Open Stage company director Rachael Jeffery said: “Open Stage is very proud to have been asked to take part in Collabro’s Derngate show, it’s a wonderful opportunity for our students and fantastic that Collabro is involving young performers in this way.

“We are very excited about the upcoming show and are already working hard to make sure all of our singers are ready - they can’t wait to perform on stage with the boys!”

Speaking about the project, Collabro said: ““We are so excited to be performing with 29 amazing children’s choirs from across the UK as part of our ‘Home’ tour.

"As children, all four of us were members of local stage schools or choirs and the training and grounding it gave us certainly contributed to our journey into becoming Collabro. We’re really pleased they’re aboard our #CollabroChoirs project and we can’t wait to sing with them all.”
