Choir Notices 20/09/17

The bonus ball has been won by Logan, although he wasn’t at rehearsal to pick up his winnings.

Penny thanked everyone who has volunteered to help at the Rutter Day on the 30th September.  However there are some gaps –  volunteers still needed to help with the parking at Penmaes School, and another three volunteers needed to help with refreshments.  Please contact Penny if you feel able to assist with either of these.

Robert has confirmed that we will be singing at the Mayor’s Civic Service on the 22nd October at St. Mary’s Church, and asked for a show of hands. The service starts at  2 p.m.  We will be singing ‘God Be in My Head’ and accompanying the hymns.  We need to be seated by 1.45 but will meet a little earlier for a quick rehearsal.

Veronika announced that sadly Martin Haworth has resigned from his post as Patron Secretary and from the choir.  He has been with the choir for 34 years and will be greatly missed.

Robert confirmed that there will be an extra Brahms rehearsal on Saturday 21st October from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church in the Watton.  Please come along, even if you can only spare an hour.

Robert would like us to look at before next Wednesday's rehearsal.  We will be rehearsing all of number 5, and number 2, from Allegro non troppo (9 after H) to end of movement.

Choir Notices 13 Sept 2017

Welcome to three new members tonight who we hope will stay with us,  They are a soprano Marie-Jeanne Winstone, and two altos Simone ((Surname) and Sian Price.

We have been asked to sing at the Mayor’s Civic Service in St. Mary’s Church on 22 October at 14.00.  Several members put their hands up to sing, it would be good if we could get one or two more to make a good sound to promote the choir, particularly tenors.

On 8th October at 2.30 there is a Messiah from Scratch in Holy Trinity Church, Brompton, London.  This is to raise funds for the people who suffered in the Grenville Towers disaster.

Please follow Robert’s rehearsal schedule sent out last week so you can practice for next week. It will be all of No.7 and No.2 from the Allegro to letter H.

The Bonus ball has rolled over.

Last and by no means least.  Veronika has invited us to help ourselves to her copious apple orchard, cookers and eaters, this coming Saturdaybetween 2.00 and 5.00 at 14 Cradoc Road, Brecon.  She wants them to go to good homes!

You will be hearing from Sheila Norman next week who will take the notices.  Thank you Sheila.
