Early in 2019 we held an eight week SINGING COURSE which had started  on 10th January 2019 and attracted ten new members. To mark it’s conclusion  we, together with the course participants, held  a “Mini” CONCERT   on  Thursday 7th March  at the Methodist Church, Shelford Rd., RoT, for partners and friends at which 10 numbers were sung, 5 of which were learnt during the course.  

This was an enjoyable event which, incidentally, also raised £386 for Prostate  Cancer Charities.

For details of the first performances of the  2018/19 season see below –

15th December 2018 saw our Christmas Concerts :

In early November 2018 we were proudly part of 2 events commemorating the end of WW1.  These were, on Saturday Nov 3rd, a concert at  All Saints Church, Cotgrave for the local British Legion Poppy appeal;  and on Thursday Nov 8th,  at St Mary’s Radcliffe on Trent in support of RoTs U3A  exhibition illustrating the effects of  WW1  on this village.  

Our first Concert of the 2018/19 season was held at St Peters, Ravenshead, on Saturday 20th October where a full house clearly appreciated the efforts of both ourselves and those of a young lady Soloist, Becky Birch.  As you listen, you can hear echoes of the great female singers, yet her style and voice is uniquely her own.  If you get chance, hear her soon, as she is auditioning for drama schools in 2019 to realise her dream to perform.
