October 2013 Newsletter

posted 9 Oct 2013, 13:55 by Penny Thompson

Hello everyone and welcome to my first newsletter.  

We have made a good start on the repertoire for the Christmas concert at the Adrian Boult Hall on21st December.  The concert, which will start at 3 pm, will be preceded by a compulsory rehearsal and I need to remind you that in order to do any concert you must attend 70% of the rehearsals.  Ruth will keep a check on attendance and will warn you if you are in danger of falling below the required % so please help her by ensuring that you register with her each week – this is particularly important if you come in late.

There will be no rehearsal on 30th October but we will be holding a quiz.  Teams will be a maximum of 6 people (cost £5 per head) but you don’t need to be organised in a team before the event – just turn up and you can join in with others.  Please sign the list to let us know if you are coming. We will be holding a raffle during the evening so we will happily receive any donations for prizes.  It is important that the quiz starts promptly at 7.30 so please arrive by 7.15 so that you can purchase drinks etc. and teams can be sorted.  We will be providing ‘nibbles’.  

We will be holding another Learn to Sing course starting on 13th November. If you know someone who would like to try singing, but isn’t confident enough to join the main choir, do encourage them to come along.  Flyers are available at choir.

There are several carol singing opportunities in December and signing-up lists will go out closer to these events.

Happy singing!
