This term we ran community singing groups across two libraries, Forest Gate and Stratford, both in Newham. This project was led by three young artists – Itoya Osagiede, Mohan Dhar and Priscilla Hossain and funded through a small ‘Go For It’ Grant from Newham, London. This was managed by Forest Voices Community Choir and produced through Living Song CIC. The choirs shared their learning at two ‘Informances’, which included the switching on of the Christmas lights at Stratford on 1st December.
Forest Voices Community Choir has gone from strength to strength this year. They have grown to a regular 25 members, singing a wide range of repertoire from classical choral, world folk, pop and rock favourites. They have supported their local community, managing and often singing as part of the Library Choirs Project, singing for the switch on of the Forest Gate and Stratford Christmas lights; as well as raising funds for two charities, singing at the local Saturday market and on their annual ‘pub crawl’ fund raiser. If you’d like to join the choir, contact Forest Voices E7 on Facebook.
We congratulate NewYVC on another highly successful evening, led almost entirely by the young artists themselves. The audience was treated to quality solos, duets, choral and audience singing, warming the hearts of everyone present. We look forward to 2018 with great relish.
Forest Voices, based at Woodgrange Infant School, Sebert Rd, London E7, have enjoyed a short project led by Paul Watson, our local ‘Inspirational’ MD and Singing Leader. They’re learning a gospel arrangement of ‘One Voice’ among other repertoire. Watch this space for our next singing party!
