Young Voices International are organisers of the largest children’s choir concerts in the world and as equity partners, AOB participated in the launch of YVI’s global exploits with an inaugural concert in Trinidad & Tobago, where over 4,000 children sang at The Queen’s Park Savannah, Port of Spain. The event was supported by the Government with Digicel as sponsor and featured a headline performance by Tessane Chin, winner of “The Voice” USA TV talent show. The carnival atmosphere was unforgettable and the feedback was totally inspirational:
“The concert was a life-time experience for the children, that touched everyone’s hearts!”
In June, we went on to stage our first Young Voices concert in the USA, held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Our Conductor and Musical Director was Francisco J. Nunez who is the Director of the Young People’s Chorus of New York and one of America’s most respected conductors and composers of music for choirs. The success of this first event has already led to plans for bigger concerts at more venues next year.
The international tour continued in Germany with 10,000 children and parents at the O2 Arena in Hamburg. The event combined the essence of a Young Voices concert with local German flavour provided by German songs, talent and technicians and enjoyed celebratory coverage on national TV.
Roll on 2016…!
