Sunday July 24 Hastings offered another special music event on a balmy evening at the East Hastings Sea Angling Club, Rock-A-Nore Road in the Old Town. Vocal Explosion which is an open community choir, singing world influenced by Celtic music and music from Africa, Eastern Europe, and beyond, performed with passion and power, concentrating on some lovely harmonies. There was a small but fantastic orchestra with violin, trumpet , drum and guitar which at the end got everybody up to dance and have a fun time.
The choir meets every Thursday during term time at St Clements Church, High Street, Hastings Old Town, TN34 3HT and they are looking for new singers. Their leaflet encourages people to join, saying: “We welcome adults who are new and experienced, and you don’t have to read music, just hold a tune.”
