A choir led by a former grande dame promises to bring “a little West End” to Romford.
The Singcerity Choir, led by Tabitha Webb, will perform a Christmas concert at Romford Baptist Church on December 9, with doors opening at 7:30 p.m.
Tabitha, 40, began her singing career at 16 after winning the BBC Choir Girl of the Year competition and has since performed at the Royal Albert Hall and as the West End protagonist in Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables.
Training in September, Tabitha said she “didn’t expect the overwhelming response” she received from people wishing to join the choir.
Bringing her exhaustive expertise to the current group of 80, Tabitha will conduct and sing the evening.
West End soloist Sophia Ragavelas, who performed with Tabitha at the Royal Albert Hall eight years ago, will also perform in the evening.
Tabitha said the choir will bring “a little West End to Romford”.
She added that the choir members sing “from the bottom of their hearts music that touches and transforms people elsewhere.”
