Young Voices 20th Birthday Concert
On Wednesday the 2nd of March Westbourne Primary school choir went on our first adventure. For the last 9 months we have be practicing really hard to learn lots of songs and dances that we needed to attend the Young Voices 20th birthday concert at Manchester MEN Arena. The children have given up their own time in lunch times and after school to work with the teachers to learn and practice these songs. The children all sounded wonderful, danced beautifully and behaved impeccably.
Teachers from other schools commented on the children’s brilliant behaviour, beautiful singing voices and their knowledge of the songs and dances.
We are so proud of how hard the children have worked and were so pleased to share this fantastic experience with them. We have only been a choir for just over a year but it has been a real joy to see the children develop in their confidence and their ability in that time. Thank you to all the parents for your support and for attending the concert and final thank you to the Young Voices Trust that supported our choir with a grant to help get to the children. Well done Westbourne Choir we are so proud of you!
