Hello everyone
We have made a good start on the repertoire for our Summer Concert at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre on 12th July. I think it promises to be a great concert with a varied programme and several guest appearances and, of course, it will be our first concert under James’ guiding hand. Some of us visited the hall last week and all agreed that it is a fantastic venue in which I’m sure the choir will enjoy performing. I can assure you that there is a tiered stage for the choir and chairs will be provided! The plan is to have a short rehearsal mid afternoon followed by a picnic tea in the grounds, if the weather allows. More details to follow!

The tickets will be on sale soon and seating will be assigned so, if you want the best seats for your family and friends, do buy your tickets early!

Please note that there will be a rehearsal during half term (28th May) and there will be an extra rehearsal on Monday 7th July. There will not be a rehearsal on Wednesday 9th July. I will remind you of these dates as we get closer to them.

If you are going on the Liverpool trip you should already have received an itinerary for the weekend and I’m sure Val will keep us updated on what is happening.
