Wolverhampton Music Service’s Youth Choir have been selected to perform alongside the prestigious City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for 2 Christmas shows.

11 to 18 year olds from schools across Wolverhampton will be part of My Christmas Orchestral Adventure, which is being held at The Civic at The Halls Wolverhampton on Sunday 17 December, with performances at 1pm and 5pm.

Youth Choir Director Phaedra Nicholls said “We’re very proud to be able to show off the talents and hard work of the Youth Choir, and we are extremely excited to be part of such a fun and enjoyable show.

“Working with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is a great opportunity for the Youth Choir, and members are loving rehearsing festive favourites such as White Christmas and Jingle Bells.”

The show involves zipping around the world on an orchestral adventure to track down Father Christmas. Along the way the audience will ice skate on frozen lakes, go on a sleigh ride and enjoy a white Christmas, with music including Sleigh Ride, William Tell, The Nutcracker, E.T., It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Harry’s Wonderous World, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Mother Goose, songs from Home Alone and many more.

Councillor Jacqui Coogan, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Work, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our young choristers to perform with the world renowned City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on the hallowed stage at The Halls – and to make it a Christmas to remember, not just for them, but for their audiences too.”

Wolverhampton Youth Choir rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 5.30 to 7.30pm at Wolverhampton Music Service. The choir is open to new members from Year 5 to Year 13, and no experience is necessary.
