The performers sign-up form for our free-to-view public bandstand performance is now live.
Creative director Louise Roberts and Musical Director Issie Osbourne are planning ensemble and small group numbers but as with the previous two years the main input from this show will come from individual performers. Sign up with up to two proposed songs you would like to sing as a solo and/or duet. Musical Theatre classic or something a little more contemporary: we are open to suggestion but Louise and Issie are keen to put together a setlist of “West End and Broadway ‘Bangers'” that will have broad appeal to Sunday afternoon park attendees, and which will be musically effective with piano accompaniment. You can take part just in the ensemble, just as a soloist, or both.
Ensemble rehearsals will be on Tuesdays 17th and 24th May 19:00-21:00 at Pollyanna Dance Studios, Wapping. Vocal parts will also be recorded and music available, so if you cannot attend one, other or both of these dates but are confident in learning your part independently then please do still consider taking part.
There will be space for up to 9 performers to attend an optional workshop of their solo/duet on Saturday 21 May from 14:00. Other soloists may choose to prepare their song independently of this workshop rehearsal.
Call times will be from 12 noon on Sunday 29 May for soundchecks and general preparation. All performers are required to be a full member of Geoids (at £20 for the year) on this date whether by renewal or initial payment.
In the case of an overwhelming number of expressions of interest we may need to take applications on a first-come first-served basis, so do ponder quickly and sign up ASAP. Any questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
