The award-winning Manchester Inspirational Voices choir are back after their sell-out Christmas show in 2017. International singer, star of The Voice and choirmaster extraordinaire, Wayne Ellington, has put together another impressive programme of timeless classics and modern festive tunes with a gospel twist.
They are joined by top ten platinum selling singer-songwriter and fellow Mancunian, JP Cooper, whose dulcet tones will have you singing along. The hundred strong choir will be accompanied by musicians from the fabulous Royal Northern College of Music Session Orchestra conducted by Andy Stott, the MIV Band and other special guests. This is not to be missed!
Manchester Inspirational Voices (Formerly Manchester Sing Out Choir)
45-piece multi-cultural and cross-generational choir who are united by a love of music, performance and God. Established for the Manchester International Festival as part of Gorillaz, the Manchester Sing Out Choir are now much in demand.
Playing a blend of folk, blues, soul and gospel; JP Cooper is an intriguing prospect amongst aspiring British singer-songwriters. Listening to him perform, either alone or with his band, bears witness to an honesty, intensity and power evoked via the simplest of orchestration. His soulfully expressive, unique vocal style, the kind that cuts through a room to hush a chattering crowd in seconds, is utterly bewitching. His unexpected vocal flights hardly prepare you for the intimacy and empathy to follow, and coupled with a clutch of sensational songs, you will find it almost impossible to believe that he has only been writing seriously for two years and performing solo for barely one.
