On Monday 3rd February, pupils from Our Lady of Sion Junior School took part in the ‘Young Voices’ Concert at the O2 arena. The very excited children (and staff) joined over 8,000 other school children to form a mass choir.
Rehearsals began in September with the children learning 12 songs including a Queen Medley, a Pop Medley and songs from Tarzan, Calamity Jane and Oklahoma! As well as the amazing experience of singing at the O2 Arena, the children also got to sing with Ruti who won The Voice in 2018 and Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet.
After an afternoon rehearsing at the venue, there was an evening concert to an audience of parents, relatives and friends.
Mrs Carmody, Head of Junior School Music says,” The children have all worked so hard for this event. It was a very long day but a very memorable one! I am extremely proud of the children for performing so well and for representing Our Lady of Sion in such a wonderful way. Like many stars, we can now say we have performed at the O2 Arena!”
