“My favourite moment of UVG is when you perform because you have an amazing build up of rehearsals which in themselves are fun, then it comes to performing and you can just enjoy what you are doing and remember all the effort you put into it, its just a really lovely moment when you work so hard for something then you finally get to show an audience what you can do when you have that passion and dedication for something.
I want to just perform in general its what makes me who I am! UVG has been important to me because its really given me that confidence that I need when it comes to my voice, its also helped me to realise that actually, there are people who do think I can sing and that I am capable of anything. I am not really one for people, I can sometimes feel anxious, so being able to relax and do something I love without being uneasy just makes me so happy.
UVG is so incredibly different to other youth choirs because Amba can pull out any song and work with us to make it sound stunning and so original, not many youth choirs do a range of songs they tend to stick to one category but UVG just has such a wide range!”
