The Unknown Theatre Company is not just a theatre company.
It is a Company policy to engage in as many different activities related to musical theatre as possible, to enhance and develop the Company members' experience.
Following the Company's participation in the Sainsbury's Choir of the Year Competition in 2002, we took part again in the now re-named BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year Competition in May 2004, held in the New Theatre, Cardiff.
We were helped by the wonderful Hannah who came and played for us, and who brought her fabulous singing-teacher mother who gave everyone some excellent advice and tips both at rehearsal and at the warm-up. We were only sorry we didn't have time for more...
On the day, it was a little touch and go though, as we had to have a minimum of 16 performers and for various reasons we were down to 16 on the day - no room for anyone else to drop out last minute!
We hadn't had very long to prepare for the event, and had to learn new songs, but everyone pulled together and performed brilliantly on the day.
Take a look at some of the comments we received from the adjudicators...
Unfortunately, we didn't get any photos of the choir singing on the day, but here are a few from rehearsal.
