ON OCTOBER 7th a showcase for emerging talent will be launched at the Thameside Theatre.
The show is the brainchild of singing teacher, Shana Elliott-Hayers and Jo Hyland. Shana felt that many young singers were not getting enough or indeed any experience of performing on their own on stage.
So, the process is simple: book yourself a slot, turn up, bring your music, get up on the stage and sing. The performance will be filmed by YourThurrock and published on the site that week.
The singer can then look back on their performance enabling them to learn and develop. The central theme of the show is learning your craft. It is not the X Factor.
If the pilot is successful, then the show will run once a month in 2011.
YourThurrock’s Lucy Jordan interviewed Shana and Jo at the Thameside to find out a little bit more.
