I can’t believe how quickly Nationals came around again! Little Voices got some lovely positive feedback from the Regional Festival and we were invited to Nationals for the 2nd year running. New set list, some new members and of course I had to make a new dress for me! HYS Juniors joined us this year too, so it was double the fun!
The Juniors’ set list included When I Grow Up from Matilda with some gorgeous solos from four members of the group, and a very emotional performance of True Colours. Little Voices sang songs with an ‘around the world’ theme. Saying Hello Around The World was written by yours truly with a musical theatre feel, and my clever little people sang the Rainbow Song in French! Must admit I had a little moment whilst watching them as they unfolded a huge fabric rainbow to finish the set, and singing so sweetly. I was so proud of both choirs.
Music for Youth is an amazing event, and the Fringe Festival is open to all musical groups even if they weren’t invited to perform on one of the main stages, so no one is left out.Our day saw us perform on the magnificent Symphony Hall stage, trot over in convoy to the wonderful Town Hall acoustics for the Juniors, and then back to the middle of the two to sing once again in the fringe tents! We definitely made the most of the day.
I can’t thank all the parents that came as chaperones enough for their help and being able to give of their time. Our pianist Richard Nimmo was amazing too, and without James and Jo Lewis there would be no choir at all! I’m honoured to be part of such a fantastic team.
Come on Albert Hall…you know you want us! 🙂
Tonight we had our end of year concert where the Little Voices, Juniors and Seniors of Huddersfield Young Singers performed for a full audience. Well done to everyone for a very musically successful year!
