Wednesday, 29 January saw 30 members of the WHGS KS2 Choir sing as part of an 8,625 strong choir of young people in the 47th Young Voices performance at the MEN Arena. This was a record breaking night, as it makes Young Voices the most frequent performer at the Arena - pushing Take That off the top spot!
The night itself was magical. The programme not only featured 14 fabulous and specially arranged pieces - including Country, Pop and Queen Medleys - but we also got the chance to sing alongside Ruti - the 2018 Voice winner, The Shires - the most popular British country duo and, most amazingly, Tony Hadley, former Spandau Ballet front man and now star in the West End.
As if this wasn't enough, we also performed with Urban Strides, the street dance collective, had our own routines and moves and enjoyed the prowess of a full live band.
The WHGS pupils were an absolute credit to their parents and the school. They sang, danced, cheered and performed with gusto - even though some could barely stand up with tiredness by the time we got back to school! This is definitely one of the musical highlights of the calendar!
What an experience!
