Junior Choir performs at the O2

On Thursday the 19th January, the Junior Choir went to Young Voices 2017. It was at the O2. I’d never been there before, so it was quite an experience. I think I was one of the only people from Bexley Grammar who had never been there before. It was huge, both on the inside and the outside, and the number of other children there made it seem even bigger.
 
We set off at 1 o’clock during lunchtime. We got on the coach, and there was an extremely excited atmosphere. When we arrived, we were escorted to the O2 by officials. Once inside the arena, we started rehearsing along with the other 7495 children. It sounded incredible! 
 
After the rehearsals, we had a well-deserved break and something to eat. Then the break was over, and the parents started filing in. Once we were ready to perform, the lights went down and the concert started. We sang about 10 songs, but it wasn’t just the singers: there were plenty of other performers, including world-champion beat boxers. 
 
The concert went well, but I was relieved to get home as it was so late! Thanks to all the teachers who came: we all had a great time!
