There are three opportunities to sing coming up so far this year.
Thanks to all those who have already put their names down for the Calne Spring Sing on Saturday April 8th. We have a lovely choir of 43 voices so far to be a part of this very well-organised festival of voices singing in some terrific venues around the town. The event ends with a mass sing with hundreds of singers from other choirs from around the county.
To add your name to the list please email me before Friday February 17th. Please mark your email Calne Spring Sing.
We have been invited to sing at the Urchfont Scarecrow Festival on Sunday 30th April at 12.30pm in St Michael’s church. At the moment we do not have enough singers signed up to be able to accept the request. It may be possible for us to sing on Saturday 29th if finding time on the Sunday is an issue for people – it being the Bank Holiday weekend.
Please email me by Friday February 10th to add your name to the list and state whether you are able to do the Saturday and/or Sunday. Please mark your email Scarecrow. I need to let the organisers know if we are able to commit to this performance as they need to print the programme.
This years Sing for Water event is in Cardiff on Sunday 18th June
This was a terrific event in 2015. we were part of a 750 voice choir and helped raise more than £50,000 for Water Aid. They have chosen some really good songs to learn this year – very much our sort of material. So please email me if you want to be a part of it. I will organise transport to get us there. You are, of course, perfectly at liberty to make your own way there.
I have registered our interest in going, they do not need registration fees or numbers yet. We do not need to be a full choir to go, though it is nice to be able to busk singing our own sings around the site.
