Tell us about the choir
“Young Voices of Dubai (YVD) was founded in 2005. We were a group of mums looking for a choir for our children – one that was affordable yet delivered on quality and commitment. We wanted our kids to be more sensitive to the needs of the less privileged, and to use their talents to contribute to the community. So rather than wait for the platform to come along, we decided to create one ourselves.”
How can kids join?
“We hold open auditions for children between the ages of six and 18 at the start of the year. We keep an eye out for children with a musical background and those who have a passion for singing, music and performance.”
What type of songs do you sing?
“Our repertoire last year showcased music from a wide variety of movies – Frozen was an obvious choice. The kids suggested a One Direction medley and then there was lots of music from Disney. This year, we’ve selected popular folk songs from around the world. To conclude the concert, we will present a finale song, Feliz Navidad, which will feature the entire choir on stage.”
Why should kids join?
“With every concert, we aim to better our previous act, adding quality and variety to the performances. Our desire to use the concert platform to raise awareness is a vital part of what we do.”
