On the 6th February, Year 6 took a trip to the O2 to join the Young Voices Choir. We left at 12:00 and started our journey to London. Our adventure began here. We arrived at the O2 at 12:45 and met our conductor and the rest of the choir. We began practising our favourite songs. The Urban Striders and our choreographer Andy, walked out onto the stage to help us with our dance moves. They also showed us some of their awesome moves.
After practising for a couple of hours we were allowed to start eating our tea. We went out into the hallway which was crammed with ecstatic singers. After finishing our tea we filed back into the arena ready to perform to our parents. We waited for an hour as our excited parents filled the arena. The performance started and the lights went out. Everywhere around us were pinpricks of light as the 7,981 choir members swayed their torches to the music. Halfway through the exhilarating night, one of the organisers announced that the entire Young Voices event was to raise money for two lifesaving charities, Food for All and Teenage Cancer Trust. As the night drew to a close, the amazing experience ended with an unforgettable lightshow.
Riding home on the coach, we all chatted about the wonderful happenings that we had been part of. Even though it was late we were all wide awake from the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we had just taken part in. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Gapper for accompanying us.
