CAPA Voices are a group of enthusiastic and dedicated young singers selected by audition from students at CAPA College, one of the North of England’s leading Performing Arts establishments for 16-19 year olds. CAPA College combines full time vocational training in the arts with academic excellence. As well as appearing in several shows at the college and in theatres around Yorkshire, CAPA Voices have also performed at Olympia, London and in the Naumberg Bandshell in Central Park, New York. They are thrilled to have been selected to perform in the Godspell In Concert tour and are excited to perform on stage alongside professional musicians and vocalists.
CAPA Voices will be coached to their moment in the spotlight by Musical Director Russell Scott who is at the helm of the show’s spectacular new orchestration. An accomplished singer, producer, musical and choral director, Russell is Chorus Director of Next Stage Choir and works regularly with choirs and ensembles. Under his tutelage they will sing some of the most popular songs from the show accompanied by the fantastic live Godspell In Concert band.
Russell Scott says:
“Across the country the standard and volume of choirs that have applied to join us as part of the Godspell In Concert tour has completely exceeded our expectations. We have reworked the orchestration for an ensemble and adding choirs extends the community feel of the show, adds an exciting new dimension to the score and brings with it additional electricity. In this intimate concert format, it will leave the audience feeling exhilarated and uplifted.”
The UK tour of Godspell In Concert will feature a brand new, modern-day rock score packed to the heavens with favourites such as Light of the World, All Good Gifts and Day by Day. This timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love has touched the hearts of countless theatregoers all over the world - and now UK theatre fans can join in the celebration as a spectacular ensemble is set to stir souls and raise spirits, aided by a full live band.
Prior to the gala earlier this year at the Lyric Theatre the show last played the West End in 1972 at the Wyndham’s Theatre, where it turned David Essex into an overnight sensation. More recently Godspell has enjoyed a hugely successful run on Broadway.
