Spring is sprung 2016


"After our AGM at the end of December, we elected our committee for 2016, and discussed the programme for the coming year.

January, February and March would be meetings with a varied and eclectic repertoire.

April and May would concentrate on rehearsing for the concert on 21st May.

In June and July we would return to singing an assortment of music, adding the ones we like to our repertoire.

We didn't get as far as discussing what to do after the summer break!"
