Junior Voices Concert at Gloucester Cathedral


Children from Primrose Hill and Winchcombe C of E Primary Academies joined members of the Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Junior Choir to perform a short concert of choral music and songs from the musicals at Gloucester Cathedral.

During the last few weeks, pupils from both academies have had the opportunity to work alongside boys from the cathedral choir and professional vocal coaches to explore how to sing well; the aim of the Junior Voices project is to encourage schools to form choirs and enjoy the benefits of group music-making. “Having worked alongside ISingpop earlier in the year and participated in the Young Voices project at the Birmingham arena, singing alongside a Cathedral Choir was a fantastic opportunity further enhanced pupils understanding of a range of musical styles.  It was lovely to see the cathedral full of families and friends who came along to hear the children perform,” said Helena Arnold, CEO of the Trust.

During the evening the choirs performed a range of music, including songs from ‘Oliver’, ‘Watership Down’ and ‘Mary Poppins’ as well as Benjamin Britten’s ‘Friday Afternoons’ and Charles Villier Stanford’s Magnificat in A. The combined choirs then came together for a grand finale, singing ‘The Circle of Life’ from the musical ‘The Lion King’.
