For the second year running, Newham held a festival of choirs this month. This is a series of choir sharing events leading up to a finale of 8 choirs. Solid Harmony enjoyed reviving their own creation, ‘Chicken and Rice’ for one of the sharing events and sang Michael Jackson’s ‘Will You Be There’, conducted by Geneta Crooke for the big finale at Newham Town Hall.
