Young Voices Choir
Wild Bank are going to Young Voices this year. On the 2nd February our school Choir will go the the MEN Arena in Manchester
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 performing in some of the world's largest arenas.

On Friday 16th December we headed out to entertain the residents at Melbourne Court in Stalybridge. The children were their usual fabulous selves, singing with confidence, enthusiasm and in tune! The ladies and gentlemen were thoroughly entertained and full of festive cheer! The school received a donation of £100 for the Young Voices Choir fund- Wow we were all amazed and so very grateful, it was our pleasure!
Not long to go now until the big day! just one more choir rehearsal to run through the songs and dances again. We are so proud of the children's dedication to the choir - turning up week after week and committing to be part of a great group. It's been more than just showing up though, its been being prepared and bettering ourselves so that when the 2nd Feb arrives we are beyond ready.
The children will soon forget all the practices but they will never forget the performance! Can't wait, watch this space for more updates & pics.
