Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Singing Club Wow at O2 Young Voices

On Tuesday last week 34 talented singers from St Stephen’s joined 200 other schools to form a choir that was more than 8,800 strong.

It was the biggest choir ever to sing at the O2 and also the biggest in the 20-year history of the Young Voices series of concerts. 

More than two million children have taken part in a Young Voices concert and the aim is to inspire a love of music and create memories that will last a lifetime. The children performed for an audience of enthusiastic parents and family members.

Resplendent in their white Young Voices t-shirts, they performed a wide variety of material including medleys from Moana and the American Folk tradition (Yankie Doodle anyone?), rallying cries (A Little Can Change our World) and the tear-jerker (We Are the World).

The finale consisted of a medley from The Greatest Showman, which ended, fittingly, with the lyric “This is the greatest show!” But the song still rattling around people’s heads a week later is the chorus of I’m the King of the Swingers from Jungle Book!

Many thanks to Mrs Young - much lauded director, producer and voice coach – who accompanied the children. Also to chaperones Mr Munn, Miss Cooper, Rosie Dilworth, Marian Sheil Tankard and Gale Davies.
