Arts in Parliament

Youth Music Voices

Young people from all over the UK will make a contemporary mark in Westminster Hall and become part of its rich history by singing to celebrate the world coming to the host city.

With a repertoire that reflects the choir’s diversity and with a vast representation of young people from all over the United Kingdom, don’t miss this one off  opportunity to watch the full choir with live music in Westminster Hall.

Youth Music Voices

Youth Music Voices is a major project providing talented 16–21 year olds with the opportunity to join in and celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games through singing.

Comprising of a broad cultural mix of 120 young people from across the UK, Youth Music Voices provides an opportunity for singers from any social or musical background to perform at a national level.

The choir includes gospel, folk, R&B and classical singers,bringing together those with a formal musical education and those without any training. With its own style, individuality, leadership, and specially commissioned repertoire of new songs and arrangements, the young singers will be performing vibrant and exciting music throughout the Cultural Olympiad Festival in 2012 including two very special performances for the Arts in Parliament programme.
