Full of excitement and anticipation the day had finally arrived. 60 very excited children assembled in the school hall ready for the off!!!
Another year, another Young Voices! It was lovely to return to the usual activities of Young Voices in Birmingham. As usual, one of the highlights for the children were seeing all the sheep in the fields on the coach. With two coaches in tow, Mrs Roberts led Woodston school into the arena and got us all settled for meal number one of the day. When we arrived to our seats, 4 rows of 20 with the best view of all, we were amazed at the size of the arena and over 20,000 children were taking part. Singing in such a big choir was an amazing feeling. The atmosphere was electric and the children were very excited. They did such a good job remembering the actions and singing the songs. Then, the second pack up, a little walk to stretch our legs, and ready for the parents to arrive. After lots of waving and shouting across the Arena we finally spotted our visitors. Once they started filing in, the atmosphere came to life even more. There was a brilliant selection of songs and we tried our hardest with every single one of them. We got to see Heather Small perform her famous song ‘Proud’ too! We loved seeing other people perform including Urban Strides, Beat Box Collective and Anna Phoebe.
We were all so PROUD of you- The Woodston Choir!
After such a hectic day we expected a few sleepy heads on the journey home.....no such luck!!!
Thank you to everyone who made the day possible; a day never to be forgotten.
