We saw these guys earlier in the year as they entertained at a reception prior to Harry’s Ball at the ICC.
They were absolutely brilliant, energetic and full of fun – if you get the chance do go along this Saturday to see the Aston Performing Arts Academy (APAA) at The Crescent Theatre in Birmingham in a showcase called Soul II Soul Train Live. The showcase will feature talent from over 50 young people that will pay homage to past and living soul icons.
APAA, formerly known as Aston Youth Orchestra, was formed in summer 2000. The aim was to provide a creative arts programme and performance opportunities for the next generation of emerging talent, mainly from the ‘inner city’ areas of Birmingham.
Their unique harmonies, complex arrangements and amazing performance delivery had the group labeled as the UK’s first ‘Urban Glee’ group and has seen the academy become the preferred entertainment supplier at many events across the region.
The show is a journey through the decades of time linking gospel, soul, disco, jazz funk, funky groove and neo soul featuring soul train line dancers, afros and tributes to selected iconic artists. With a live band and vocals from fabulous singers complimented with high-end choreography it promises to be a great family soul night with a Christmas twist.
Soul II Soul Train Live is playing for one night only at The Crescent Theatre on Friday 29th November 2013.
