October 2018: ITV and Cream Classical


Channel 4, ITV and Cream’s 25th birthday celebrations

A female trio of Sense of Sound’s finest divas were featured on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks performing an a cappella rendition of Ben E King’s classic soul track, Stand By Me.

10 of our singers filmed scenes for a ground-breaking ITV drama about the tragic events that happened during and after Hillsborough starring Maxine Peake as the tenacious Anne Williams.  To be the choir of choice for something so important to the people of Liverpool was a real honour and our way of being able to show love and respect to all those who have been affected.


When STIHL TIMBERSPORTS called and said they were coming to Liverpool Echo Arena and could J.J.M source a soprano diva to sing the national anthem we had the perfect person in mind. Our very own, Anne Taft. There is no end to this woman’s talent. She is a lecturer, vocal coach, music mentor, composer and exceptional vocalist.
Anne opened the games with a highly-charged operatic performance of the national anthem, everybody loved her stunning voice and many delegates were reduced to tears. Thank you so much STIHL and to you Anne.

To top off October, Cream Classic rose to the top as one of the main highlights for us for 2018. Once again Cream Classical exploded at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral in celebration of Cream’s 25th Birthday.

The heart-stopping light display was indescribably breath-taking, transforming the cathedral into a futuristic planet Cream for 2 hours of non-stop house music heaven; our specially created 32 piece Sense of Sound Singers ‘power choir’ crowned the stage dressed in all white, blending harmonies and rich backing vocals with such true magic. Jennifer is so proud to vocally direct such true talent. YOU’RE ALL AMAZING! Jennifer John also sang lead vocals alongside the amazing Joanne Steel, Anne Taft and Joe Hazlett, packing a sucker punch of glorious harmonic groove gliding over club classic anthems. Legendary K-Klass DJ’s and the phenomenal Bobbi Depasois all on one stage together, indeed they had the crowd bouncing with the mighty Kaleidoscope Orchestra. Concert goers danced the night away and the cathedral was filled with love and nostalgia. Every bounce of the crowd sent shock waves back to the orchestra, the singers the DJ’s and all the crew backstage. It was out of this world. Well done team.

Just an other triumphant event held at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral. We are so lucky to live in a city where such amazing music events of this scale happen and even more lucky to be involved

Cream Classical returns to the Anglican Cathedral in February 2019 we can hardly contain our excitement.
