Dear All

As some of you are aware I am organising a festival for the Tisbury Community Choir on July 15th 2017. As part of this festival, we will be joined on stage by the Military Wives’ Choir too.

We are expecting a large crowd for this event as there will be a lot going on in the evening include stalls, beers tents children’s entertainment and, of course the music too.

As it is going to be such a big event in our diary, we want to make the biggest sound possible. As such we are inviting anyone that would like to sing with us and share a song with the Military Wives too, to come join and join us.

This invite is extended to those people that may only be able to join us for this concert, previous members, people thinking about starting but not sure how to get involved, those that would love to sing but don’t think they can, people that would just like to try something different, mums and dads that are looking to do something together away from the kids, gran and granddads that are looking to do something to impress the kids, young people that enjoy singing, old people that love singing and people that have nothing better to do! In short we are inviting everyone

Rehearsals are only £4 per night on a Friday at 7.30 in the Methodist Hall, High Street, Tisbury. Although the choir have a uniform all we would ask on the day is to wear something blue

We provide all the music for you and we can even provide tracks with separate parts recorded on so that you can learn away from choir in your own time too. This is all with no charge as it comes under the weekly subscriptions.

 If you would like to come along to join us then please either contact me directly by email mark@jnxmusicschool.co.uk or via our facebook page Tisbury Community Choir or by phone 01747 873189 

I look forward to seeing you there 

Many thanks
