The St Edward’s Year 6 Choir were privileged to attend the ‘Voice in a Million’ concert yesterday. The boys travelled in to Wembley Arena to take part in this fantastic event.
Voice in a Million was set up in 2009; as a promoter of school / singing events, with an under-pinning message that raises awareness of the plight of children in care and the importance of Adoption and Fostering, both in the UK and worldwide.
Now celebrating its tenth year, Voice In A Million presents an opportunity of a lifetime for school children from all backgrounds throughout the UK to come together united in song and perform in front of their own family and friends and indeed members of the general public.
VIAM fully endorses not just the psychological benefits to children who are actively encouraged to participate in music-based activities, especially singing, but also the health benefits and the intrinsic feeling of belonging that a choir can bring to a child.
Joining over 5,000 pupils from all different schools, our Year 6 Choir had an excellent time, singing and soaking up the atmosphere. Mrs Hagyard is quoted as saying “It was the highlight of my year…. for the next 2 weeks anyway!”
