Hello Choirbolicalians! It’s time to warm-up those voices and show your family members (and neighbours) just how much singing talent you have! Please practise the following pieces for our next rehearsal on Tuesday, 21 March:
- Flame (Piece #5) – rehearsal tracks made by the composer have just been added to the repertoire tab so please sing along with the tracks to learn your part
- Can’t Help Falling in Love (Piece #2) – please sing along with the rehearsal track
- A Light of Hope, A Song of Peace (Piece #3) – please sing along with the rehearsal track
- Love Prepare Me (Piece # 4) – no rehearsal tracks for this one, just sheet music to sing along with
These 4 pieces, along with Sing and Make You Feel My Love will form the set we perform at our first Pop Up Performance on Sunday, 23 April. This informal performance will be something exciting to look forward to and prepare for!
We will also have a sing through of our brand new piece, United in Purpose (Piece #8), but there are no rehearsal tracks for this one yet. Hopefully we will also have time to sing through the beginning of The Times They Are a Changin. We have lots of music to sing at the moment so spending some time to sing through your parts at home will be quite valuable for our rehearsals! See you soon wonderful Choirbolicalians!
This coming Tuesday 7th March is a rehearsal at 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Looking to seeing you for another wonderful sing or to welcome you to returning or joining us for 2023.
VOCE – the organising group will be meeting at 6pm before the rehearsal to look at upcoming events and organisational matters if you wish to attend.
