Due to popular demand, we have made a booking for our KS2 children (years 3 to 6) from across the federation to take part in the Young Voices concert at Sheffield Arena on Tuesday 7th January 2020. All the children in year 2 to 6 will be learning the songs and actions in their weekly singing lesson from next week.
The songs this year include a Frightfest medley, a Queen medley, REM, Phil Collins, a pop medley and a Best of the West medley. As the Young Voices arena concert is only open to children in Year 3 to 6, we have considered how to showcase the fantastic songs to our Year 2 parents and also to any other parents who cannot make the arena concert. We have decided to either incorporate some of the songs into our Christmas concert or invite parents to watch a selection of the Young Voices songs in a mini-concert in the hall.
The children will travel on a coach, leaving at around lunchtime; they spend the afternoon rehearsing for the performance and have a packed lunch for tea in the venue. All children must travel to and from the venue on the coach. Parents can attend the concert which starts at 7.00pm and finishes around 9.15pm and tickets are around £20 per person. There is also an option to purchase a t-shirt for your child to wear, which includes a small torch and wrist band – these are priced at around £12.
Here is the website, should you wish to look at photos and details of last year’s concerts:
Please be aware that your Year 3 to 6 child can still attend the concert with school even if parents are not able to attend the concert as spectators.
Here's a report from the night!
Our federation joined together on the first day back after Christmas to enjoy a night at the Young Voices at Sheffield Arena. The children had an early lunch, travelled by coach to the arena and spent the afternoon rehearsing for the main event. After enjoying their pack up, parents started to arrive at 6.00pm and the event kicked off at 7.00pm. Miss Lamb, a teaching assistant at Chapel Haddlesey, who attended with the children reported:
Wow what a rocking night everyone had at Young Voices 2020. We danced and sang our hearts out in Sheffield to both old and new songs, even songs in another language. One of our favourites in rehearsals was 'Frightfest' and it was so much fun seeing everyone dancing to Ghostbusters live in front of 1000's of people. We joined Tony Hadley for a queen medley which had us all ….having a good time. After such a long day, a few of our young voices had a nap on the way home but it was well deserved and I know I am very proud of them all.
Here’s to 2021!
