November 2013 Members’ update

A season of remembrance

With the concert season already under way, accompanied by the cold, flu and tummy bug season, we have our work cut out to make sure we can enjoy as well as perform the December concerts on the 8th December and 19th December. It is to be expected that some people may miss a rehearsal because of ill health, but this makes all our other group rehearsals, as well as our home rehearsal in-between all the more important.

It is hoped that members will try to attend all rehearsals over the next few weeks and in particular an extended rehearsal for the Christmas concerts. Due to lack of accommodation availability, this date has been moved from 24th November to 1st December from 4-9 pm, with a meal break at 6-7 pm.

The October update has been modified to take account of this change and all other rehearsals are listed there. Our home rehearsal links as well as the draft concert programmes are listed on the Autumn rehearsal notes page. Please suggest any good links you find that are not listed to Hazel Scott.

For the RSC Concert on the 19th December, you might find it helpful to have a copy of the choir seating plan and to make a note in your folder of your row and seat number.

Ladies who missed a measurement for their choir gown on the 10th November will be offered an opportunity for measurement again soon. Ladies looking for a top to wear under the new gown might find one of the links below of some use:

A helpful reasonably priced suggestion for ladies looking for long black skirts (to be worn in future with the black gown) is to check out the skirts being sold by New Look
