SunFest 2014 – Vinegar Tom

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014










Hi guys. So this is my first video from SunFest 2014!! Here are the highlights from a second year production of Vinegar Tom. I will be filming more from different shows across the festival to give you an idea of what SunFest is like! On Thursday I am going to watch the third year music performance and will be uploading footage from that. If you have some free time this month, check out some of the shows on at both Washington Arts Centre and The Customs House. There is sure to be something for everyone!!

University of Sunderland – Dodici Voce

Monday, May 12th, 2014










This is a short video about the University’s 12 piece female choir. Third year Performing Arts Student Ellie Turton talks about Dodici Voce and how to get involved. Also, there is information on how to get involved in other similar activities. Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!!

Ave Maria Duet

Monday, May 12th, 2014










Hi Everyone. Firstly, I apologise for the huge to delay to videos being posted. The amount of deadlines I have had this month has been incredible, from dissertations to rehearsals, you name it!! As you may or may not know, at Sunderland University, a festival called SunFest is hosted at the Customs House in South Shields, Washington Arts Centre and various other professional venues. I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the performances going on this year right here on my blog. The videos at the moment are currently being filmed and edited so I shall release them as they come. However, just to wet your appetites, I am uploading a short video of myself and my good friend Ollie Cook who recorded a version of Franz Biebl – Ave Maria. It’s something a little different to what I normally post but hopefully you will all enjoy it. This is one of the pieces that we have been learning in choir and its absolutely beautiful as a four part harmony!!
