Shropshire’s Young Voices

Two local schools joined in the world’s largest school choir in January. Children from both Morville and Brockton schools joined over 5,000 other young performers to sing as a single choir in front of a capacity crowd at Young Voices (YV) at Birmingham’s Genting Arena.

Brockton’s Kate Castle says, “YV has been arranging these events for over 20 years and in that time over 2 million children have been involved; the aim is to inspire the next generation to find their love for music. The awesome, memorable and confidence building experience will long be remembered by Brockton’s participants, staff and families.”

And Brockton pupils have also recently achieved LAMDA certificates for their performing skills, with 14 distinctions and 11 merits being awarded to Brockton children.

Morville’s Nicola Power says, “Being a part of YV provides children the opportunity to perform in some of the world’s greatest arenas alongside incredible artists. To achieve this with all their school friends around them for support helps their self-belief, self-motivation, confidence, and ability to communicate as part of a team. However, the concert is the culmination of a lot of hard work from the teachers and children!”
