Congratulations on an excellent performance on Park Walk last Sunday. Memorable for its casualties as well as for its fine singing! Some fine singing last night too – it was good to revisit some of the songs we’ve not sung for about a year. With a repertoire of almost 150 songs a few are bound to fall by the wayside. Choir continues over the summer months of course although we do not have any other “official” booking until Saturday 1 September. Participating in the proposed hymn marathon at St Peter’s got the thumbs up too, so more details of that as soon as they become available.
COMING CHOIR EVENTS:
Saturday 1 September - Cedars / Castle Hill garden party, Bimport, Shaftesbury.
October (unspecified date) – Hymn Marathon. St peter’s Church
