An exciting new year ahead for our Echo choirs

23 November 2015

What an exciting new year we have planned for our Echo choirs in Leeds and Newcastle!

Next term Echo Newcastle will perform at Northern Stage (formerly Newcastle Playhouse) in Newcastle Upon Tyne. This is a great new venue with fantastic facilities for the choir and audience members alike. Echo Newcastle’s first concert of 2016 will be on Friday 11 March at 7.30pm.

It’s all new for Echo Leeds in 2016 starting with a new rehearsal venue in Horsforth. There will also be a change in venue for their first concert of the year to The Carriageworks Theatre, Millennium Square in Leeds. The choir have a new leader too – Mark Deeks – who will be taking over as Music Director. Mark has specialist knowledge of a wide range of pop and rock styles which Echo in Leeds will use to the full. Echo Leeds’ first concert of 2016 will be on Sunday 6 March at 6pm.

Both choirs will be performing ‘Disco Inferno’. In this concert Echo will put their stamp on the very best of classic soul and disco. The concert features music from Diana Ross, Al Green, Chic, Earth Wind and Fire and many more so really the only question is, who is bringing the glitter ball?

Echo’s Music Director in Newcastle and Leeds, Mark Deeks said, “I'm really excited about working with both Echo choirs in 2016. I’m especially looking forward to helping Echo Leeds start this new chapter and hope that members both new and old will join me as we create a show full of energy, fun and great, great tunes!”
