This well known choir will be giving a concert at the Central Hall on Saturday Dec 1st.
As it is our home venue we have been invited to sing a short set before them.
We’ll be doing a short selection of Christmas music, it is Advent after all.
There is a football match on at St.Mary’s Stadium starting at 5:30, so parking will be non-existent, and the roads will be very congested from about 7:15 onwards, or earlier if Saints are doing badly.
On Saturday 10th November we sang in support of Abby’s Heroes.
Abby’s Heroes is a charity which supports children and the families of youngsters who are being treated at the Piam Brown and Teenage & Young Adult wards at Southampton General Hospital.

On several occasions the choir has supported the Piam Brown ward at their bi-annual memorial service, but this was the first time in support of Abby’s Heroes.
We sang a medium length set in the foyer between Marks & Spencer & Sainsbury’s to aid their publicity and fundraising.
Well, not quite here, but bookings have been taken and preparations have to be made.
At choir practice we have been dusting off the seasonal music to make this year’s events even better than usual
Saturday 8th December 5pm
Christmas tree festival in St. James’ Church, West End.
We have sung at this event in the past, the church building is full of fir trees each decorated by a group within the community, some
traditional, some quite wacky. Some entertainments are available through the weekend of the festival and we are one of those.
Saturday 15th December
The Big Christmas Sing at St Alban’s Church, Swaythling
Action from a previous year’s BCS
We also hope to do carol singing in the pub, perhaps on the street somewhere, and investigations are underway regarding a couple of other Christmas events
It’s that time of year again…
