Fordingbridge choir to join Gareth Malone in sing-along concert
MEMBERS of a Fordingbridge choir will join forces with renowned choir director Gareth Malone for a singalong concert next month.
The recently formed Fordingbridge Sing Space choir, led by Olivia Sparkhall, is set to appear on stage with internationally acclaimed choir director, Gareth Malone in a concert at The Beck Theatre in Hayes on 22nd November.
Choir leader Olivia said: “We’re so excited to be performing with Gareth, the choir is full of his fans. And his ethos of encouraging singing for everyone really resonated with us.
“And it’s not only singers in this local choir who will get the chance to be part of the show. Sing-Along-a-Gareth invites the audience to open their lungs and join him in song.”
“What’s unique about Sing-Along-a-Gareth is the idea that the audience is part of the show.”
The Fordingbridge branch is part of a collective of choirs launched in 2020 by Olivia’s colleague, West End coach to the stars, Rachel Lynes. There are now nearly 1,500 members across England.
The choirs were founded on the belief that singing should prioritise community, mental health and inclusivity as well as bringing the highest quality and most joyful musical theatre experiences to areas that wouldn’t usually have this opportunity. They now boast an array of West End ambassadors including leading ladies Kerrie Ellis, Cassidy Janson and Alice Fearn.
Along with the Fordingbridge group members, 27 other Sing Space choirs are set to step in to support Gareth on his national tour.
