Hello to all choir members and anyone who would like to join! As you probably know we are not able to meet as a choir at the moment but there are some great things I want to tell you about!
First the sad news - there will be no Young Voices concerts in January 2021
But now the great news - Young Voices will be performing at the Resorts World Arena on Thursday 24th June! (subject to all sorts of things...).
So now is the time to practise the songs, the moves and enjoy Young Voices at home. All the dance videos and music videos are available in The Music Room on the Young Voices website - https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/music-room should take you there. The password is YV2021.
Have a great time singing those amazing songs and dancing with Andy, and as soon as we can reopen choir again, I will let you know!
Keep singing! (quietly and in your own home or garden!)
Choir Session 4th June
What a lovely session today - so nice to see our regulars joining me and Miss Pretty for a great sing-song. I was a bit late joining today due to technical problem but I think I have a solution for that now!
Please send me any suggestions for choir to sing to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will have a listen and try to get appropriate videos or backing tracks for us to use.
Remember anyone can join choir whenever they like. Just drop me an email on email@example.com and I'll send you the details.
Here are links to some of the songs we have been singing, and a couple of new ones to learn.

The Power In Me! Young Voices at Home Tuesday 2nd June 2.30pm
Today is the day when thousands of children all over the UK, USA, Canada,Australia and numerous places elsewhere in the world come together (virtually) to sing The Power In Me!
This is the link for the performance track on Youtube.
You can also find out more information on the Young Voices Facebook page.
The performance video includes an introduction from Gigi, a physical warm up with Andy and vocal warm ups with David and Francisco - to get you ready for your big performance!
It would be fantastic if you could record yourself singing along to the track and we could publish some of the videos here (with parental permission of course)! I will be recording myself of course!
Have you got...THE POWER IN ME! 2.30pm this afternoon!
Welcome to our Choir page!
We are delighted to have an enthusiastic choir at Abbeywood, run by Miss Resuggan and Mrs Frost on a Thursday lunchtime. We've performed at various venues including Symphony Hall Birmingham, the Palace Theatre Redditch and local venues like Willow Trees Centre, St Stephen's Church and Beoley Church Fete. But the highlight of our singing year is when we perform at the Resorts World Arena Birmingham with up to 8000 other children in the Young Voices concerts - an amazing and unforgettable performance!
At the moment of course, we are unable to run choir in the usual way, so we have launched the Abbeywood Virtual Choir. We meet online every Thursday during term time for about 40 minutes. If your child would like to join the virtual choir, please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send joining instructions.
At the moment we are busy practising The Power in Me by Rebecca Lawrence in preparation for the Young Voices at Home Power in Me challenge on Tuesday 2nd June at 2.30pm.
