adamant that “every pupil should be exposed to music at an early age, whether the joy is singing, playing an instrument or loving the sound of music, the potential benefits are huge. My father David, started Young Voices 20 years ago, I can’t believe how much we’ve grown. 20 arena dates to mark our 20th anniversary is such an achievement and shows the we are making a real difference to the children and schools”
“It was a most fabulous experience! All the children sung brilliantly and enjoyed shining their torches to create incredible effects. We all enjoyed the dancing and listening to all the singers and groups. “Music Teachers at Foresters Primary School
