AN ONLINE concert series is continuing to bring audiences together during the lockdown.

Celebrate Voice festival, which is an annual event held in Salisbury, says it has seen unprecedented demand for its Sunday night 7pm online show series.

The series was launched to keep the community connected and motivated at a time of isolation.

Its five week run was due to come to an end on April 19 but has been extended due to popular demand. The final two shows take place on May 3. French jazz artist Claude Tedesco joins the team for this weekend’s All Request Sunday.

The founder of Celebrate Voice, Lynsey Docherty, said: “At a time when lockdown means our world has become very small and insular, the concerts open up a doorway to the rest of the world as we connect with a global audience and performers. It has become a party - people feel like they are stepping out for the evening, as they dress up and have the opportunity to send messages and interact with the performers and other audience members. The key to success has been the fun, immersive experience for all who are there. It is very moving.”

Celebrate Voice launched the series in response to the lockdown, to create a programme which engages people in song and chat, featuring world class performers, beaming direct into their homes.

The event is free but donations to support Celebrate Voice are welcome. To register and reserve your virtual seat or for more information go to
