West End Stars Come to Brierley Hill to Launch the Black Country Festival

West End star, Sabrina Aloueche, forms part of the trio performing at the event.

Three West Ends stars will descend on Brierley Hill Civic Hall this July for a spectacular evening of music from the musicals to launch the Black Country Festival.

In a showcase entitled ‘Music of the Night’, the theatre stars will be accompanied by the 80 strong 'In Sound Company' community choir, Birmingham Institute of Theatre Arts and the 30 piece Gig Caritas Orchestra.

The music of Andrew Lloyd Webber will feature prominently as Keiran Brown, currently appearing in the London production of 'Phantom of the Opera', sings the evening’s title song – Music of the Night. There will be other Lloyd Webber hits with songs from from Evita, Joseph And His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar on show.

Sabrina Aloueche, who's performed in shows including Les Miserables and We Will Rock You and CiCi Howells who's taken roles in Threepenny Opera and Saturday Night Fever, will perform songs from Les Miserables, West Side Story, Guys and Dolls and Miss Saigon.

Funds raised from the concert will support the Side by Side Theatre Company to represent the Black Country at the Edinburgh Festival fringe this summer.

Local fundraising arts group Gig Caritas are presenting the concert, which is also being broadcast live on Black Country Radio. Musical Director, Keith Horsfall, said:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for local and international talent to combine on a Black Country stage to bring some of the best numbers from the world of the musicals.

"To have true West End stars come along is a real privilege, so we invite everyone to turn up for a hugely enjoyable evening – and raise money for a great charity.”

Tickets are priced at £10 and can be obtained by visiting gigcaritas.com.
