We would like to develop a small semi chorus/consort from within the choir. Suggest 6 to 8 singers , one or two from each part, to offer a separate spot at concerts , (so the choir can have a rest!!) or to sing at local venues/concerts in promoting the choir. All yet to be discussed and finalised but if interested do have a word with Roger.
Our committee meeting on 6th April is now postponed until later in the year. New date to be organised.
Early March. At the end of a recent rehearsal Glyn talked of the possible effects of the coronavirus hitting our rehearsal schedule. And he’s right of course, we are all members of the U3A and as singers we are probably the most vulnerable choir locally. Consequently due to the social restrictions, all the rehearsals leading up to June/July 2020 have been cancelled likewise our concert in June. Watch this space for updates regarding our return.
