Exciting news! On January 13th 2020, the children in year 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to represent the school at Young Voices. This is a concert for thousands of primary school children. It takes place at FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield and is an absolutely amazing experience. We go for an afternoon rehearsal and then the main performance is in the evening – so it is a very late return to school! Billingborough has been many times, and we are all very excited that we can go again.
Part of the music curriculum for Key Stage Two is to play and perform in ensemble contexts, using their voices with increasing accuracy, fluency and control. What better way than joining a choir of thousands of fellow children to perform to parents and friends! For children who do not want to accompany us to the arena, they will still take part in the music lessons and we will arrange an opportunity for a smaller performance at school.
Parents and carers can book tickets to be in the audience at the arena, however these have to be done quickly, as the arena act on a first come, first served basis and schools are not allocated any. Therefore I would encourage you to return your ticket request form, with payment as quickly as possible. We need these by 26th September 2019, that way we can submit the one order. Tickets will not be ordered without payment. School will not be able to order more tickets after this date. Tickets are non-refundable. Parents need to make their own travel arrangements to and from the arena. Children will travel separately and are collected from school after the event.
Children can purchase a Young Voices t-shirt for £12 and wrist bands and mini torches. If, however, you do not want to buy a t-shirt, children can wear a plain white t-shirt to the concert. If you want to order a t-shirt, please return your t-shirt form with payment by October 14th 2019. We will be asking for contributions for the coach travel nearer the time, we estimate this will be approximately £12.
Please return the attached form giving permission for your child to come to the concert on January 13th 2020 and the ticket form by NO LATER THAN September 26th 2019. All forms and payments to come to myself or Miss Gardner. You can pay by cash, cheque or BACS in the usual way.
