Christmas wouldn't be the same without 'Fairytale' and 'Mary's Boy Child'?

 

And we raised money for Autism East Midlands, £1300 over the term.

 

We had a fabulous month with concerts at St. Luke's, Hope House and a carol sing a long at the Star. Workshops continue to be popular and we had a few different themes this year.

 

The T20 anthem, ECS jukebox workshop worked a treat - the following songs were selected: 'Hey Jude', 'Sweet Caroline', 'The Boxer', Country Roads', 'Will you still love me tomorow',  and 'Don't you want me baby?' And beautifully sung!

 

Come along and have a sing. It's open to all abilities but particularly anyone new to singing. We now attract 70 singers to each event and include visitors from Ruddington, Leicestershire, Rock Choir and Trent Singers. They complement singers from Singing for Pleasure, Beeston Voices, Lady Bay and West Bridgford.

 

We have a regular blogger: Jan Perret. She always writes a fantastic blog which describes the workshops from a participants view.

 

Here are a few :

The Thursday choir is blossoming and performed at Oxjam, Hope House, Eastwood and  the annual ECS Singers concert at Beeston Methodist Church with Phoenix Signers. It's currently full.

 

The recent Christmas concerts at St. Luke's, WBMC, Hope House and the Star were joyous events! The Singing Christmas

 

Everyone can sing ......on a Monday has been a lot of fun with a great variety of musicians and 50+ singers attending. Thie first concert on the sing Christmas Tree was fabulous and the want to do more in 2019.

 

We've done our first dementia group at Greasley, and hope to make Monday afternoon a regular session. It was a very special experience to sit amongst people affected by dementia and their carers and SING together.

 

We held a 'Bring a bloke' night and gained 10 geezers for our choir and always like to see as many men as possible on Mondays and saturdays. There are 22 in the choir.

 

We have run team building events at NTU, Oxley Primary School, Chetwynd Primary Academy and entertained the Spiegel tent in Notttingham.

 

Throw in a residential to Bakewell and a several social events and the world is good.

 

So all is good
