Surprise for Nicole at The Ovations
On Saturday 14 October 2017, Sing People Sing's Choral Director, Nicole Dawson attended The Ovations at the Pavilion Theatre Ballroom. She was there as part of the Swish of the Curtain team as she is a vocal and acting coach for Swish as well as leading Sing People Sing.
It was a thrilling night and was a real who's who of the theatre world here in Dorset and Hampshire. Unbeknown to Nicole there was a big surprise in store for her during the night: she was to win one of the prestigious Ovation Awards! In a new category for 2017 The Ovations introduced the "Be Inspired" award, a special award for someone who has inspired others with their work and inspired them to perform or get involved in the arts. Sing People Sing are delighted to announce that following overwhelming nominations from a variety of people inspired by Nicole, she was chosen as the winner of the award!
Here is the Manager of the Regent Centre Christchurch (who sponsored the award) announcing Nicole as the winner:
