Beat those January blues by attending an exciting new musical event to celebrate Southampton.
ReesLeisure, in collaboration with Showcase Performance Company, have created an impressive set list to be performed by a range of Southampton based societies. One of the groups taking part are Southampton Choral Society (pictured above), a fun-loving choir with over 100 members. Ruth Leu, from the Society’s committee explained: “Following past performances with Carlos Acosta and Russell Watson, Southampton Choral Society are delighted to be returning to the Mayflower stage for the city’s Celebration Proms. We look forward to a fantastic evening and wish all involved in the ABP Southampton Marathon every success.”
On Sunday 23rd April (St. George Day), ReesLeisure will host Southampton’s first full length Marathon. Thousands of people and families are expected to take part in a day of fantastic running events. Following 2 hugely successful ABP Southampton Half Marathon events in 2015 & 2016, the vision for Southampton Celebration Proms is to celebrate the 2017 event with a promotional video, created by Southampton’s people, filled with flag waving, dancing and singing.
With a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ theme in mind, over 300 performers will turn out to perform 2 hours of music from world famous artists, including inspiring music from Queen to Imagine Dragons. Performers will join forces with the audience to sing and wave flags to Elgar’s famous ‘Land of Hope & Glory.’ Filmed live, the content will be edited and shared through numerous channels to highlight and celebrate all things Southampton.
The show will raise money for Mayflower Engage, the theatre’s outreach project, meaning Mayflower will continue to reach thousands of young people every year with their educational and inspirational access to performing arts.
Southampton Celebration Proms is on the 29th January. Tickets are now on sale from the Mayflower Theatre and a group discount for groups of ten or more is in place. Other confirmed performers include, Southampton Ukulele Jam, Showcase Philharmagic Orchestra and Southampton Musical Society (pictured below).
