Last Monday night saw the chorus holding its AGM. It’s been a successful year for the chorus and we have raised our profile in the community due to a number of prestigious singouts. Our chorus director announced that we will be holding a four week “Learn to Sing” Course in February with the main aim of recruiting new members. Details are still being finalised but watch this space!!
On Wednesday 27th we had an early singout for a group of retired business men. This meant a very early start for some members who travel a long way to chorus. We have 2 ladies who make a 140 mile round trip! The audience (all male!) were very appreciative and joined in with the singing of Happy Birthday to one of our member who was celebrating her birthday today.
What a great weekend!
ON Friday 25th October we travelled to Llandudno to take part in Convention. We were thrilled with our new dresses and felt very glamorous as we went on stage! We were pleased with our performance and delighted to find out later that we had held on to our 16th place from last year. It was a tough competition with every chorus working hard to ensure that they improved or held on to their places!
We came home on Sunday and had very little time to catch up on sleep etc before our rehearsal on the Monday evening. Our next event will be to take part in the Festival of Remembrance at York Barbican Centre on Sunday Nov 3rd. We are very honoured to have been asked to take part in this festival – I wonder if it’s the first time they’ve heard barbershop at a Remembrance Festival!
We had a great dress rehearsal on Thursday and we have one more rehearsal for family and friends and then we’re off to the seaside! We’re really looking forward to the weekend – hoping to do well and improve our scores from last year, but above all have a fab weekend with all our barbershop friends!
Well we have one full rehearsal, one dress rehearsal and one rehearsal for family and friends and then we’re off to Llandudno and LABBS Convention! We’re getting very excited and really hope we can improve on our fantastic scores last year. If anyone would like to see our convention package (and a few more songs too no doubt) then come along to Acomb Baptist Church on Monday October 21st at 7.30. We’d love to see you there!
Great all day rehearsal rehearsal today! Not long now till convention at Llandudno and we were thrilled to try our new dresses which look fab! We worked hard all day but also celebrated our MD’s birthday with cake! Happy Birthday Terry!
We are now in the run up to our convention in Llandudno at the end of October. We have six more Monday rehearsals and a full day as well as a Dress rehearsal! We are very excited about our new dresses – try on day is Sept 28th!
