Young Voices 2015

Young Voices 2015 was a tremendous success this year with the Culloden choir joining 8000 children from schools across the country for the concert at the 02 Arena last Friday January 30th. Our pupils worked tirelessly to prepare the material, giving up their own time to learn all the songs and dance moves. Their hard work was rewarded when it all came together in what was a magical performance. Well done everyone – we can’t wait to do it all again next year!


The view of all the schools arriving for the concert – exciting!
