On 22 March 2014 from 8.00am to 9.00 am Holt High Street will be closed to stage the first ever Holt’s Huge Howl. Anyone who lives, works, studies, or plays in the Holt area is invited to join the biggest choir Holt has ever seen led by Tom Appleton.
Tom Appleton has lots of experience of running choirs; he is the Guest Conductor of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, Musical Director of the King’s Lynn Festival Chorus and the new Music Outreach Director at Gresham’s School in Holt. Tom said, “Singing is something everyone can do whatever your age or ability. This is a unique opportunity to bring the local community together for the first time to sing the town’s praises, meet new people and most importantly have fun. So let’s all ‘Howl for Holt’!”
In 1964, ‘Beatlemania’ was at its height. The Beatles wrote some of their most iconic and well known, pop songs of the 20th Century and to celebrate 50 years of John, Paul, Ringo, and George, Tom thought it would be a great idea to get the local community together to sing some of their best known numbers. The songs which the choir will sing will include Hey Jude, Imagine and With A Little Help From My Friends.
Tom is looking forward to working with as many local people as possible, whatever age or ability and developing a huge choir for Holt. Open rehearsals will take place leading up to the event.
Collections will be taken on the day with all donations being given to one of Holt’s local charities, The Holt Youth Project.
