Young Voices 2017 Update
Wow! Our 46-strong group of singers from Years 4, 5 and 6 sang from the heart along with more than 5,000 other primary school children at Sheffield Arena last Thursday, for the Young Voices concert.
Just like last year, we proved just what Harehills Primary School can do and our young stars showed how well they had learnt their songs and dance moves, ready for the evening performance.
The repertoire of songs ranged from Adele’s soulful ‘Hello’ to mash-ups of rock and pop, covering tracks from the likes of Led Zeppelin and Queen as well as folk songs from the British Isles such as “Charlie is my darling” and “Skye Boat Song”.
We sang and danced with live musicians and talented artists including former X-Factor finalist, Tabby Callaghan, soul-jazz singer, Natalie Williams and the world-renowned beat box group - Beatbox Collective.
Returning back to school late that night, we were tired, happy and completely buzzing by the whole experience. Some of our children didn’t want it to stop; we’ll be sharing our Young Voices experiences in school assemblies this week and no doubt at future choir events.
Many, many thanks from Mrs Jack to all the adults and children who made this such a special event for us once again.
