Young Voices Concert 2022 - Celebrating 25 years!!

On Friday the 6th May, this year's Young Voices concert finally went ahead in the 02 arena; after a long delay and 2 years of cancellations due to the world pandemic. It was a hugely emotional experience for all! Miss Simiou, Mrs Tomkins, Mrs Palmer and Miss Wotherspoon from MCA took 42 eager Year 5 and 6s to the 02 to perform this year's songs; including a never before performed song, written for the event; "Sing from your Heart" - and they really did!! The programme this year was rousing, exciting and diverse and the children loved performing songs with different languages and accents like "O Fortuna" in Latin, "Mambo Italiano" (does what it says on the tin!) and the Medley from "The Lion King", with its roots in African culture; there was even a medley from "The Muppets"! Our 46 staff and children shared the 'stage' with over 7300 pupils, from 144 schools, singing their hearts out and dancing alongside Urban Strides, a world class street dancing company and school; we even had a wave at our fellow Trust school CGPS while we were there! MCA's team did us proud and our parents were delighted to be able to support us. We can't wait for next year!!
