We’re really pleased to announce that the sponsorship pack for our proposed concert at The Royal Albert Hall in May 2022 is now ready for general distribution.  You can view it HERE – please do just download it and email it to anyone you think might be interested.  Sponsorship can be at all sorts of different levels and all packages are negotiable for variations.

The pack will also be available in professionally printed booklet form next week at choir – please ask Rachel or Ruth.

This will be a document that evolves as plans progress and more information becomes available.  Please do make it clear to everyone you talk to that we are in discussion stages at the moment, and whether the concert goes ahead or not depends on a number of factors, not least on sponsorship 🙂  Having said that, we are really excited about the prospect of singing in such an amazing and prestigious venue, working with world-class musicians and soloists, with the expertise of a proven professional marketing company to help fill up the auditorium!

Go forth and spread the word!

In the meantime – don’t forget that if you want to familiarise yourself with the wonderful Cavalleria Rusticana, Petworth Film House is showing live a performance at the Royal Opera House on April 21st at The Leconfield Hall, and a number of choir members are going (ask Ruth if you want to join us)!  Click here for more details.

More Tour spaces available!

We have a good number going on tour to Bilbao now, but there are still spaces due to the larger coaches being used this year.  If you’d like to join the tour please contact Michael or Claire at tourinfo@leconfieldsingers.co.uk

You can read all about what to expect on our Summer Tour webpage.

Would-be Soloists – please reveal yourselves!

We’re still on the lookout for potential solosits, both for the Tour and for our Autumn concert in September.  If you’re interested please email Graham at music@leconfieldsingers.co.uk

2nd Tour Payment is now due…

Also – just a reminder that the second Tour payment is due as of last week – £350 per person, regardless of whether you are taking the no-flight option or not.  Please send payments by Bank Transfer to our usual bank account (you can view this on our Subscriptions page).  Unfortunately we don’t accept card payments for the tour, as the commission would cost too much, but if you’re not an online banker, please bring a cheque with you on Wednesday.

Music practise for next week

And lastly (but it should really have been firstly 🙂 ) for our rehearsal on Wednesday please keep/start practising:

  • And the glory
  • O thou that tellest
  • His Yoke is easy

Remeber there’s load of help on our Music Programme & Practice page – but here is a link to the Sop Alto Tenor and Bass audio files for Messiah to save you some time and embarrassment if you’ve forgotten your login details!

~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0 ~

That’s it for now folks – see you on Wednesday, hopefully with some printed sponsorship packs…
