Dear All

More terrific work last night … as expected.  The “pad” from which the music for our summer events will be taken currently looks something like this:   Time after Time; Call of Wisdom; Long and Winding Road; Hold On; Java Jive; Alleluia; California Dreamin’; Funiculi Funicula; Isn’t she Lovely; Leko Hode Nedo; That Lonesome Road; Morning has Come; Things; Go Placidly; Stille der Nacht; Isa Lei; Wake Up; And So It Goes; Follow the Heron; Eternal Flame.  The list is provisional and is likely to change a bit – Karen, I know, has several ideas up her sleeve! However, we will choose the songs for our various do’s from something not too dissimilar from the above.   Next week we will be doing: Ceremony Boogie, Alleluia; Java Jive; Leko Hode Nedo; Follow the Heron; Isn’t She Lovely; And So It Goes Isa Lei.
