Hi there,

Tomorrow we have a choir rehearsal 6:45 for a 7pm start at De Molay House.  If anyone would like to meet at Park House before to socialise.  I will be there from about  5:30 give or take 5 mins.  Remember we need to be learning The Parting Glass from the parts that Matt preparted which are in Repertorie.  Listen to the Wailing Jennys to hear how Astrid would like it.  You need to click on the Login  to access the practice parts.  Pleasae send me a text if you can’t login and I can reset your password.

Cheers Lesley

Singing in your cars on the way so we are all warmed up ready to do a run through of our repertoire.  We will be performing at 7:30pm for half an hour.  It is Xmas in July so wear something christmassy bit of tinsel will do.

We are singing Silent Night , When a child is born , Mother Earth, Fields of Gold , Weather with you, Thule Mama Ya, Red Hot, Unchained Melody – not necessarily in that order.  And there may be something like We wish you a merry Christmas thrown in…
