A Broadway Christmas
‘A Broadway Christmas’ has been our very first project and it’s fair to say, we couldn’t have wished for better! We had 2 goals in mind: firstly, to spread a little joy through singing; and also to give as many Arts professionals as we could the opportunity for paid work during what has been such a tough year.
Over 4 virtual rehearsals in November 2020, we have had the privilege of working with over 150 singers (ranging from age 5 to 95!) from all across the world, enjoying some festive cheer and creating some community spirit in the way that only singing in a choir can!
We have also been so lucky to work alongside some of the best in the industry - with our partners The ‘West End of Wales’ orchestra, we were able to pay over 30 professionals for their time, skill and expertise, ranging from musicians and orchestrators to audio and video engineers. For so many, the impact of COVID-19 has decimated their livelihoods and we are so proud to have assisted them in some small way.
This project couldn’t have happened without the time, help, and dedication of so many people, and we are forever grateful to them all. A few weeks after the video was released we were delighted to hear the amazing news that we had won the David Taylor Classical Music Award for 'Best Virtual Project'.
