September 2015 Members’ Update

scarecrowWe are looking forward to singing in the Scarecrow Gala Concert on the 13th September. We will be attending to sing at the start of the concert only and we will then leave the building. Those who wish to stay for the remainder of the concert should still process to the back of the church where they will hopefully be able to secure a seat. (Please note that for concert participants tickets for the rest of the concert are not required).

The rehearsal on the 6th will focus on this and is for those planning to attend the 13th.

Please bring the following pieces and review the rehearsal notes and music links on our current links page:

  • America the spirit lives on
  • Thank you for the music
  • Let there be Peace on Earth

Please also note that there will be no rehearsal on the 27th September.

Members who enjoy singing the Faure Requiem may wish to note that there will be a Come and Sing in aid of CLIC Sargent children’s cancer charity at St Cuthbert’s Parish Church in Edinburgh on 19th September. read more and download booking form here.

Please also note that the members’ Christmas Concert priority booking forms have now been released and emailed to those on our members mailing list. All applications will be on a first come first served basis. Please DO add a note about any special requirements e.g. need for disabled seating.

Forms are to be returned to Bernadette accompanied by the correct amount of payment. Note -you do not need to select postage of tickets or pay for this as tickets will be issued by Bernadette during a rehearsal, nearer the time. Ideally cheques (or if necessary cash) should be used. Please do NOT enter credit card details on the form (even though the form shows this section) as we cannot guarantee that this card data will be kept safe.

Last date for the submission of forms is Sunday 18th October after which bookings will have to be made directly with the venue. NO bookings will be taken by the venue before the choir’s paper bookings have been received during w/c 19th October and actioned. All priority booking is to be via the attached form returned to Bernadette.
