Having spent a big lump of time sweeping, cutting down, tidying etc. I have come to the conclusion that Autumn has arrived big time as the garden is liberally coated in leaves, dead plants and crab apples for England!! I shall be needing a new brushhead soon.
The Choir is well into preparations for our Autumn and Christmas engagements.
If you have previously enjoyed singing with a Choir and would like to explore the experience again, we have vacancies throughout the Choir, particularly among the male voices. We do appreciate our men. Their harmonies in the lower voices add such a depth of quality to our music and give the altos and sopranos a firm base on which to sit. ( Figuratively not actually of course.)
This would be a good time to give us a try as we begin our Autumn/ Winter and Christmas rehearsals. We are preparing new pieces and refreshing some favourites. We practice every Wednesday evening frome 7-30pm. until 9-00pm. upstairs in the Theatre refreshment area at the Dukeries Academy, Ollerton. This is best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and Car park.
If you are considering booking us for your Fund Raising, Charity or Christmas Event, be aware that Christmas has a unique characteristic; It appears from nowhere!! We already have several bookings for Carol Sings and Concerts but our Secretary Pauline on 07951609217 would be delighted to hear from you as we do have some available dates.
At present we have bookings for;
Thursday 28 November A Carol Sing at Edwinstowe Lights' Switch on.
Saturday 7 December Our Annual Christmas Concert at the Jubilee Hall, Ollerton
Saturday 14 December Carols and Christmas music at the Alders Restaurant Ollerton
Friday 20 December Carols and Christmas music at the Masonic Hall, Mansfield.
You can find information about the Choir at thedukeriessingers.com and also on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
Dare I ask for some lovely Autumn sunshine after my complaints of the extreme heat in the Summer?
