Sing in the Vuelie children's choir!
Are you – or do you know – a young person who loves to sing? Join us for a free rehearsal aimed at all young singers (aged 4+) to learn a new children’s voice part in Vuelie, written especially for this project by composer Frode Fjellheim. No experience necessary and children don’t need to sign up to the full Vuelie project to be part of the children’s choir.
We know how hard the past couple of years have been for all young people. We want to get as many young people involved in the children’s choir as possible, so please share this page with all of the young singers in your life. You’ll recognise Vuelie from Frozen, so the children’s choir is perfect for any Disney fans! Listen to Vuelie and find out more about the full project here.
To take part in the children’s choir, all you need to do is:
1. Watch the video of our free livestreamed rehearsal to learn the children’s part
2. Send us an audio-only recording (optional!) of you singing the children’s part so we can include your voice in the final track of Vuelie
Our free children’s choir rehearsal will be livestreamed to this page on Thursday 17th February, 4pm GMT, so join us then if you’d like to watch live! The video will then be available to watch below until the project ends on Friday 4th March, 11.59pm GMT.

Submissions for the children’s choir will open after the rehearsal on Thursday 17th February and will close on Friday 4th March, 11.59pm GMT.
Recordings for the children’s choir part should be audio-only.
If you’re taking part in the full Vuelie project and learning one of the SATB parts, you can choose whether to send in a video or an audio recording.
When you’re ready to make a recording, you will need:
1. A device with a voice recorder (e.g. a phone)
2. A second device which can play a YouTube video (e.g. a computer, laptop, or tablet)
1. Set up your phone – or whatever you’re using to record your voice – so that it’s ready to record your singing. You should put it on a flat surface rather than hold it in your hand. (Tip: try recording a test clip first so you know how far away you should stand or sit when you sing!)
2. Set up your second device – your computer, laptop, or tablet – so you’re ready to press play on the learning video. Plug your headphones into this device so you can hear the guide track.
3. Press play on the learning video, following all of Jamie’s instructions – especially the clap!
4. Press record and sing your part!
Yes. If you’re under 18, we’ll ask for a parent/guardian’s consent when you upload a recording for the children’s choir.
If you’re sending a group recording for the children’s choir, it is the responsibility of the group leader to obtain necessary parental consent before making and uploading that recording.
