Young Voices sing alongs:

Have a look on You Tube for "Young Voices Elevensies".  There are various clips of people you will recognise from Young Voices concerts, and maybe some new singers.  They will lead you through different warm ups and teach you new songs as well as some old favourites.  This first one is a definite favourite:  Power in Me!

Elevenses with David Lawrence 2nd April

Join the Young Voices Principal Conductor David Lawrence for a session of vocal warm ups and learn to sing a YV favourite - 'Power in Me' by Rebecca Lawrence

Here, you can learn "Birdhouse in your Soul" by They Might Be Giants.  (If you have seen the film Coraline, then you will know this group because They Might Be Giants wrote the music for that film.)

"The only thing better than singing is more singing."

Ella Fitzgerald

In the past few years, Oak Tree Choir have taken part in the Cool Choirs singing festival at the Old Library in Mansfield.  Each choir chooses a decade and they sing 5 songs from that decade.  Our choir have sung songs from the 1960s, the 1970s and the 1980s.

Have a sing along with the lyrics below.  There is a YouTube link with each songs so that you can do some research and listen to the original songs.  See if anyone at home has heard of these musicians.  Maybe they can tell you about other songs that these artists have written and sung.
