As February marches on and Winter, hopefully, begins to recede, two phrases come to mind; February-fill-dyke, and as it is chucking it down with rain at the moment, I think that prophecy is self explanatory. The other, much more hopeful, regards the Fair Maids of February. These are snowdrops. So we'll hope for less of the former and more of the latter!
Choir rehearsals have started up again after our Winter break and we are enjoying learning new music ready for our future performances. We have two "in pencil" for March/April;
A joint concert with Newstead Abbey Singers, to be confirmed. This a new venture happily anticipated .
A joint concert with The Dukeries Concert Band, also to be confirmed. So looking forward to this......can't wait.
Please visit our website thedukeriessingers.com It is regularly updated and gives all details about the choir and concerts, confirmed or proposed.
Now then! My usual appeal for gentlemen singers. Where are you all? Don't sing in the bath, hum in the shower or warble at Karaoke, come and sing with us. There is no necessity to read music and no audition is required. If you just enjoy music and singing, come and give us a try-out. In fact all are welcome regardless of age or gender. We meet every Wednesday above the Concert Hall from 7-30 until 9-30 at The DukeriesAcademy in Ollerton. This is accessed by the Leisure Centre entrance and car park.
Our Concert Secretary Phil on 01623 822070 would be pleased to hear from you if you are planning a do that would be enhanced by our harmonious presence.
