MONDAY 5th January 2015, the choir’s first rehearsal of the new year. The second £25 installment of the annual subscription is due today.
We will start learning Faure’s Requiem. Here is a YouTube link – just one of many recordings of this beautiful piece.
We will be performing it with Wem Community Choir in April, provisionally the Sunday after Easter at St Peter and St Pauls, Wem, but firm details will follow.
The choir will be performinig at a wedding on May 16th and our repertoire has yet to be decided. This is the same day as the annual ‘Singing For Fun Day’ when the theme will be gospel music.
Photographs of some choir members performing carols at Sainsbury’s can be seen in following posts that have been transferred from the original blog on Googles’ Blogspot. The choir raised nearly £60 in just two hours for The Beechtree Community Centre.
The choir will be having its annual social/meal on Tuesday 20th January and details will have been emailed to you by Margaret who is taking bookings. She and Pat have found a new venue with a set menu to order from.
