Norfolk and Suffolk singing group Discord staged their ﬁrst vocal workshop last weekend in Diss led by West End and Broadway leading lady Kerry Ellis.
Kerry has performed in musicals Wicked, We Will Rock You, Oliver and Les Miserables along with touring in concerts raising money for the Born Free Foundation with rock legend Brian May of Queen.
Attended by more than 80 members of the group founded by Michael Dann, members did vocal warm ups and sang various songs, with the stars help and guidance.
The session ended with a surprise performance of a Queen medley for Kerry followed by an amazing phone call by Kerry to Brian May who then chatted to all those there over the phone and then asked to be sung to as well.
The group sang We Will Rock You, which he said was “amazing”.
Dr May retweeted the recorded performance on his Twitter profile and has offered his help in the future.
The workshop also raised £125 from donations for the group’s current charity Cancer Research UK.
It is hoped to stage more of these events in the future.
