Performers hit right note

Tettenhall College’s choir has led to them being selected for a national festival. The group, Bella Voce, took part in the regional heats of Music for Youth, a festival which saw judges listen to 40,000 performers in 8,000 groups across the country. Bella Voce consists of Year 7 to 13 girls and for the competition they performed ‘Skylark’, capturing the 1940s feel of when the song was written. Judges praised their harmonies and original style and the pupils are delighted to have been awarded a place at the national festival.

Director of music at the school Catherine Douglas said, “Bella Voce took to the stage alongside other established choirs and groups, performing with a confidence and professionalism which belied their relative inexperience in this field. I’m extremely proud of all our young singers.”
The National Music for Youth Festival showcases the very best brass, classical, folk, choral and contemporary renditions from the UK’s leading young musicians and takes place at Birmingham’s CBSO centre from 4 to 8 July.
