Location: California, USA
A great youth choral group from Essex, UK -- Southend-on-Sea Boys and Girls Choirs-- is looking for a concert opportunity and home stays for 2 nights (28/29 of July, 2012) in Washington, DC. The singers are ages 12-19. Cantabile Youth Singers of Silicon Valley that I direct had a pleasure of hosting Southend choirs in the summer 2010 and in July 2011 our 45 singers travelled to the UK. We performed with the Southend Choir, stayed with host families and even watched them perform at the 2011 Proms at the Royal Albert Hall!
They are traveling again -- this time to the East Coast of America. Their repertoire includes much of the major choral repertoire, including Mahler Symphonies, War Requiem, Symphony of Psalms, Carmina and much more. Choir's Honorary Presidents are Sir David Willcocks and Bob Chilcott, both of whom they have worked with. Please have a look at their website - www.southendchoirs.org.uk They would of course love to host your choir should you have any plans to tour to the UK.
I hope that those of you in Washington would consider this request. You will love the singers and their conductors! Southend choir tour starts in Virginia Beach and continues choir and into Washington for just 2 nights, 28th & 29th July 2012.
Please, reply either to me, Elena Sharkova (firstname.lastname@example.org) or directly to Roger Humphrey, artistic director of Southend-on-sea choirs (email@example.com)
