Following its phenomenal success last year, Men United in Song is back for 2017, once again raising money for a very worthy – and specifically male – cause, Prostate Cancer UK
Launching in April, the project will sign up a minimum of 40 local men with a range of previous singing experience (including none!) to rehearse over 12 weeks for a gala charity concert at the much-loved Broadway Theatre on Saturday 24th June. Such was the popularity of the project last year that over 100 men participated, raising many thousands of pounds for the charity – a fantastic result! Men United in Song kicks off with introduction sessions at the Broadway Theatre on Wednesday 29th, Thursday 30th and Friday 31st March (7-9pm).
Absolutely no previous experience is required to join, just a willingness to get stuck in and give it a go. Will Prideaux, director of the project says ‘we’re not looking for a Gary Barlow or an Alfie Boe, just guys who want to come along and enjoy singing together. Until you’ve tried it you can’t understand the buzz singing can bring. We’re not looking for 100 percent in musicality, but 100 percent in enthusiasm. Come along to an introduction session and find out more, we’re convinced those who do will enjoy themselves and discover how great singing can be!’
● Introduction sessions will be at the Broadway Theatre, Peterborough, on Wednesday 29th, Thursday 30th and Friday 31st March (7-9pm). Rehearsals will be at the Broadway Theatre on Thursday evenings from 7.45-9.45pm, starting on Thursday 6th April
● The Men United In Song concert will be at Peterborough’s Broadway Theatre at 7.30pm on Saturday 24th June 2017
