The Budehaven Voices choir have been selected by the Football Association to perform at the FA Leadership Academy Graduation 2017. This prestigious event will be taking place at St George’s Park, which is The FA’s inspirational training base and education centre located near Burton upon Trent in Staffordshire.
The graduation event will celebrate the effort and achievement of sixty youth leaders aged between sixteen and twenty-five years old across England who have complete a year-long learning and development programme. These young people all volunteer across the network of County FA Youth Council’s and they have been co-creating and co-supporting the delivery of one of The FA’s main strategic objectives: to double the player and fan base of women’s football. The FA believe strongly in empowering young people through a youth-adult partnership approach.
Budehaven Voices will be providing a 30 minute repertoire of vocal, piano and bass covers including The Fleet Foxes’ White Winter Hymnal and Michael Kiwanuka’s Love and Hate. This follows on from the choir’s highly successful tour in Italy earlier this month. The singers have worked tremendously hard this year and this is paying off through their pitch perfect harmonies, beautiful blending of voices and stunning solos. They are absolutely delighted to be asked to sing at this highly prestigious event, what a fantastic way to finish the academic year!
