From their website:

Our chorus ranges from 4,500 to 8,500 children, all performing at the same time to a sold-out audience of friends and family. 

American Young Voices has had monumental success for nearly 20 years in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and now it’s coming to America!

Nothing can prepare you for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. American Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with live accompaniment from a diverse range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.

Every year, schools across the United Kingdom practise our music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. With a full live band, backing singers, it makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine.

Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1.6 million dollars for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.

2014 was our largest ever concert tour with over 120,000 children taking part in the UK and Ireland in world-class arenas like The O2in London.
