We began our 2018/19 season with a bang yesterday – it was really great to see everyone again after the summer break. We welcomed more than 80 singers to St Leonard’s Church for our first rehearsal of the year. We were delighted that this included a good number of new singers who came along to try us out.
Calum gave our vocal cords a good workout with a thorough blast of Handel’s Zadok the Priest and Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer. There was a really beefy noise from the chaps and the overall sound was glorious. Our November concert really is going to be amazing
About 20 of us rounded an excellent evening off by going over to Pratts & Payne for a well-earned post-choral tipple.
We should add that this was also our first opportunity to use the new facilities at St Leonards – what a difference! The stealth kitchen is genius and the new toilets are a great improvment.
Roll on next Monday when we will have even more singers!
