Your chance to perform at Hull Jazz Festival this July!

Cleveland Watkiss

Fancy stretching your vocal chords and performing at Hull Jazz Festival this July?

Acclaimed vocalist Cleveland Watkiss MBE is making a very welcome return to Hull in July, performing his stunning a cappella show VocalSuite.

He’ll be joined on the night by members of Hull’s Freedom Chorus. They’ll start the evening by performing a new piece What if…?, written for and with choir members by singer songwriter Em Whitfield Brooks. They’ll then be joining Cleveland on stage for a one-off performance of VocalSuite, unique to Hull.

Interested in taking part?

This performance marks the culmination of a project for chorus members, led by Cleveland Watkiss and assisted by Em Whitfield Brooks.
