Colyer-Fergusson Hall was buzzing throughout the day on Friday, when members of the London Community Gospel Choir came to the campus to perform.
During the afternoon, many lucky students took part in a workshop with some of the Choir, and were able to perform alongside them during their roof-raising concert later in the evening, including members of the University Chamber Choir, Gospel Choir and Musical Theatre Society
Shalom Ozua (pictured right with Bazil Meade), a second-year student in the School of Law and President of the University of Kent Gospel Choir, was one of those who took part; here’s her reflection on the day…
During the day from the workshop to the concert with LCGC, everything was amazing! Singing with the choir’s director, Bazil Meade, was a very good experience which allowed us, as a choir, to learn a lot about different dynamics of singing and also how to make singing exciting. During the workshop we learnt a number of songs which were challenging as they tested our musical abilities, however it was a great lesson! As a choir we have learnt a lot which we will be able to take away and make a difference during our rehearsal times. We are very grateful for the opportunity, and hope to work with Bazil later in the future!
“It was a brilliant night which helped to showcase the talent we have on campus,” observed Aaron Thompson, Vice-President (Activities) with Kent Union, “and it really gave the students an amazing opportunity and experience.”
