Happy New Year to you all. I’d like to start with a huge thank you for a stunning Christmas concert which I felt was probably our best to date – really festive in a such a grand setting and wonderful singing that made me proud. We also raised a stash of cash for our chosen charities making a total of £748.46 between the two groups we are supporting – Devizes OpenDoors and Wiltshire Mind. Read more in the updated post below. The Care Homes Choir also led a very jolly Christmas singalong at Ivybank House in Bath which was much appreciated by the residents and the care staff.
We start singing together again in a brand new decade on January 7th/9th. Lots of gorgeous new songs to sing to herald in the new year, including starting to learn songs for when we return to Cardiff for the big Sing For Water event on Sunday May 17th. Get the date in your diaries.
A taster of some of the new songs are on the harmony and words page in the members area. The full harmony parts will be loaded up after the start of term.
