The OSO Arts Centre, a fringe theatre set in the beautiful location of Barnes Green, runs a series of events to celebrate talented local performers called Unsung Heroes.
On Saturday 3 March, the latest Unsung Heroes concert will feature the Missing People Choir & Eclipse Choir, with support acts by Senior St Sextet and Truman.
The Missing People Choir – made up of people with missing loved ones, alongside staff and supporters of East Sheen-based charity Missing People – caused an internet sensation last year when they auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, with their audition being viewed by over 5 million people on Facebook alone.
The choir was co-founded and is led by Kingston-based music producer and choir director James Hawkins, and is partnered by his Eclipse Choir, who will also be performing at the event.
This hard-working yet joyful choir is made up of talented, like-minded individuals who have come together on a musical journey to learn, perform and improve. Their sound has been carefully crafted under the dynamic leadership of James, who has worked with some of the UK’s best loved artists including Rick Astley, Paul Carrack, Michelle McManus, Chesney Hawkes, Rob Davis, BA Robertson and Carol Decker. Eclipse choir delivers their eclectic repertoire – from Faure to James Bay – with power and precision.
The choirs will perform together at OSO Arts Centre to raise funds for Missing People.
