Southend Vox entertained with a fun-packed afternoon of songs at one of our favourite venues, The Bandstand at Priory Park in Southend-on-Sea, on Sunday 25th June 2017.
Old favourites along with our new exciting repertoire echoed around the park, while an audience of all generations relaxed with picnic blankets and deck chairs under shady tress. The sun shone creating a perfect summer's afternoon for the free concert, as the crowds enjoyed songs new and old, led by our fantastic and dedicated new musical director Katie McEwan.
Soloists Sharyn, Jenny and Mel performed beautifully and entertained brilliantly with a variety of different songs, along with duets from Sarah-Jane and Liz, Jenny and Hannah and Elanor and Kerry, and a small ensemble of Jan W, Dawn, Gemma, Tina, Elanor and Mel.
Jo Human, our new musical director for Southend Vox Chamber Choir, brilliantly conducted the smaller group through Rumour Has It, God Only Knows and Come Rain or Come Shine.
A thoroughly good time was had by all and enjoyable memories made and shared by everyone. A date in the diary for next year is a definite must.
