Choir

Voice in a Million (VIAM) 2019

Performance at Wembley Stadium – London: Thursday, 21 March 2019 

I would like to share the following IMPORTANT information with you regarding our very exciting singing event that will be taking place next year in March 2019. 

  • Audience and Parent’s registering on the website 

Parents are now able to register on the website - https://www.voiceinamillion.com/.  If you are a choir member taking part with your school, or a member of the stage choir or a parent of either, you will find the tracks and videos on the Parent & Choir Members area. (If you haven't registered on this area, select the register button and follow the links).

VIAM and I do ask very kindly that parents and carers do register. This will enable you to access details about the event and the rehearsal materials. It will also enable VIAM to keep parents and carers informed of any updates and news etc. The Rehearsal Tracks, Video Guides and song list for the VIAM2019 choir songs are all now online.

  • Audience and Parent’s purchasing tickets 

Every year VIAM offer a 10% discount for all Parent Tickets for early bookings to secure prime seating within the venue; and the best possible view of our school group.  The deadline for this discount is midnight on the 7th October. Parents and carers can use the Parent Order Form found  in 'Your Files' tab from the website https://store.voiceinamillion.com to order their tickets. Add coupon code SCHOOL10 in the coupon code box to generate the discounted amount.

The Ticket prices are £25 plus £1.50 per seat venue fee. The discount is £2.50 per seat (note the lower priced seating option of £20 is further back in the venue; and they do not offer 'best available view for school' in this option), however they do offer the same discount if purchased before midnight on the 7th October. 

  • Transport to the venue in London

 Speaking to other schools who have done this event in the past, it is helpful and enjoyable if parents or carers that are interested to go to the event, can travel on the coaches with the choir. It especially helps coming back late at night when children are tearful and tired after such an exciting day to have a parent or carer with them. Parents are then able to go and spend the day ‘shopping’ or visiting London while the choir will be rehearsing with the rest of the groups at the venue and return when it is time for the performance. Of course, parents might choose to travel by car and I do understand that there is parking available at the venue.

If there are any parents/carers interested in sharing/travelling by coach with the choir, could you please let the office know as soon as possible to enable us to book additional coaches and also to finalise the cost per adult and child for the trip.  I am looking forward in welcoming all old and new choir members to start working on this fantastic event as well as the other performances that we have booked in for this year.

Kind regards and thank you for your support.

Mrs Suzanne Gunstone, Music Co-ordinator
