VOCALIZE CELEBRATES 10 YEARS🥳🎂🎭🎤🎼
Hi folks and welcome to our Vocalize Birthday Party with a difference. As most of you are aware, we celebrate our 10th Anniversary this year and we had planned to celebrate in style with a Show at the Redditch Palace Theatre in July. Unfortunately, the current Coronavirus Lockdown has halted all rehearsals and performances so we will be staging our show when it is safe to do so. Anyway, we could not reach such an important milestone without looking back on the past 10 years and celebrating everything we have achieved.
In 2010 I had been teaching in the classroom and teaching private singing students for over 15 years and as a singer myself I always enjoyed any opportunity to sing with other musicians. I was fortunate enough to have amazing opportunities to sing in incredible venues both home and abroad and I wanted to offer similar experiences to my singing students. I decided to open a Saturday School for singers and after a few weeks I finally decided on a name for the group and so ‘Vocalize’ opened its doors at Webheath Village Hall in May 2010. You will actually hear from a few original members in this video! Our singers really enjoyed singing Contemporary and Musical Theatre songs and as the group started to grow we talked about expanding our Sessions to offer training in Drama and Dance too. Around the same time, Chloe Heath came along to see me for some vocal preparation for an audition and we hit it off straight away. Chloe had training in Drama and soon after, she joined my team and has been on this Vocalize journey with me ever since. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chloe for her endless support and friendship.
Vocalize has welcomed many tutors to lead workshops over the years including many West End professionals. I would like to thank those tutors who have made such a positive impact on our members. Our rehearsals and performances could not happen without our wonderful backstage crew, technicians, chaperones, parents, carers and ‘friends of Vocalize’, so a big thank you to anyone who has been there to support our group over the past 10 years, especially Neil Wright and Adam Heath (The Husbands!).
As the group has grown and developed, we have been able to offer so many more exciting opportunities, you will see some of our special memories in this video. Thank you to our members past and present who have contributed to this Birthday Video, I hope you enjoy it and I hope to see you all very soon. Lastly, a huge 'Thank you' to Callum Wright & George Evans for their talent and skills assisting me to put this video together!
Lots of Love Tracy x
