“Next Stage Choir is a fun, non-classical, ‘tutored’ community Choir where vocal development and skill are as important as the development of the Choir itself”
Next Stage Choir was formed in 2010 by Russell Scott and Sarah-Jane Olsen under Next Stage Drama Ltd, a Company, owned by Sarah-Jane, and dedicated to helping newcomers in singing and acting to develop their skills by way of workshops and courses.
Sarah-Jane and Russell had been working together for over 6 years, with Russell running numerous singing workshops and courses to great success, before they decided to setup a full time Choir in both Marlow and St. Albans.
The Choir has now been transferred solely to Russell Scott, who now runs the Choir with his wife Denise under its new name Next Stage Choir Limited.
Though the Choir is run alike other traditional choirs, it’s focus is on non-classical music in a fun and dynamic environment where vocal development and skill is as important as the development of the Choir itself.
We call it a ‘tutored’ Choir because whilst working on the repertoire in preparation for performances, we also work on developing your voice and your singing skills.
Since its conception, the Choir has continued to develop and broaden its repertoire, building a reputation for its friendliness, its non-pressured environment and its continued determination to bring singing to everyone, something it’s Chorus Director, Russell Scott has been doing for several years.
