December Update

December 3, 2016

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 see if it is your "thing."  The New Year would be an ideal time to begin a new, fun and sociable activity. You would be made most welcome,  especially if you are a man.  We really would like to recruit more manly voices to give a better balance to our sound.

We practice every Wednesday in the Concert Hall at the Dukeries Academy from 7-30pm until 9=30pm.  This is best accessed from the Leisure Centre entrance and car park.  More details about the Choir are to be found on our web site  thedukeriessingers.com

Thursday   24th. November 2016  Carol Singing at the turning on of the Edwinstowe Christmas Lights  from 5-30pm. onwards.

Sunday     18th. December 2016   A Capella Carol Singing at Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre in the Restaurant from 2-30pm. to 3-30pm.
