Well done! A word from Graham & Jeannie, drinks at 7pm Weds and next Tour signup!!

So much going on as you can see by the title of this post….but firstly a very well done to all of you for a wonderful concert last night!! Here’s a message from Graham… “I just wanted to say well done for a great concert last night. Overall the standard was very high and there were some magical moments. The sound was great and committed and there were some beautiful subtle moments. A big thank you to the trio (Kate, Terry and Michael) for the lovely trio in Rejoice in the Lord. A special thank you to Emma and Claire for your lovely solo items. They added variety to the programme and something extra special to the concert as a whole – thank you. Of course Phil was marvellous, as always.  Thank you to Archie for all his preparation, enabling everything to run so smoothly on the night – a real help to me, it’s much appreciated! Thanks to Jeannie for organising the soup and sandwiches and gifts for soloists (and conductor!) it ran very smoothly too. To all those who helped in lots of ways I don’t know about. All the people I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed themselves and one person was thinking of joining us – if there are any you know who are thinking of joining us do encourage (or drag them) along this Wednesday. One lady said that it was just a magical evening and that every piece was just wonderful – no ‘not so good pieces’. She had sung in a London choir so was a good judge. Another great concert. Well done and...

Concert tomorrow!! Men in Black! See you at (before) 2.30pm!

Concert Notes Well concert day is nearly here and just in case you are still looking for them, here is a link again to our Concert Notes with everything you need to know to turn up ready and eager to put in a fantastic performance!! Here are just a few final reminders… Men in Black Boys – please don’t turn up in a Tux!  This is a less formal concert than Christmas and Summer in Chichester, so men should be in black shirts (no tie). Soup & Sarnies at The Angel before the concert A reminder that between the rehearsal and the concert our Jeannie has organised Soup & Sarnies at The Angel (£10) for around half of you (after a show of hands on Wednesday).  If you haven’t indicated your interest already please let Jeannie know in case there’s a sudden influx of people and not enough to go around.  There will be an honesty box for you to deposit your £10’s. Tickets will be on sale at the door There are still tickets to sell so don’t be shy – keep asking family and friends as we will be selling tickets at the door – no problem! Next week is PARTY WEEK!! We will kick off next Wednesday at 7pm as a Post-concert Celebration & Welcoming Newcomers Party!  It’s a great chance to have a natter with your singing pals and say hello to those poor unfortunates who have been forced to take a break from choir since the May concert but have now returned for the Christmas programme 🙂 See you tomorrow at The Sacred Heart...

Tickets & Christmas music available from 7pm on Weds – and Concert Notes now available!

Last chance for fee-free tickets! The concert is nearly here, so Wednesday will be the LAST CHANCE you have to buy tickets free of booking fee charges @ 7%.  Please do take advantage of this.  Archie has installed our new funky card reader, so really any type of money is acceptable to us (at the moment we might even consider EUROs 🙂 ).  Remember it’s a smaller church so tickets are limited.  We will be opening up the Box Office and Rachel will also be giving out Christmas music, from 7pm next week, so please come early to avoid the queues! Those tickets won’t buy themselves!!!! Please talk to all your family and friends and spread the word about our great concert – we need to up the ante on our ticket sales and need your support.  We always get fantastic feedback on the quality of our concerts so they won’t be disappointed, and remember that your support makes it all possible! Concert Notes now available I’m sure you all know the score now….but for our newcomers and those that like to be absolutely sure what will be expected on “C-Day”, we have prepared some detailed Concert Notes for you.  These can be found outside of this post on our Concert Notes page in the Members Info area, which also contains various other bits of useful information such as a summary of timings for the day and concert dress. Running Order – a correction (sorry!) I’m afraid there was a bit of a mistake on the Autumn Concert Running Order handed out last week and posted previously – just...

A message from our Librarian!

Rachel would just like to let you all know that she will be giving out ordered music for our Christmas programme (for hire or purchase) starting from tomorrow’s rehearsal at 7.30pm onwards. Next week she will be at the URC from 7pm (there are no limits to the dedication that this lady has for your music needs!!). “But what if I haven’t ordered it…” I hear you ask?  Don’t panic – for there is still time (although we will be dusting off the naughty step)!!  Just in case you missed it the first time round, I’m reposting that important form for you to tell us about our music requirements for next term – please read on! PLEASE NOTE: If you’ve already submitted it, there’s no need to submit the form again – it will only result in filling up Rachel’s mailbox and that is NOT A GOOD THING! Here’s the form again (if you’ve not submitted it yet): Name(required) Do you wish to hire or buy A Winter's Night?(required) I would like to hire (free) Please order one for me to buy @ £5.50 I already own one I will not be joining choir next term Comment Don’t forget to click on SUBMIT so we receive your completed form!  If it says it’s been submitted, then believe me, it has been 🙂 If you can’t remember whether you have or you haven’t sent it then don’t worry – you’ll be forgiven for submitting it again – better to be sure! That’s it for now…looking forward to seeing you all again very...
