Choir sought to share Phoenix stage with Blake

A BRIT award-wining classical group is searching for a choir to join them on stage in Blyth.

Blake’s nationwide search for local choirs to join them as part of their Autumn tour was such a success that the classical foursome have decided to extend the search for their 2011 tour.

Blake are looking for a local choir to perform on stage with them at the Phoenix Theatre in Blyth, on June 10.

Choirs who would like the chance to join Blake on stage should send a YouTube video link of the choir performing to accompanied by a short description of the choir.

One choir will be chosen and will join the group on stage to perform some of their well known classic-pop renditions, including Jerusalem and Nessun Dorma.

Baritone Stephen Bowman said: “We’ve always believed that choirs are totally essential to the future of British music, and we’re proud to be getting great choirs up on to some of the UK’s finest stages to show our audiences who the next wave of great performers might be.”
