From New York City to Barrowby: Raised In Song are coming home!
October 5 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm£10
Lincolnshire choir Raised In Song, who recently returned from performing in New York City, are set to sing again in their home county at the beautiful All Saints Church in Barrowby on Friday 5th October.
The ‘a cappella’ choir, led by singer/songwriter Abi Moore, auditioned to take part in Total Vocal in March this year, and were chosen from the best choirs around the globe to sing in front of 3,000 people at the Lincoln Center, New York, under the direction of Deke Sharon and stars from the Pitch Perfect films and Pentatonix. The concert was streamed live around the world from the David Geffen Hall, which also saw Abi singing a solo.
They were picked due to “the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording.”
Since returning, Raised In Song are looking forward to bringing their passionate and joyful sound to All Saints Church, making a rare appearance in the village of Barrowby, where they are based.
Their Musical Director Abi Moore said “It’s a little unbelievable that we spend every Wednesday night singing our socks off rehearsing in Barrowby, but we’ve never done a concert here! So many people have passed the Reading Room over the years and peeped in at the windows to listen to us- so it’s really about time we put our best feet forward and brought them the proper Raised In Song live experience! We can’t wait to sing in our hometown in this lovely church. The singers all work very hard to perform our songs by memory, so when you watch us in concert, you see the song’s message in the faces of every singer, directly communicated from the heart and soul, not looking down at folders. You hear these beautiful harmonies filling up the room and transporting you to somewhere magical. It is a very uplifting, engaging experience for the audience- they feel part of the celebration.”
Raised In Song will perform ‘A Century of Song’- showcasing their lively, pop classics from the 1910s to the 2010s with their signature joy and energy! You’ll be swept up by harmony- filled songs by the likes of Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, The Andrews Sisters, Elvis, The Beach Boys, Annie Lennox, Elbow and more, and you can bank on lots of foot tapping and an big smile on your face! Catch them in Barrowby while you can!
