Come and Sing Day
What a great day our Come and Sing was. Over 60 people shared a day of beautiful music and enjoyed singing highlights of the choral repertoire selected for their timeless appeal.
Tim was on great form. He kept the day moving with tips to improve our singing and our musicality. He kept us energised and amused and furthered our understanding with snippets of background about the pieces. We have found a gem of an MD!
Breaks gave us a chance to relax and enjoy socialising at a distance. We were plied with an array of delicious cakes and drinks, and the sumptuous ploughman's lunch brought many accolades.
Even our social distancing and constant hand washing didn't dull the day, though we were sorry for those who felt unable to join us. Many said that is was good to sit in a different arrangement and beneficial to 'hear' differently- not least to be more aware of your own sound. Vocal independence was the order of the day!
Our activities must cease for a while, but don't forget our virtual choir on a Tuesday - sorry for the technological blips but we'll keep trying.
The Really Big Carol Sing
Over £500 was collected as a retiring collection after this event.
This has been used to help the work of Cornerstone, Warminster and Christ Church.
