American Young Voices has had monumental success for nearly 20 years in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and now it’s coming to America!
Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. American Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with live accompaniment from a diverse range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Every year, schools across the England, Ireland, Germany and the United States practise our music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. With a full live band, backup singers.
Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1.6 million dollars for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.
2014 was our largest ever concert tour with over 120,000 children taking part in the UK and Ireland in world-class arenas like The O2 in London.
“I can’t put into words how much of an amazing time we had last night. The parents were in awe of the children and the whole experience, and are already asking about next year. I would bet our chorus numbers will double once the word gets around about this experience. It was magical. We can’t wait for next year. Our kids worked really hard on this material and were really committed. Although AYV has been around for a while now I think you have tapped into something special in the US. I was there and witnessed it and I keep watching the videos because I can’t believe we were there. For one night you guys turned 3000 kids into rock stars. Thank You.” -Brian S. (Teacher, Staten Island, NY)
“Everything about this experience was just great: the material chosen, the fabulous conductor, the great band, singers and MC, the lighting, standing behind the stage and experiencing how a rock concert looks from up close and so much more. We will definitely be there EVERY YEAR!” - Dassi R. (Teacher, Oakland, NJ)
Young Voices has introduced over one million children to live music in the past 17 years. We believe passionately in inspiring the next generation to find their love for music.
All the music is specially selected and arranged to give the children the widest variety of songs to perform. We also hope that by providing a diverse range of musical styles children will learn, enjoy, and gain a greater, fuller understanding of music.
For some of the music, we provide a simple selection of dance moves that can be performed whilst singing the songs. Children and teachers particularly enjoy the combination of dancing and singing, adding an electric atmosphere or - 'tingle factor' - to the concerts.
