We are now rehearsing carols for various forthcoming performances. Four of the carols will be performed without keyboard accompaniment and in additon to soprano, alto and bass harmonies there will be some tenor and descant elements. Donna thinks that the choir has developed and grown to facilitate this which is exciting.
Here’s the shedule so far –
Forthcoming carol Concerts & Performances
SUNDAY 14th December – Sainsbury’s supermarket 2 – 4pm
TUESDAY 16th December – Senior Citizens’ Club in the afternoon
FRIDAY 19th December – Hospital Crib Service in the afternoon
SATURDAY 20th December – Town Centre in the morning and in the afternoon from 2.30pm Prospect House in Malpas
MONDAY 22nd December – Greenfields in the afternoon and Fairfields early evening
Don’t forget that David and Dorne Quipp have invited choir members to join them on 23rd November at their renewal of marriage vows service, see invitation below.
There has been very positive feedback about the choir’s performance last Friday at St Alkmund’s, people in the audience having commented on how proficient the choir has become and the fun of joining in at the end with ‘When the saints…’
Our piano accompanist last Friday was Pam Pickford who seamlessly took the reins from Donna so she could conduct; Pam was spot on so a VERY BIG THANK YOU; she passed on via Donna how well she thought the men sang so WELL DONE BLOKES!

Publicity for the choir, specifically forthcoming performances needs to be done but as there are currently no up to date photographs it has been suggested that I take photographs of the choir in rehearsal this Monday, 24th November. If any choir members had friends or family in the audience at last Friday’s concert who took photographs perhaps they would be kind enough to email me some which I could use when I contact local newspapers.
