Our 7th annual Choir Festival! And this year we’ve gone all BROADWAY!
Come and join us for a day of expert singing workshops led by our special guest Wayne Ellington!
Wayne’s singing career began at a very early age in church, where he sang in a group alongside his siblings. It was obvious that young Wayne had a natural flair for singing, and he was encouraged to perform at every opportunity. It wasn’t long before Wayne was joining choirs, singing solo, and developing skills that would serve him well in later years.
Wayne further honed his talent when he attended Brunel University studying a BMus in Music and Art, gaining the prestigious and coveted Sheridan Instrumental Prize for Outstanding Singing and Musicianship in the process.
Wayne’s career in the arts is extensive and has seen him performing in musicals, providing backing vocals for recording artists, singing internationally with choirs, delivering singing workshops, running vocal coaching classes and working in schools. He has stood on the stage with well established artists such as Blur and even Pope St John Paul II. He has worked all over the world and has become an international vocal coach that is in high demand.
Wayne is the founder of Manchester Inspirational Voices, a vibrant community choir based in the heart of Manchester, and has been directing them for the past 12 years. This year, the choir succeeded in reaching the finals of the Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year. The choir is one of his proudest achievements to date, as it seeks to give others access to things that gives him the most inspiration – the gift of singing.
Evening tickets are available for guests to come and watch the amazing evening show where each BIG Sing Choir will take it in turns to perform their song learnt especially for this event. We have loads of Broadway classics that you will be singing along to! The BIG finale will see Michelle John joining The BIG Sing Choirs!
