Like live music, live performances and demonstrations from local schools, clubs and businesses are also on offer at Invasion Colchester. We are really pleased to announce that Stagecoach Colchester will be returning to perform for us again, and this year we are excited to welcome the Funky Voices choir!
Running for more than 16 years, Stagecoach Colchester Theatre Arts School provides drama, dance and singing classes for children aged 4 up to 15+, setting high standards and helping the students work hard to achieve them, but always with a huge sense of fun and enjoyment. No audition is required for new students - all they need is enthusiasm, commitment and a love of the performing arts!
The award winning Funky Voices was founded and launched in 2007 by Sandra Colston (Musical Director) …to meet a need in the community for something fresh and new, a choir that sing modern music that can be enjoyed by everyone, no audition and no experience needed. Funky Voices sets itself apart from other community choirs offering singers a multitude of varied experiences ranging from once in a lifetime performance opportunities, chances to travel the world and also take part in the recording of albums. Every singer has the fantastic opportunity to learn up to 50 songs per year, perform at over 100 events, tour and compete in music festivals local and worldwide, record multiple albums for iTunes, appearances on TV and radio and perform alongside hugely established music artists. All Funky Voices singers are given these incredible opportunities, although everyone is more than welcome to take as little or as much out of their experience as they would like to.
Make sure you check out both of these brilliant organistations, the performances are bound to be amazing!
