It was the kind of thing dreams are made of - singing on stage at Birmingham's prestigious Symphony Hall. Some 420 members from local Got 2 Sing contemporary choirs packed the stage at the internationally renowned concert venue for their ‘Best of British’ concert, whilst supporting local charity Mary Stevens Hospice.
Beth Dunn, founder and director of Got 2 Sing, was delighted with the success of the evening and commented, “We have had tremendous support from everyone involved and my members should be extremely proud of their efforts – the performance and people’s generosity have gone far, far beyond my expectations! The Symphony Hall is also renowned for its acoustics so we couldn’t have had a better venue to do justice to all the hard work that the choirs have put in over recent months. As a non-auditioned choir that doesn't sing with music it's simply incredible to hear everyone singing their hearts out on stage and what a fantastic sound they made. It sounded amazing!”
The Stourbridge-based Hospice organised a very generous raffle which included a London Theatre Break, Spa Day and Apple iPad amongst its prizes and produced a souvenir programme for the event; raising an amazing £8781 for the charity’s funds.
Marlene Watson, representing Mary Stevens Hospice, thanked the audience for their generosity, whilst adding much humour to the evening as well as praising the volunteers and staff who work tirelessly for the charity.
The 2000 plus audience were treated to a full programme of contemporary songs from Adele, Queen and Take That, to the Beatles, Elton John and other British classics.
The choir comprised members from Stourbridge and seven other Got 2 Sing choirs from across the West Midlands, including their Youth Choir, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Hereford. They were joined by local tenor Russell Painter and dancer Amelea Rostron who performed during the choir’s haunting rendition of Karl Jenkins’ ‘Adiemus.’
