Funky Voice's Colchester NHS Choir
Now in their 14th year, the award winning Funky Voices ® show how breath-taking collective voices sound and feel for both the singers and audience; creating mashups and medleys of classic well known tracks with added twists. With hundreds of singers they offer experiences ranging from performance opportunities, chances to travel the world, recording albums, TV and radio appearances and also perform alongside hugely established music artists.
Since March 2020, they have provided over 400 online rehearsals, re-released our 3 charity singles, featured on BBC News, created 2 “World Choirs” and won 2 choir competitions, attracting attention online resulting in being invited to sing on tour with Supertramp, there’s also a rumour of a gig with a very famous group at the O2 London this year. Sandra, MD of Funky Voices also launched an NHS Choir Online; free for NHS employees and attracting hundreds week-after-week from all over the UK to ‘let off steam’ and experience that ‘feel good factor’.
The Colchester Anti Loo Roll Brigade contacted Sandra at the start of 2021 suggesting a live and in-person NHS Choir performance as a highlight of the Festival where the audience can show their appreciation for all their care, time and hard work. Reaching out to the local carers and rehearsing a handful of times, today we are excited to present to you Colchester NHS Choir.
