Since forming in 2007 and initially starting as just a weekly club to get together and sing, SOSO have achieved far more than founder Su could have expected.
“Initially we were never going to be a performance choir but as we grew not only in numbers but in confidence, I found the members where more than willing to participate in local and community activities. As a leader I felt it was my responsibility to have as many exciting projects as possible and in the process enjoy singing at some of Liverpool’s most exciting venues. Our ethos is to encourage members to have fun and feel they have achieved something as a group when we perform in public, we always strive to be as good as we can whilst maintaining that anyone, of any singing ability, can join us”
So far the list of performances and achievements are impressive

Last Choir Standing
SOSO qualified for the quarter finals of the BBC’S last choir standing. 31 members enjoyed a trip to London where we met and sang for the judging panel including Russell Watson, All judges were complimentary, they loved our enthusiasm and our socks !
Even though they said we weren’t quite ready for the show they encouraged us to keep going and to apply next time. Disappointment didn’t come into it as we enjoyed a very noisy non-stop sing song on the coach from the minute we left London all the way to Liverpool
