Hello all you gorgeous people! We do hope you’re having a marvellous Summer, and that you don’t mind turning your mind to the coming months of colder weather, cosy fireplaces, chestnuts roasting on them and…yes…Christmas!!
Rachel, that most dilligent of librarians, has been very busy sourcing all the various music scores and books for our Christmas programme.
The love of singing conquers all!
Despite thunderstorms, gale-force winds, heavy rain, severe weather warnings and the fear of frizzy hair, a dozen or so of The Leconfield Singers battled their way to Chiddingfold in Surrey yesterday to sing at a wedding.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Wright family for their kindness and generosity, and for inviting us to be part of such a beautiful service filled with love, joy and happiness. [That was shamelessly plagiarised from Amanda’s Facebook post…!]
The great news for the choir is that we received a fantastically generous donation of £500
Well we’re all back after a fantastic tour in Brittany, and photos of our antics can be viewed on our website’s Gallery page. Many thanks to Robert Stedall for some amazing close-ups of our choir and gorgeous images of the churches. Please do send in any of yours you’d like posted. Every year it seems the tours get better and better, with people getting more familiar with the format and more importantly – each other! We hope that everyone enjoyed it and that even more of our choir will be able to join next year!
Here’s a word from our Tour Manager…
It’s been an incredible term with loads of new material learnt, and we hope you’ve all enjoyed it as much as we have!
For everyone going on tour – we will see you at the next 2 rehearsals (both at the United Reformed Church Petworth):
9.30 – 2.30pm Saturday (tomorrow!)
7pm – 9pm Tuesday 16th (or earlier for soloists as organised with Graham)
The Running Order for all 3 concerts on tour can be found on our Summer Tour webpage.
Tour Running Order & encores, Info evening at 7.30pm – and any more potential tour-goers or wedding singers?!
Wow the O Magnum is really coming together – good to hear Graham tell us we really got the feeling for the piece on Wednesday, which is amazing in such a short space of time . You should all feel incredibly proud that as a choir we are starting to pick up new pieces so quickly. It also means that you are all putting in a lot of practise time between rehearsals and it’s paying off – please do keep up the hard work and practise the Missa Brevis (note more help available for members on our Help for Practising Mozart page) and My Heart is Inditing which we haven’t touched on for a while.
