Not long to go now and as promised Graham has worked out the sitting and standing for the concert.  Click here to view/download the  instructions, but he advises that you should mark all of these in your actual scores before the concert day as there won’t be much time to discuss it during the rehearsal.

The Cloisters Café, and Pre-Ordering of Sandwiches

The Cloisters café will remain open ​ from 5pm​ until 9pm after the concert interval.  The café will serve hot drinks, wines, soft drinks, bottled beers, crisps and biscuits.

You can go to the café between 5pm and 7.15pm and pre-order interval drinks, which will be set out in named trays in the café for you to collect during the interval.

Sandwiches between the Rehearsal and Concert can be pre-ordered here and at Wednesday’s rehearsal – ask Jeannie.  These will be provided in take away boxes with the person’s name written on them to minimise any confusion!

If you would like to order sandwiches please complete the form below and click the SUBMIT button.  You can order more than one sandwich, or if you’d like 2 or more of the same one, just indicate that on the special instructions.

There will be a Sandwich Collection Point in the Alexandra Room just next to the café and accessed via the café., where there will also be some seating for the choir. There is also seating in the Alexandra Room garden if the weather is nice.

Now – back to the MUSIC!

So safe in the knowledge that Jeannie has ensured we will all be singing on full tummies, just a reminder that Graham has put a lot of effort in the dynamics etc. of the first 2 choruses, for which hopefully you will have taken copious notes!  Can you just remind yourself of these notes before Wednesday’s rehearsal so that we start from a really good footing…?

Diary Dates Correction- Concert Day Rehearsal starts at 1.30pm

The Diary Dates erroneously had the rehearsal on Saturday starting at 12.30.  Please note that this has now been updated to reflect the Concert notes, with the rehearsal starting at 1.30pm.  However as Archie noted last week, please aim to arrive in plenty of time (say 1.15pm) as parking will be tricky on the day.

…and finally

As Jeannie mentioned there will be an After-Concert social on the Wednesday after the concert (16th May).  We plan to kick off at around 7pm so do put it in your diaries and join us for a drink and a chat about (hopefully) how wonderfully we all did 🙂
