Dear All

Excellent singing last night … I think we all worked mighty hard and the end result was absolutely great.    Next week we will be doing: Hold On, Tongo, And So It Goes, Things, Eternal Flame, Time After Time, Funiculi Funicula, Wake Up.



To remind you, 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.
