Happy Christmas and New Year from the Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs

The Southend Boys’ and Girls’ Choirs have had some wonderful concerts and performances this Christmas. One of the highlights for 70 singers was the opportunity for them to perform with one of the country’s top professional orchestras, The Philharmonia Orchestra, at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The choir received much acclaim from the orchestra and conductor at this performance, performing to an audience of several thousand. In addition the young singers have been singing carols to diners at London’s Claridges Hotel, raising funds for the Southend Hospital and performing at major London Churches including St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square. The Christmas concerts have involved all the singers, both young and older, and Chorus Sirenum, the chamber choir formed of former Girls’ Choir singers also performed their own concert with the Southend Young Men’s Chorus.
The choirs are always keen to hear from young singers wanting to join the choirs, and offer opportunities to all singers from the age of 6 upwards. For more information visit http://www.southendchoirs.org.uk
