Spring 2016 Newsletter
It’s hard to believe that we’re already well into 2016 but I think we’ve made a great start to our new repertoire for the spring concert at St David’s Church in Shenley.  It will be an evening performance, starting at 7.30 and will be held in aid of church funds.  If you’re struggling with any of the pieces you will find John Fletcher’s site very useful for rehearsal files.
The summer concert will take place at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre on July 16th at 7.30.  We’re hoping that the weather will be kind to us and allow us to have a picnic in the grounds again – this proved very popular two years ago.  More details to follow.
Plans for the summer weekend away in Eastbourne are well under way – we just need to hope for good weather!
We are starting to plan for the next foreign tour which will take place at the end of May 2017. These tours are becoming more popular so, to be sure of your place make sure sign up early when the list comes out!
We have had no volunteers to become voice reps. but please feel free to approach any member of the committee if you have any issues which you think need our attention.
