Two Songs, Three Months, One performance.
For one night only the Music Hall comes alive to the sound of an amateur choir competition, Hosted by Fiona Kennedy. Guest Judges have in the past included Professor Paul Mealor and Dr Roger Williams, a truly amazing evening not to be missed with all proceeds benefiting the local vulnerable people supported by VSA.
The Braeside Singers
Founded only in 2018, The Braeside Singers are a community choir open without audition for everyone. Members have a variety of personal and musical backgrounds, we aim to explore a wide range of genres and provide singers with a fun and enjoyable experience. Most of us have never sung in choirs before, some have a little more experience – that is a great mix to encourage and learn with and from each other along the journey leading to tonight’s performance.
