Notices – 21st June, 2022

  • A big welcome to our new Assistant Musical Director, Hilary Pell.  Hilary will be joining our rehearsals approximately 10 times a year.  The format for now will be that Hilary will start off with a warm-up and vocal coaching; David will then take the rehearsal to the interval.  After the interval Hilary will take over for approximately half an hour.
  • If you are intending to join the trip to Broadstairs on Sunday 2nd October and have not yet put your name on the list for the coach, Marion has lists at the back of the hall.  Please also indicate if you will be bringing a guest.  The coach will be free to members but guests will be charged a nominal fee.
  • We are planning to hold a Workshop on Saturday 17th September from 10am to 4pm (approx), at Hadleigh Methodist Church. Please let your section head know if you are able to attend.
  • We are also planning a recruitment drive in September – Not on a big scale like Sing Together, but possibly having an open rehearsal one Tuesday where you can bring a friend or allow guests to attend our September workshop.  An initial planning meeting will be held on Monday 27th June, 7.30pm, here at Hadleigh Methodist.  Choir members are invited to come along to this meeting with ideas or offers to assist.
  • Well done to all the singers at last Saturday’s concert. Marion has received two emails from Jane at the church.  One thanking the Choir, David, Janet, Jo, Front of House and everyone else who helped to make the concert a success.  The second giving details of amounts raised for the church – The bucket collection amounted to £113.31p and after ticket sales, costs etc, the Church should clear £800.  Well done everyone.
