Billingham Choral Society always has the WOW factor wherever they perform but excelled recently as they accompanied G4 with an outstanding performance in the Forum Theatre. Pictured here with Ben Thapa, Jonathan Ansell, Mike Christie and Nick Ashby, the smiles of the choir simply beams from every face and who can blame them!
G4 shot to fame in 2007 on ITV’s the X Factor where they pioneered the world with popular opera, with exquisite harmonies, unique arrangements that captivated the hearts of the nation.
The choir of Billingham Choral Society accompanied G4 on five items including the well known Nessun Dorma and One Day More from Les Miserables.
Also appearing were Vox Fortura who recently appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. Both choir members and the audience had a fantastic evening.
Musical Director Margaret Pringle LLCM said, “It was an honour to receive the call to accompany G4, the group were so impressed with us that they asked us to join them as they perform Christmas by Candlelight at Durham Cathedral on Wednesday 14 December at 7.30 pm. We were delighted to be asked and we are really looking forward to working with G4 again, particularly in the Cathedral where the acoustics will be fabulous.”
