Crescendo - Derby Community Choir

Waaaaay back in the 90's, in his early 20's, Kev Jackson was appearing in amateur theatre in North Derbyshire, playing some fab roles in musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Half a Sixpence, Annie Get Your Gun, Carousel, and a whole load more.  

Kev had already got a background in singing, having done the whole "Once in Royal David's City" solo when he was about 8, and been singing in various choirs ever since. 

So back in 2011, Kev spotted that there were loads of people who said that they would never be able to sing in a choir because they 'weren't good enough' or 'haven't sung since school'. 

So Kev started a Community Choir, that brought together people who just wanted to sing! No experience necessary, no auditions, just a group that sang for fun and friendship. Crescendo was born!!


The choir sings because they enjoy singing - there is no requirement to be there every week - we realise that people have some weeks that they simply have something better to do! But week after week over 40 turn up to sing some fab songs, led by Kev or his partner Hannah and have a fab time in the process. 


So why not come along and give us a try - aged 16 - 106, contact us for a trial night - its free and fun!!
