Returning to chorus after lockdown
As a small chorus we were able to return to singing almost as soon as restrictions were lifted in July. It was great to meet up with friends again and to sing through some of our repertoire. Although we were rather rusty to start with we soon found our voices again.
As a celebration, we decided to have a meal together at a local restaurant and for the first time in eighteen months we were able to sing in public.
Visit by Our Regional Rep
Our Regional Rep - Jacqui Edwards - paid us her annual visit on September 28th. We had a good evening although our numbers were depleted due to holidays and sickness.
Sing at Christmas
Our 'Sing at Christmas' course began on 12th October. We invited ladies to join us in learning some of our old favourite and some new Christmas Carols and songs. Any of our visitors who feel confident enough by December have been invited to join us in two of our regular Christmas sing-outs.
We were delighted to be invited back again this year to sing at the remembrance service held by Lee Fletcher Funeral Services. A small group of us attended the service in the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist Portsmouth on Wednesday 10th November. The chosen charity this year was 'Hounds for Heroes'.
