Rehearsals

 

We attract 70 singers each week and have a nice balance between a warm-up, songs we know well, new songs and a very short break. Lou leads a pre-rehearsal with altos and Mike works with the men from 7.15-7.45pm. The full rehearsal starts at 7.45pm.

 

Social

 

We have three social events, one in each term, at restaurants and bars. We have an annual residential trip. This year it was Bakewell and next year Retford. We also perform on the singing train - a trip to Cromford is planned in May 2018.

 

Uniform

 

Our choir have smart short sleeved blouses/shirts and optional fleecs and coats.

 

 

So we are enjoying ourselves and getting better and better!
