Autumn Term 2016

With the leaves beginning to fall, the choir is busy preparing music both for Christmas and for our concert next spring. So far we are enjoying learning several pieces by Mendelsohn and four recently published works by Karl Jenkins. Each meeting, we also manage to fit in several favourites from our enormous repertoire.

Spring is sprung

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!

Christmas 2014

The choir will be singing carols as part of the Manchester Central Library "Christmas Extravaganza" at 12 noon on Saturday 13th December. We will be on the minstrels' gallery overlooking the main entrance !

The programme will be a couple of well known carols, some modern carols which you might not know so well, and a round-up of bouncy Christmas songs.

The following Wednesday evening meeting, December 17th at 7.15 pm, will consist of an hour's singing, our Annual General Meeting and then a sampling of some seasonal food and drink !

The concert approaches

The date for our forthcoming concert has now been revised to be Friday 28th March 2014.

We will be performing a programme of English music at the Didsbury Baptist Church, School Lane, Didsbury at 7.30pm

Rehearsals for the concert are now in full swing, and we will be visiting the church for a practice session on Wednesday 26th February instead of meeting at the Cavendish School venue as usual.

We are also changing our meeting times - we will now meet from 7.15 pm to 9.15 pm. This change in time will be effective from 26th February.

The front door at the school will be open as usual until 7.30 pm, but it is then locked and you must have arranged to telephone someone inside to ask to be let in.
