YOUNG VOICES 2016
Monday 11th January
Overseal Primary School choir took part in the annual ‘Young Voices’ school choir concert at the Genting Arena in Birmingham.
‘The benefits of being in a choir are well-documented:
but the benefits of being in the world’s largest children’s choir
are quite simply life-changing.
Providing children with the opportunity to perform in some of the world’s greatest arenas alongside incredible artists has a massive impact on the children involved.
Furthermore, to achieve this with all their school friends around them for support, helps their self-belief, confidence and ability to communicate as part of a team, which is invaluable. Add to this the numerous health benefits of consistent singing in rehearsals, from breathing regulation to relieving stress and it’s no wonder that Young Voices is over-subscribed year after year.
One of the highlights of the whole process is to see the pride that the children have in their own performance, and this is further amplified when their parents are able to share the experience as part of the audience.
There is a massive sense of achievement gained from rehearsing over so many months and finally able to perform in some of the world's largest arenas.’
