CDOT VOICES WELCOMES YOU

Community Choir based in Stanford-le-Hope, Essex

ABOUT US

Recruiting now (no audition necessary)

We are CDOT, a fun, award-winning, mixed-voice (men and ladies) choir; a friendly crowd of enthusiastic amateurs who just love singing together.  Okay, so we’ve won awards; but you don’t have to be a brilliant singer to join us.  All we ask is that you are 18 or over and can sing in tune.  We have strong, confident singers to lead each section in rehearsal so you can always hide behind them if you’re shy!

 

We work hard to achieve as high a standard of singing as we can and we certainly earn our mid-rehearsal coffee or post-rehearsal pint; but there is always a lot of laughter and that’s how it should be.  

 

We give up to 12 concerts a year all over Essex, raising money for charities and other good causes. Both our Conductor and Accompanist are professional musicians with many years’ experience of working with both professional and amateur singers.

 

A typical concert will contain a wide range of styles of music – songs from Musicals, TV and Films, Popular Songs old and new, Folk, Jazz, Latin American and a little Classical.  Robbie Williams’ Angel often finds itself sharing a programme with Abba, Andrew Lloyd-Webber, the Beatles, Gershwin, Queen, Verdi and the Girl from Ipanema!

MUSICAL DIRECTOR

 

ANGELO TSOCOS M.MUS

Angelo Tsocos M.Mus. is a full-time Musical Director and Performer. In April 2019 he had the privilege of making his debut at the Royal Albert Hall, playing lead double bass with the 'Lorraine Kelly Studio Orchestra' for the world famous Music Man Project. It was such a success they got booked again by RAH for 2022 the very same evening. He has also performed onstage and in pit bands at various London theatres, and other theatres around the UK, for shows and tribute acts. Also, he has performed for Sky Sports during the London Olympics and on Spanish TV. Angelo has had the pleasure to perform in Piano Bars, Jazz Clubs and for Festivals alongside some of the worlds finest musicians, including Iain Mackenzie (Lead Singer at Ronnie Scott’s), Sammy Main (BBC Big Band), Eddie MacManus (Bass Player to Shirley Bassey and Cliff Richard) and Geraint Roberts (Jame Bond Sound Track Arranger). From 2015-2017 Angelo was the Musical Director for the 'Elton John Experience' which had previously performed at the likes of the Formula One in Bahrain and Wembley Stadium. 


Aside from his professional performing, Angelo has a great love of working with community based orchestras and choirs. In March 2019 he conducted the Havering Concert Orchestra for their Spring Concert and in April 2019 accepted the role of Musical Director for 'CDOT Voices' (a community choir based in Essex). He has also conducted and/or performed in over 40 amateur dramatic theatre shows across the UK and counting.
