Coffee morning

Hi everyone, What a very pleasant coffee morning we had at June's lovely home. It was a most generous offer June made and it was a successful social event for the choir.

The brill raffle raised a good sum for choir funds and having won a pack of socks I shall be able to go out in public and divest myself of my shoes with impunity!!! A very happy and healthy New Year to everyone and all those you love. Jan. x.

2016 Christmas Music in Edwinstowe

The second sing at Thoresby Hall Courtyard was a little more ambitious music-wise as we had the keyboard with Jane

December Update

The Dukeries Singers We are well on the run up to Christmas with rehearsals resounding with Carols and Christmas songs. I am writing this on respite from the kitchen where I am up to the armpits in mixed spice, brandy and pounds of mixed fruit making my Christmas cakes. The Concert, with Les Baladins des Bords de L'Indre, the French Choir from near Tours, was a huge success. The music soared, the wine flowed and everyone had a good time. After the last piece of music of the evening, a joint performance by the two Choirs of Adoramus Te, we had a standing ovation!! A rare event but well deserved I feel. If you feel inspired to sing with us, do come along to rehearsal and give it a try and s
