In 2015 the Youth Choir were asked if they would like to perform at the Leeds City Variety Music Hall with Jonathan Antoine, the young classically trained tenor who rose to fame after appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2012, as one half of the duo Jonathan and Charlotte. Jonathan has since forged an incredibly successful solo career, so to be asked to sing with him was such a privilege!
On 9th November a very excited Youth Choir travelled to Leeds, but during rehearsals it became clear that Jonathan was unwell and the concert sadly had to be postponed. Not to be daunted the choir decided to entertain the arriving audience and passersby outside with an impromptu rendition of some of their songs, much to the delight of the assembled crowd.
Thankfully Jonathan made a full recovery and the Youth Choir finally accompanied him on 18th January 2016 singing Paris Angelicas, Ave Maria and Some Enchanted Evening.
What a fabulous experience for them, and such a lovely and incredibly talented young man!
