What an amazing event to be part of!
Today, 9 members of choir spent the afternoon rehearsing at Leeds Arena before performing as part of a massed schools choir in an incredible concert at the First Direct Arena, to begin Leeds Youth Music Festival. The children sang Power in Me, Refuge, a medley from Matilda, and a specially commissioned song, The Future's In Our Hands. Alongside them were performances from City of Leeds Youth Orchestra, City of Leeds Jazz Rock Orchestra, Thunder Taiko Drummers, Raven Percussion, Roots Alive, the Samba Band, secondary school choirs from Woodkirk, Roundhay and Cockburn, Junior Conservatoire's Hole In The Ceiling Group and DJ School's Beat It Team with the Corpus Rappers.
With video screen projections and pyrotechnics to complement the amazing musicianship being showcased, it truly was a special evening.
