The Folkestone-based charity Music and Arts for the Shepway Community (MASC) is proudly holding its second Kent Choir of The Year Competition at the Leas Cliff Hall. The final, which is on the 29th September at 4pm, is supported by the Folkestone and Hythe District Council.
The finalists will be chosen from choirs from all over the county. Kent Soul Choir, who won last year’s competition, will open the show, with MASC’s very own Shepway Voices also showcasing a selection of their songs during the evening.
Musician and producer Alex McNeice will host the event, and the judges are Abi Gilchrist, Director of Kent Soul Choir, singer and choir leader Duncan Moris, Virgin EMI’s Tony Barnes and a special guest ( to be announced later)
All proceeds from the competition will go towards MASC’s many local community projects. These are aimed at the whole community, whilst focusing on children, the elderly, anyone living in social or economic deprivation, and anyone with a physical or mental impairment.
Leas Cliff Hall is Kent's premier entertainment venue. It has played host to some of the best music acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Kings of Leon, Stereophonics, Mcfly, Status Quo, to name a few. It was built in 1927 and has been refurbished several times in its long and colourful history.
