Meredale Choir sing their hearts out at the 02

Meredale Choir were lucky enough to be part of this year's Young Voices Choir, which meant being given the opportunity to perform at the 02. Schools from across the country came together to sing in unison at the packed out venue.  A massive well done to every single member of Meredale Choir who sung through-out the night perfectly.

Here are some words from Year 6 Choir Member, Shreya Vassa:

"I thought that the Young Voices experience was extraordinary, it was like a once in a life time opportunity for children to go to the 02 and sing. There were also some amazing performances for us to see".
