Many thanks to CILIP who contacted Living Song last month, asking us to provide a special performance for the launch of National Libraries week on Tues 9th Oct. Our Young Artists performed at the House of Commons, Portcullis House, Westminster for an audience of MPs, Librarians and other important guests. NewYVC Senior Artists sang a range of a capella repertoire, including a South African medley, a Michael Jackson song and Higher and Higher, by Jackie Wilson. The audience clearly enjoyed the performance and spent time afterwards talking with members of the group. The organiser said: “A huge thank you to you and the choir for an incredible performance at the House of Commons on Tuesday. What a spectacular event that was made so special by the choir’s outstanding performance which brought joy to everyone in the room. It created such a fantastic atmosphere and lots of people told us how much they had enjoyed the performance and getting to meet and speak to members of the choir”. Natalie Jones.
