Members of Southend Vox were very honoured to join The Music Man Project at The London Palladium on Sunday 15th October. The Music Man Project is a music school for children and adults with learning disabilities. We sang fun, joyful, thought provoking and very moving pieces of music written by David Stanley and Jenny Hitchcock. The packed audience were taken on a rollercoaster journey that made them both laugh and cry.
The Countess of Wessex also watched the performance and the BBC filmed some of the show, parts of which were shown on television the following day. It was such an amazing, incredible and inspirational show to take part in. But of course the real stars of the show were the Music Man students, who were all superb.
If you missed it or just want to listen again, you can order a DVD, a CD, a songbook to recreate the magic at home and a lovely soft russian bear along with lots of lovely other things at the Music Man Project's website: http://themusicmanproject.com/shop/ We're now planning ahead for the huge spectacular that will be The Music Man Project at the Royal Albert Hall on 15th April 2019 - see you there!
