Newsletter Summer 2015

Welcome back to a new term.  We have had a very busy year so far and there is still much to do!

Thanks to everyone for making the recording session run so well.  We are waiting to hear the final result of all that hard work but it should be excellent and with luck we will be able to take CDs  with us to sell in Spain.

There are some important events coming up the first of which is the Alzheimer’s concert on May 16th.  This is a free afternoon concert ( 2- 3pm with a short rehearsal beforehand) followed by a rehearsal for those going to Spain.  Refreshments and information about the work of the Alzhemier’s Society will be available in the adjoining hall. 

The tour to Spain takes place from 23rd – 29th May so there will be no rehearsal at Rowheath on 27th May and the previous two rehearsals (13th and 20th May) will be for the tour choir only.  If you are not coming on tour you can consider this as your Easter break J but it would be good if everyone could continue to look at the Faure, Zadok and I Was Glad and learn their parts using the links given.

We have invited some of Canoldir to join us for the Faure since the tenor and bass parts are both split and we really need the extra voices.  It also means that we can do the full 7 part Zadok and also the I Was Glad with a good double choir.

The Summer concert will be at the Elgar Hall at Birmingham University where there is plenty of free parking and we can have a lovely picnic in the grounds, as we did at the Ruddock last year.

Happy singing!
