    The Sons of Pitches (Alington Hall, 7.30pm)

    We are very excited to announce a performance by multi-award-winning British vocal group The Sons of Pitches on 14th September.

    The Sons of Pitches shot to fame in November 2015 when they were crowned winners of the BBC2 singing contest The Naked Choir, hosted by Gareth Malone. Their combination of soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and stunning beatboxing - mixed with a large dose of comedy – captivated the viewing public’s imagination.  They have won multiple awards and their videos have had over two and a half million views on their YouTube channel. 

    “The Sons of Pitches have certainly given a cappella a kick up the backside.” (ThreeWeeks)

    Since winning The Naked Choir, the group have toured extensively across the UK and Europe, delighting audiences with their unique combination of vocal performance and showmanship. 2016 saw The Sons perform to over 20,000 people including two sell-out tours over three months.

    Expect an exciting programme with something for everyone, as The Sons of Pitches bring their energetic and exciting performance to Shrewsbury School's Alington Hall.
