AOB’s co-venture with the annual Young Voices series of the world’s largest children’s mass choir concerts returned in January 2019. Dates were staged in Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester and 7 nights at London’s O2 Arena where a chorus of over 8,800 children performed on the final, memorable night. In addition to the Young Voices Children’s Choir comprising different primary school choirs on each night, the concerts featured stellar performances by Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Beau Dermott, Basement Jaxx vocalist Sharlene Hector and former Spandau Ballet frontman, Tony Hadley. The concert programme closed with a “Greatest Showman” theme with songs sung by the guest performers, a medley sung by the children and a specially recorded message from Hugh Jackman himself exhorting the children to share the greatest gift of happiness.
The American Young Voices series returns stateside in the Spring at venues in the New York, Boston, Washington DC and Philadelphia areas.
