|Socializing with ReChoired|
We're now getting stuck into our new year and there are lots of plans afoot. We've also had a couple of amazing events recently.
First of all, ReChoired, a super smaller choir from Denmark joined us in October for a concert, a workshop and plenty of socialising. Read details here.
Then two weeks ago the choir had a weekend away at the lovely Rydal Hall. Last time we went it was summer and we had particularly good weather. We did wonder what it might be like in the winter. We needn't have worried. It was just as good. Read more details here.
As you can see, we’ve been busy. And we're getting busier.
You can also find details on our Facebook page and we’ll usually put links on Twitter as well.
At most of our events you can get tickets on the door. However, we do recommend getting tickets in advance where we offer this. It helps us and it guarantees that you won’t be turned away at the door. We’ve not had to do that yet but we’ve come close to it.
18 November Christmas Markets Some of us are supporting sister choir Honour, singing at the Christmas Markets. From 5.30.
3 December Christmas Markets Again we'll be supporting Honour at the Christmas Markets. 5.30.
10 December Moodswings Arndale Centre We'll be singing in the Arndale Centre to support the charity Moodswings, starting at about 1.30. After that we'll be singing in Waterstones in the Arndale Centre.
12 December Christmas Markets We're singing at the Christmas Markets from 5.30.
13 December Kidscan We'll be supporting Kidscan at The Wharf, 6 Slate Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester, M15 4ST, 7.30 until 8.30. This is a very informal event but if you're in the area pop along, and if you can, support Kidscan. Kidscan is a cancer research organisation, specialising in treatment for children's cancer. It has a strong Salford connection, in particular with the university. As do many of us.
11 February MACC - Manchester Amateur Choral Competition Yes, we'll be there again. This is an all-day event and audience tickets are £10.00. Save the date and come and support us. Read about our history with the MACC here.
Also, save the date: 7 July 2018 Buxton – our annual trip to the Buxton Fringe. Details in next newsletter.
Also coming shortly:
More work for Kidscan, and more concerts, including with other choirs. Details yet to be finalised. Watch this space!
Talking of sister choir Honour
Congratulations to Honour on the recent successful Kickstarter compaign. You can read all about it here. I looked at it about an hour ago - and not only was it complete then, when I looked a couple of minutes ago it had gone up again! There's still time to get involved.
Happy singing and listening, everyone.
