A Different Direction Choir is based in Raunds in rural Northamptonshire. We have been talent scouted by DCINY (Distinguished Concerts International New York) and invited to perform on the world famous stage at Carnegie Hall. We will perform as a part of a choir of 250 people from around the world; it's an opportunity we couldn't turn down.
We will sing in the 'Total Vocal' concert on Sunday 24 March 2019, the fifth annual event presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY).
As part of this we will spend five days and four nights in the Big Apple and participate in 9-10 hours of rehearsals ahead of the final performance on the Sunday. The concert is lead and directed by Deke Sharon, 'the father of contemporary A Capella'. Deke produces 'The sing-off' worldwide and served as arranger and on-site musical director and vocal producer for Universal's 'Pitch Perfect' films.
The experience of performing on a world famous stage under the leadership of such an influential and forward looking director is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It will enrich the lives of the participants and allow us to have further impact on the community we sing in when we return.
Ten members of the choir will be going and it will cost us around £1500 each to go (this includes performer fees, flights and accommodation) and we need your support to help us get there. We will be representing not only Raunds, but Northamptonshire and perhaps even England at this fantastic concert and bring back our experience and ideas to share with the rest of the choir in the coming months.
