News January 2019

Happy New year to all of our members, fans and followers.
2018 was quite a year:
Take a look at our blog and Facebook page to get a flavour of it all.  
We had a very full house at our first rehearsal of the year yesterday and wasn’t it good to get back together and sing after a two week break.    
Before the rehearsal our committee met and 2019 is already filling up. Here are some firm dates:
3 March the MACC  The Manchester Amateur Choral Competition. Read more about it here.   The general  public can purchase tickets and if you enjoy listening to choirs this is a real treat. A whole day of it for a very reasonable price.  And we’d love to see your friendly face in the audience.  

29-31 March  Rome Yes, some of us are off to Rome. One of our members has contact with a choir there and so we’re delighted to be working with the Coro della Colina. Extra rehearsals for some of us now!

15 June Chorlton Choirs festival We’ll again be taking part in this festival. It is a relaxed, quite informal occasion and was really good fun last year. It is open to a public audience. Details to follow.

6 July  We’re off to the Llangollen Eisteddfod for the whole day. We’re not competing but we’re performing. This is a public-facing event. If you happen to be there that day, look out for us.

13 July Swinton Grove Family Fun Day. We’ll be there right at the beginning, helping to open the event.  We’ve attended this event many times before and it’s lovely.  Good food including excellent ice cream on offer.  If you come along, you may be able to combine it with a visit to the Gaskell House.     

20 July Buxton Fringe Festival  Again we offer two concerts: 11.00 a.m. at the United Reformed Church and 3.00 p.m. at St Mary’s. Tickets are already on sale. More details here.  This is one of our A Cappella and cake events so you’ll also be able to enjoy some delicious snacks. The Buxton Fringe anyway is full of delightful entertainment.  Take a look at their brochure.  Items are being added constantly.   

Some of our events are still under discussion and awaiting confirmation.  These include charity concerts, community events, workshops and no doubt plenty of Christmas activity in December and late November.  Watch this space.
