Hampshire Music Service Vocal Festival 2019

Velmead Voices are taking part in a Vocal Festival on 19th March 2019, at Calthorpe Park School.  Over 120 pupils from 6  local Primary Schools will take part in the Festival.  Mrs Alsion Kelly from Hampshire Music Service recently came in to work with our children to teach them some of the songs.  There are some challenging pieces to sing, this means that the children will have to work hard to remember all the words and techniques required for the final concert.

Concert for Harry 11th February 2020

On Tuesday 11th February 37 of our pupils took part in a concert for Harry, one of our children whose family are raising money to take him to the USA for surgery.  Velmead Voices and Ukulele Band performed on stage at St Philips and St James’ Church as well as Fleet Community Recorder Ensemble and Shuffletunes Choir.  The final piece in the concert was Shuffletunes Choir singing All You Need is Love, all of the children and audience joined the choir filling the church with an amazing sound. This was a wonderful community event.  At the end of the concert there were refreshments and a raffle all donated by the performers.  In total we raised £700, which is an amazing achievement in just over an hour!  Thank you to everyone for supporting this wonderful event.
