It was lovely to see so many of you at our AGM last week.  Rachel was crowned as our new chairperson and we would like to extend our thanks to Sally and her team of helpers for scrumptious nibbles, which are not only prepared but very kindly donated to the choir by Sally and Vaughan, and to Jenny and her husband Richard for organising the wine from the Haslemere Cellar.

You can of course familiarise yourselves with all the current Committee Members on our website.

At the AGM, some of you were asking what the Music Representatives looked like.  We do have a full page explaining the Group and the voice representatives – please visit Music Group page for more info (you’ll need to log in to the Members area first).

If you’d like to print off or view the papers from the AGM on Wednesday, please visit our AGM Papers page, where you can see this years’ along with other papers from previous years.

All our email addresses can also be found on the Email Addresses webpage – so there’s no excuse now – do get in touch.  We’d love to hear from you!

Announcing choruses for the Come & Sing event!

A number of you have been asking which choruses are likely to be covered at our Come & Sing event on Saturday 9th November, perhaps so that you can have a sneaky practice beforehand and impress all your friends!.  Well this is what Graham is hoping to cover – although it depends on progress of course 🙂

  • And the Glory the Glory of the Lord – page 11
  • *His yoke is easy – page 86
  • Behold the Lamb of God – page 91
  • Surely he hath borne our griefs – page 98
  • And with his stripes – page 102
  • All we like sheep – page 106
  • Hallelujah – page 171
  • Since by man came death – page 186
  • Worthy – page 217

*if there’s time

You can buy tickets at Wednesday’s rehearsal or by emailing tickets@leconfieldsingers.co.uk  If you can buy tickets beforehand it will help us with planning the event, and with the registration rush at the beginning, but you will also be able to buy them at the door as a last resort!

Christmas Concert Box office opens Wednesday 13th November!

Time to start thinking about how many tickets you’ll need for our Christmas Concert, as our Box Office will be open from Wednesday 13th, and it’s allocated seating, so you’ll need to act quickly to get the best seats!  Seats will be banded at £15 and £20, children (under 18) half price.

The general online Box Office will be open to the public the day after on 14th November.

Remember: if you buy your tickets at choir rehearsals you will avoid paying commission charges!
