Sam Houlston will be directing and Nina Best will be Musical Director. They have produced a video outlining how we see the concert working and this is available to view on the KLOS members Facebook page. If you aren’t in the group please ask to join and I will add you. Here is the link to the video on YouTube https://youtu.be/Kk4kuBrABWM
For those of you who aren’t on Facebook or can’t access YouTube here are the main points;
The concert is open to anyone in the society and there will be no auditions for anyone wanting to be in the ensemble.
All the music will be from a musical (some from juke box musicals such as We Will Rock You)
You will need to be available for rehearsals on a Wednesday from 21st June, although some smaller group rehearsals may take place before this date
You will need to learn all the music
All the numbers will have ensemble work in them.
Dress rehearsal will be on 2nd September 2021
There will be auditions for anyone who wishes to be considered to do a solo. These will be on Sunday 16th May 2021 in Philippa Bishop’s garden, details to follow once we have the list of auditionees.
The songs that we have chosen for auditions are as follows:
'Revolting Children' from 'Matilda' (this is for 8-16 years)
I Will Survive
'Till I Hear You Sing' from 'Love Never Dies'
'Climb Every Mountain' from 'The Sound of Music'
'Don’t Even Know It' from 'Everybody’s Talking About Jamie'
One Night Only
'You’ll Be In My Heart' (Phil Collins Version) from 'Tarzan'
Any of the numbers can be used as your audition.
You will also need to prepare approx. 1 minute of any song you would really like to sing. These songs may not be used in the concert, but it will give us the opportunity to hear something more in your voice.
Children can audition for any number if they wish to be considered for another solo apart from the youth numbers.
Tickets will be on sale once the prices etc have been finalized.
Please let Phil H know on 07429095987 via text or Whatsapp or email on firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be part of the concert and if you wish to audition
It would be lovely to see as many members as possible old and new taking part. There is something for everyone.
Hope to see you all on the 16th May.
