And here we are last year in the Undercroft

This time we were in the Bargate for the first time. There was a very appreciative audience, and we were preceded by 3p Suite, a vocal threesome and followed by the excellent Fiddler on the Hoof ceilidh band. It’s a real pleasure to sing in these unusual locations, some of which have been used in the city for centuries, the acoustics and intimate setting all make for a great gig .

Did you see us in the Bargate? Please leave a comment, or if you’d like to have a go yourself then you could come along to one of our Monday evening practices at the Central Hall, St. Mary St. Southampton, 8-10pm. There’s no subscriptions or auditions, but there is tea, biscuits, and sometimes cake.

St. Peter’s Church Fête Curdridge Saturday 23rd September

We were asked to perform a short concert to finish the St. Peter’s Church Fête  in Curdridge.  It was a lovely sunny day and the event seemed to be going very nicely when we turned up.

Fortunately the audience clearly enjoyed themselves, singing along at times and it was great fun to do. They had this amusing giant photo frame for us to appear in afterwards …

Welcome back! Monday September 11th 8-10 pm Central Hall

Well done for your singing and commitment last term. I hope you have had a good summer! Just to confirm that on Monday 11th September we’re back for our first rehearsal (8-10 pm at Central Hall) and it’s an “open” session – do invite friends along and please wear your name badge too if you have one. Looking forward to it!

Southampton and Eastleigh Choral Festival

Well done for how you sang at the Choral Festival – there was tons of energy there and you really looked and sounded the part! I couldn’t see the audience but they seemed to be enjoying themselves. Andrea and Cliff said we’ve got the passion – and they really know their stuff so they should know. Big thanks as well to Mark (bass) and Ken (drums). A sweet sound – well done!

Pancake Party – no singing required!

I would like to invite the choir to my Pancake Party. It’s Tuesday 28/02 5-7 pm at All Saints’, SO16 7DL.

The idea is that everyone chips in with something edible (can be pancakes themselves, or batter, or a filling – savoury/sweet – or a drink) and we share a meal together.

EveryonePancake Party Poster 2017 welcome. (Hint: don’t eat first as there will LOADS of food!)
