Choirbolical ‘Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World’ virtual choir video is now available!

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your patience. Our wonderful video/sound enginerr Andrew Blenkinsop has completed the video. It has been uploaded to YouTube and now available to view and share to your heart’s content. It was a delight to do such a fun project with you all and I hope that you are happy with the results.

The video is available via this link – https://youtu.be/F46Q8O_NQ5U

Please bring this piece of music along on Sunday (available in the repertoire section if you do not have it already) and we can finally do a LIVE version to hear it altogether and in-the-round.

Thanks once again for all your work. Feedback is always welcome so feel free to contact me at piano_matty@hotmail.com to share what you thought of the experience!

Have a great week and lots of love to you all!

Matt 🙂

19th July Rehearsal – Laurel Bank Park

Hi All,

Hope you are well and keen to get back together to sing! I want to keep our first time back singing en-masse (and in person) quite simple, so we will do some familiar pieces! Please dig out your copies of the following to bring along on Sunday, 19th July (2:30pm bring-your-own-coffee for a 3pm start):

  • Baraka na wewe
  • Connected
  • Ya Basta

Very much looking forward to seeing you all there! Do let me know if you have any questions!

Much love and keep smiling,

Matt ^_^
