Join us for our first ever Virtual Concert – “Celebrate COS”.
As we have not been able to gather for rehearsals or performances this year, and we know you are itching to exercise those vocal chords, we would like to invite you to send in a video of yourself performing any number from a past COS or CO2 show, so that we can celebrate the times we have had together and get excited about performing again!
What do you need to do?
Complete our online interest form by Monday 16th November to register your interest, and let us know up to 3 songs you would like to perform. Once we have received all interest, and so that we can ensure there are no duplicates, you will then receive an email confirming which number we would like you to film. This will then need to be received no later than Monday 30th November.
The number can be a solo, include people from your household / bubble where appropriate or, if you are able to, include a group of people recording together virtually! (Please note, by sending a video you consent for anyone shown on camera to be uploaded online).
You will need to find your own backing track (try searching Spotify or YouTube for karaoke versions) or are very welcome to accompany yourself or include members of your family / bubble to play.
If you need some inspiration or are not sure what shows have been performed by COS/CO2 in the past, you can find an archive of programmes and information on past shows under the “shows” tab. You could also send any performance photos you might have along with your video so we can all enjoy the memories together.
The concert will be streamed and available to watch online in December.
The concert will also include a selection of numbers performed by our incredible lockdown “Isolation Choir”.
We are missing you all so much, and know that we are all desperate to support the arts and get back to doing what we have loved for so many years, so we hope to see lots of your lovely faces and hear all your beautiful voices for this very special event.
If you are not a member or haven’t renewed your membership this year but want to take part, then please still register your interest. Membership for the year is only £10 and will give you access to our members Facebook group, quarterly members newsletters, performance opportunities, reduced price workshop opportunities and social events.
If you have any more questions, or difficulty using the online form, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can!
