6 days to go

6!   6!   6!   6!   6!   6!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fifty years after Sir Garfield Sobers’ record making 6 sixes in an over, choir will restart, though the two incidents are not really related.

8pm on the 10th September at Central Hall, St. Mary St. Southampton.

We can’t guarantee that it will be as exciting as fifty years ago in Swansea, but it will be fun.

We’re all going on a Summer Holiday!

Really? What? with Cliff and the bus and all?

However…

Sadly, no cliffs

 

 

No buses either

 

 

And also 

We will end the summer term with a BBQ and then start again on September 10th at Central Hall, but we can still be contacted as usual, so if you want to emulate Harry & Meghan, and have us sing at your wedding then check out the About Us page of this website for our contact details.

 

 

 

Southampton Art Gallery once again! Saturday 14th July 2pm

 

This is a lovely space, often used for concerts and weddings, and regularly used for Music in the City.   It’s housed within the North wing of the Civic Centre buildings in the centre of the city.

We will be singing here on Saturday July 14th in the early afternoon 2 – 3pm.

Bastille Day

Although we have done some in the past, don’t expect any songs in French on this occasion. This will be our last concert of the term, and we will suspend rehearsals until September 10th.

 

 

 

 

In Memoriam: Barbara Brown

Barbara, fourth from the left with all the altos and a couple of interloper sopranos in 2011

The choir has sung at a few significant events in the lives of our members, we have done a wedding, a child dedication, funerals of family members and even a renewal of wedding vows, but for the first time we will be singing at the funeral of one of our own.

Barbara, seen here 4th from the left in 2011 was a member of the choir for about 10 years, and requested prior to her recent death that we sing the South African song Shoholoza because it gave her great pleasure. This song was famously sung at the funeral of Nelson Mandela in 2013.  Mandela’s supporters singing outside his house.

So, we will miss Barbara, and this will be our small tribute to her.
