The young people of Voices for Life impress at Bath’s Holburne Museum

By Tessa Armstrong: In November Voices for Life’s children’s choir performed in front of some of Bath and Somerset VIPs including the Mayor of Bath, the Mayor of Glastonbury, the Lord Lieutenant and deputy Lieutenant of Somerset, the High Sheriff of Somerset and the Vice Chair of B&NES Council
The VIPs were guests at an evening drinks reception in the Holburne Museum. The reception was attended by supporters of the charity to celebrate this important milestone in the charity’s development, thanking supporters from Bath for all their help in developing the charity.
The children sang music composed for the charity, including We are every Child by Francis Faux and Jamila Gavin which was written in celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee and ‘Crabs’ from the musical journey Stardust by Bath’s Jools Scott and Sue Curtis. Stardust has been performed in Bath Abbey by hundreds of Bath children since the charity’s founding in 2021.
To date Voices for Life has reached more than 1,200 children from 28 schools from across Bath and Wiltshire. In 2023 the charity aims to continue its work with performances in Wells Cathedral and Bath Abbey.
A new work Extraordinary! written by Jools and Sue will be premiered bringing even more children the confidence boost and joy of singing.
Tessa Armstrong, Voices for Life Founder and Executive Director, said: “It was wonderful to introduce our new children’s choir to the charity’s fantastic supporters. We really couldn’t have reached so many children without their ongoing support, and I was delighted to be able to share this important milestone with them.”
