The show will be consist of choirs from around the area who will all be coming together to showcase songs from Broadway shows. You can find out a little more about the choirs below:
Kaleidoscope is a community, female voice choir based in Lichfield, Staffordshire. The aims of the choir are to foster the love of singing, take singing into the community and raise money for charitable causes.
The name reflects the ethos of the choir as they include a wide variety of musical styles in their repertoire and encourage singers to join the choir from all backgrounds, of varying ages and with varied experience.
The choir is currently led by Cait Hodgkiss and members sing in 2, 3 or 4 parts.. Cait graduated from The University of Wolverhampton, with a first class honours degree in music (BMus Hons). Her time at university also led her to win the ‘Worfield Charity Concert Prize’ for Best Dissertation which was a performance of Alexander L’Estrange’s ‘Zimbe!’ conducted in Lichfield Cathedral. She is now a trainee music teacher at a local Lichfield school. Her first study instrument is voice, but she also enjoys playing the Alto Saxophone,. Cait is a classically trained singer which came from being a girl chorister at Lichfield Cathedral School. She was Head Girl in her final year at the school and she was also given the responsibility of co-leading the junior choir which urged her to complete two short courses in Makaton; Makaton for beginners and Makaton with singing. Her vocal training led her to being a peripatetic singing teacher in and around Staffordshire, and through having over ten years of experience in choirs, she has been the Musical Director for Kaleidoscope for over three years and the singing teacher at Stagecoach Lichfield for the same length of time.

Youth & Young Voices Cathedral Choir
Lichfield Cathedral Young Voices was founded in December 2008 by Cathy Lamb (Director) as part of the Cathedral’s Music Share singing outreach programme. The choir is a non-auditioned choir and meets every Saturday during term-time. The original age group intended was for 7-13 year olds, but the success has been such that we have divided into two sections – the Young Voices and the Youth Voices (directed by Ailsa Cochrane) and so the two choirs span an age range of 6-18. We are thrilled to have a young piano accompanist, who first began as a singing member, and is now our Cathedral Junior Organ Scholar. We also have several young singing leaders and the support of a superb group of adult volunteers who enable us to take part in events both in and outside the Cathedral. Past engagements have included venues such as the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.
The Half Circle Singers
Based in north Birmingham, England, Half circle singers were founded about 30 years ago by former members of the choir of Aston Parish Church and some members of the original group are still members of the choir.
The name comes from the half circle in which the original group stood when performing.
The choir’s repertoire includes both sacred and secular works of all periods, embracing both challenging classical music and light, popular songs.
