So today we say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to... well, US! 5 years ago and with just 13 people at the session, VOTT (then Voice of the Toon) formed and since then, we've gone on to swell in both numbers and number of groups! From our founding members to all our existing vocalists across our groups, we've been privileged to have amazing people with us. And whether they've been with us for short periods of time, or, in many cases, coming up to 5 years in Newcastle, over 4 years in Glasgow, 3 years in Edinburgh and 2 years in Birmingham, you and they have all contributed in ways that can't be described. The incredible ongoing support, enthusiasm and belief in what we have achieved to date (which is a lot!) and continue to strive towards, is both humbling and an amazing source of energy and strength for the future. VOTT a top bunch of people you all are! So, a huge THANK YOU to you all, to our brilliant MDs and to all those involved in the organisation in a variety of roles. Here's to the next 5 years and beyond!
