May 2014 Members’ Update

summerAs the days lengthen, so the time to our next concert shortens and the excitement builds!

Please make sure your friends don’t miss out – book your tickets now!

Please also make sure your friends have a concert to remember (for the right reasons!). There are three remaining rehearsals : 11th, 18th and 25th May. Please try to attend and please use our links for home rehearsal. Please note, we do not have a rehearsal on 4th May. Please note: the rehearsal on the 18th is men only from 7-7.45 pm and both men and ladies from 7.45 pm.

Before the concert on 30th May please come dressed and ready to sing at 6.15 pm prompt, at the concert venue (St Brides Church, Fallside Road, Bothwell G71 8BA), for a rehearsal and photograph.

Note words for the WW1 medley songs and a revised programme will be available to download from the current links page shortly.

We are looking foward to seeing how the new ladies’ gowns look ‘en masse’ on the 30th May. Lady members who wish to take part at this concert will need one of the new gowns. We are very grateful to our seamstress for all her trouble and time to meet choir members for measurements. We regret that no additional gowns can now be made before this concert. All opportunities for measurements for gowns have been enhausted and the gowns are being delivered on the 18th May!

We enjoyed an excellent response to our coffee morning in April. Many thanks go to the members of Bothwell Evangelical Church for allowing us to use their building and for their support to prepare for the event and clear up afterwards. Thanks also to all the choir members who supplied such a glorious feast of baking as well as other stalls and to the members and friends who enjoyed eating it! An excellent final total of £405 was raised.
