Questa Voce Sings Christmas with Kerry Ellis

Event Date: Fri 13 December 2019

Questa Voce is where it all started, back in 2012. Born from a major production the previous year, this renowned choir and performance group break the mould by not just producing the highest level of production, but in the level of training and continuing professional development, they receive each week.

Questa Voce started life in the car park of a well-known high street technology shop, when our conductor uttered the immortal words, "I've had a bright idea..." Those who know him will not be surprised by that statement leading on to something that requires a huge amount of work all year long, but which, in the final analysis, is completely worth it all. Mostly. Questa Voce followed on from a major previous production, which required some months of recovery for all concerned, but the idea of a performance group who were trained to the highest standards in all styles of singing was (and remains) a novel concept.

Kerry Ellis has fast become recognized as the First Lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway, she has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca with her debut album Anthems.

Kerry originated the role of Meat, in Queen's We Will Rock You and was the first British Elphaba in the West End smash, Wicked, for which Kerry won the 2008 Whatsonstage.com Award for 'Best Takeover in a Role'. She then immediately transferred to Broadway and played Elphaba at the Gershwin Theater for 6 months, where she won the Broadway.com Audience Award for Favourite Female Breakthrough Performance, before returning to London for 6 months in 2009. Her many other leading role credits include Nancy in Oliver! at the London Palladium, Eliza Doolittle My Fair Lady, Ellen in Miss Saigon and Fantine in Les Miserables.
