Children at St Julian’s School in Wellow have been given the opportunity to take part in the new ‘Voices for Life’ project.
Voices for Life a new Bath-based charity enabling primary school aged children to be the best they can be at school by providing them with fun opportunities to express themselves through music, singing and confidence coaching, building their self-esteem and confidence.
The organisation was founded during the Covid pandemic to encourage music and wellbeing in young people.
St Julian’s School Headteacher, Ruth Noall, said: “Our Year 4 and Year 5 children have taken part in their first workshop for Voices for Life, a wellbeing and singing Oratorio project that aims to support children’s confidence through singing.
"The children will take part in weekly workshops over the summer term and into the autumn term, preparing for a performance in October 2021 at the Bath Abbey accompanied by a professional orchestra - The Bristol Ensemble. This is an amazing opportunity paid for by the Voices for life charity and Erasmus.”
Voices for Life work in collaboration with composer, Jools Scott, and librettist, Sue Curtis to produce exciting and fun songs and choral works. These are carefully created to help give children a renewed sense of confidence in themselves as well as experiences that will live with them forever.
