Local Choir to Perform With Russell Watson at Scarborough Spa

The Graham Community Choir


A local choir is to perform with Russell Watson at Scarborough Spa next month.

The Graham Community Choir will accompany Russell for a selection of numbers when he performs in The Spa’s Grand Hall on Saturday 7 March as part of his latest UK tour.

The 90 plus strong choir, who have been personally chosen by Russell, has been running for over 12 years and started life as the 'The Can't Sing Choir' which was part of the evening class programme based at Graham School.

From its humble beginnings the choir has now developed into a four part choir singing a varied mixture and popular range of music and employ an open door, no audition policy making them a genuine community choir.

The challenge of singing some operatic extracts with Russell has been embraced wholeheartedly by the choir, especially the extracts that require singing in Italian and French and extra rehearsals have been scheduled in the coming weeks.

The choir's conductor Bill Scott commented:

"I am honoured that the choir has been chosen to perform with Russell Watson, the choir are great fans of his and we shall be working very hard to sing our best for him."

"The choir is particularly enjoying singing some pieces for the concert in Italian and French and the musical challenges that they present. I am proud of the choirs continued development and achievements especially as we have so much fun doing it!"

As well as The Graham Community Choir, Russell Watson will also be joined by York Soprano Rebecca Newman.

Tickets for 'An Intimate Evening with Russell Watson' are now on sale, with tickets starting at £32.50 and are available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via www.scarboroughspa.co.uk
