On the 28th of February, five of our young musicians from All In Music (Southend YMCA) performed in front of a packed out Palace Theatre as part of this year’s run for Southend Makes Music.
Three of our musicians had never performed in front of any type of audience before but you could not tell from the high standard and quality from each of them. They did themselves proud immensely.
Weeks of dedication, practice and commitment from our guys really did pay off!
Last night’s set list: included Chloe Payne (Piano/Vocals) - "The House We Never Built", Sarah-Jayne Kirby (Vocals) – "Jar Of Hearts", Nate Doucette (Vocals) – When The Party’s Over, Nate Doucette (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Jackson (Bass) – Chocolate and Swailea Shayler (Piano Instrumental) – "River Flows In You".
Accompaniment throughout from our music tutors Tom Eatherton and Davey Hal.
"Backstage" - (L to R) Alex Milne, Davey Hal, Josh Jackson, Chloe Payne, Nate Doucette, Sarah-Jane Kirby, Tom Eatherton and Swailea Shayler
