Another Amazing Time at YOUNG VOICES!
Once again our children enjoyed a fabulous concert at the Manchester Arena on Thursday evening 14th February. 47 children along with 7 adults boarded the coach in Gisburn with high spirits and set off to join 200 other schools. The afternoon practise went smoothly with timely rehearsal appearances from Tony Hadley, Beau Dermott and Vula Malinga. After a packed tea, the children eagerly awaited the arrival of parents and friends. There was much waving and excitement as time grew closer to the start of the concert. The mass choir of children and staff sang their way through a variety of original songs and medleys. The atmosphere was electric with emotions running high. The ballads with little torches shining throughout the arena were particularly moving.
Thank you very much to the staff who made this trip possible, and to the parents and friends who came to watch us. I hope that your enjoyment of the concert matched ours. On the way home all the children declared that the concert was fantastic, confirming yet again how valuable such experiences really are for our children.
