Young voices in fine voice as organisation set to grow
They make children’s dreams come true by staging massive arena concerts for school choirs, now the Cardiff-based organisation is looking to the future with the expansion of its engagement through music philosophy.
Over the past 20 years, Young Voices has staged full scale arena concerts with first class production values nationwide. Over 2 million children have sung at a Young Voices concert since then.
Young Voices currently holds 22 concerts per year at major UK venues (London – O2 Arena, Birmingham – Genting Arena, the Manchester Arena and the Sheffield Arena) where children perform alongside artists including Alexandra Burke, Katherine Jenkins, Tom Jones, Joss Stone and Gary Barlow. Advised by Blake Morgan, they’re looking to expand this and encourage more children to get singing.
Managing Director Ben Lewis said: “We’re passionate about the work we do, we think education and engagement through music is really important for children. It gives them confidence and our concerts are a really special day for kids and their families.”
Family run Young Voices was recently supported by NatWest and Finance Wales.
“We’re really pleased to be in a position to expand yet further thanks to the support of Finance Wales, NatWest and our advisers. We’re already operating internationally and we’re planning on offering more children the ability to sing on world class stages,” added Ben.
Finance Wales Investment Executive Ruby Harcombe said: “Ben and the Young Voices family have been inspiring children and breathing confidence into school choirs for over two decades. We’re really pleased we’ve been able to support them as they expand the opportunities offered by their unique organisation yet further.”
Robert Cherry, corporate partner at Blake Morgan said: “It has been a real pleasure to get to know Ben and the team at Young Voices. The experience that young people benefit from is incredible and we are delighted to be supporting the organisation as it develops throughout the UK.”
