Dunottar pupils perform to an audience of thousands at the O2

28th January 20

On Wednesday 22nd January, 80 of our Year 7 pupils arrived at the O2 Arena to sing in front of an audience of thousands.

Joining school choirs from across the country, to perform songs as diverse as Kusimama, Best of West and Shiny Happy People, this was one of the biggest children’s choir concerts in the world and one of 23 concerts across England.

Guest appearances by Tony Hadley, The Shires and Ruti made this an extra-special occasion organised by Young Voices, which stages the school concerts to inspire a love of music and create memories for the children that will last a lifetime.

The concert also raised funds for Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity that provides specialist nursing care and support to young people with cancer.

Emily Pettet, Director of Music at Dunottar, said: “We had the most fantastic seats, with a birds-eye view of the singers and musicians.  It was lovely to see all our pupils so engaged, in both singing and performing the choregraphed dance moves.”
