Pupils from Frieth School took part in this year’s Young Voices, the largest school choir concert in the world. They were among 6,500 children who sang and danced with incredible enthusiasm at the event at the Birmingham Genting Arena, cheered on by their families.

MOBO award winner Natalie Williams had the crowd on their feet as she sang a classic Nina Simone song with the children as her backing singers. Frieth danced with Urban Strides and become beatbox performers alongside world champion trio the Beatbox Collective.

Headteacher Jo Reid said: “Young Voices provides an amazing and inspirational opportunity for a choir in a small village primary school to experience singing with a massed choir. The outstanding quality of the solo performers that they not only got to hear but to accompany will be a musical event I am sure they will never forget and will hopefully encourage a lifelong participation in music. We work hard to provide our pupils with a wide range of exciting extra-curricular opportunities and our children could not have made us more proud!”

The proceeds from Young Voices supports music therapy charity Nordoff Robins.
