On Saturday 16th May Donna and John ran their annual Singing For Fun day at Edstaston Village Hall.  This is the third year they have organised this and members from Whitchurch and Wem choirs joined up to sing a range of gospel and spiritual songs.

There were some tricky four part harmonies but the music was great and Holly sang some beautiful solo parts as well as supporting the sopranos with the other pieces.   It was a great day and Donna and John are already thinking about next year, possibly with a jazz theme.  Although the day was well attended, perhaps even more choir members could come along next year, it is a  very enjoyable day and it was sunny enough to eat our sandwiches outside at lunch time!

Donna was back at rehearsal on Monday after recovering from feeling unwell last Monday and Amy was back on the piano and we continued perfecting our repertoire, and did a couple of new songs which we sang in rounds which sounded good.

Several people sponsored Donna for her bike ride and she is happy for us to donate directly to her if people are finding it hard to donate on line with a not very easy link.  She is still cycling everywhere like mad in preparation for her bike ride in June for ME.

Don’t forget, no rehearsal on Bank Holiday Monday so hope to see everyone back at rehearsal on Monday 1st June.
