Our last Academy Council meeting was held on Thursday 4th February. Please view the link below to read the minutes from the meeting.
More than 45 Solebay pupils participated in the Young Voices event at the O2 on Friday. An amazing time was had by all – and the photo below give a sense of the occasion and the atmosphere. Solebay pupils are developing into outstanding musicians!
Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance. With a full live band, backing singers and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence, the concert was an extremely exciting and memorable musical experience for all.
Micah, a Solebay pupil, commented that, “The concert was definitely one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done in my whole, whole life and history! I wish I could sing at the O2 every year!” Micah’s mother added, “I thought the concert was stunning! I found the occasion very emotional listening to the 7548 children’s voices singing all together and having so much fun. I am sure that it would have made a very deep and lasting impression on all the children. It was definitely a very proud and precious moment to see my child involved. A treasured memory that will never be forgotten.”
