NewYVC rehearsal have continued through to summer term on Zoom, in spite of the lockdown. More than half of the choir are managing to overcome the challenges of finding quiet space at home, limited internet speeds and having the necessary device available to join the Zoom sessions. The senior members, our Young Artist team focused on completing a song they began writing collaboratively before the lockdown. The song was inspired by the bravery of Malala Yousufsai in her campaigning for all girls to have the right to education, as well as other ‘strong hearts, strong minds’. The young artists performed the song from their homes and a young film maker at Tiramisu made the film.
We congratulate NewYVC on another highly successful evening, led almost entirely by the young artists themselves. The audience was treated to quality solos, duets, choral and audience singing, warming the hearts of everyone present. We look forward to 2018 with great relish.
After the success of hosting Peace In Every Voice at Southbank in July (film to follow), we hope many more young singers from the massed NewYVC Unite will come and join the main choir. This year, once again, they will be developing their singing techniques, singing a wide range of music and creating music together for fun and for performance. Some of the young music mentors will be promoted to the role of young artists and those who are ready will be invited to become new young music mentors.
