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.
Dear all, if you didn’t make it to our Choir Day on Saturday, then you missed a treat – friendly hospitality, a wonderfully peaceful place in which to sing, beautiful weather, and some great 6-part singing followed by a meal with friends!
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!
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!
Our last concert raised £450 for Comic Relief. Huge thanks to everyone involved for your generosity and hard work. Loved all the variety – singing, dance, ukuleles, games, jokes, great refreshments – all good fun!
COMIC RELIEF: Next Friday 24th is Red Nose Day and you are invited to a Comic Relief Concert at Central Hall, 7.30 pm. Featuring the Central Hall Community Gospel Choir, Parkewood School of Dance, Hythe Ukulele Group and young singers from across Southampton, there’ll be music, singing, a cracking dance show and a cafe. Bring your ukulele too (if you have one) and join in the ukulele jam!
Entry to the concert is £5 per person (children under 16 free).
Have fun – raise money – give it away! All proceeds to Comic Relief.
