Earlier this month, a number of staff from Modern Languages at Southampton participated with colleagues and students in a performance by the University of Southampton Voices, the University’s community choir, led by Harvey Brough.
The performance, which told the incredible story of the Fisk Jubilee Singers, was a great success, attracting a large audience to St Michael’s Church in Southampton. Amongst the performers on the night were soloists Emily Dankworth, Melanie Marshall, Cleveland Watkiss and Austine Abiagam, a talented semi chorus and fantastic quartet of musicians.
A blog post written by choir member Rachel van Besouw gives an account of the experience.
For staff and students who may be interested in joining the University of Southampton Voices, keep an eye on the choir website for information about rehearsals in the new academic year.
