Music For Youth 2011
Next week sees the six day Music for Youth National Festival take place in Birmingham, and, for one local choir, it will be the culmination of a fantastic year.
The Four Oaks Cluster Choir will perform at Symphony Hall this week
The Four Oaks Cluster Choir, made up of pupils from twelve Sutton Coldfield schools,
has been selected to perform at Symphony Hall on Tuesday July 5th.
They are the only Birmingham choir to have reached this stage, and were widely praised by judges when they performed at the Regional Festival back in February.
This performance comes after a year which has seen the choir - which includes around 65 nine to twelve year olds - perform at venues such as Lichfield Cathedral and Adrian Boult Hall.
During their set at Symphony Hall they will perform three pieces, including Elton John's Circle of Life, Journey's Don't Stop Believing and a new piece entitled Children are the Future of the World.
There is also a chance that their run of success could continue - some performers from National Festival week will be selected to play at the School Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
