In October 2016, the ladies of the Training Choir were privileged to take part in the recording of the soundtrack for Channel 4’s ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’. Aired for the first time on Christmas Day 2016, the short film followed the intrepid adventures of siblings Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog, who decided one day to go on an adventure in search of bears.

The original score was composed and conducted by multi-award-winning orchestrator Stuart Hancock (Atlantis, Snapshot Songs) and was recorded at Abbey Road Studios with City of London Sinfonia. Since its airing in December 2016, the film has won a number of awards, including the Jerry Goldsmith Award for ‘Best Score for a Short Film – Stuart Hancock (Composer) and Music + Sound Awards, International for ‘Best Original Composition – Short Film’.
We look forward to future recording projects and the opportunities and unique experiences they bring to the members of London Youth Choir.
