Saturday 9th March 2019

Didsbury Baptist Church 7.30pm

We are planning a more informal style of concert than usual, with cafe-style tables, nibbles and drinks. The songs will principally be of the early 20th Century style, ie 20s and 30s.

There will be an admission fee for this concert, and the evening will last about 2 hours.

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!
