I think we've pretty much covered every major Sing Out Bristol concert in From The Archive, with the exception of this one and it's truly a cracker.  Ten years ago this very day, we made our one and only appearance at The Redgrave Theatre in Clifton for a glittering extravaganza that we called:

Glamour concert | Redgrave Theatre | Saturday February 19th 2011

The proceeds from this concert were donated to Freedom Youth and it was a considerable donation as this was our first ever sellout concert.

For the first time, we featured a non-musical guest performer, on stage with us; 'Stephen', who gave two of our songs some added visual content, displaying his aerial acrobatic moves as a rope climber.  Stephen only came on board 4 days before the concert, so had a steep learning curve, as well as his climb.  Here's one of those songs, Fever. (featuring current member Tanya and ex tenor, Mayowa sharing the solo). Thank you to Scott Farmer for the video clip.
