October Newsletter

Welcome to our new choir members Sarah (Alto) and Imogen (Soprano). You have joined us at an exciting time for the choir, singing at the RAH, for which we have been preparing during the past 18 months. Please would existing choir members remember to wear your name badges - it’s easy to forget but it does help new people to know who they are talking to.

The concert with the Ukulele Strummers at West Buckland church went well despite depleted numbers and it was an enjoyable evening. It was good to try some of the concert pieces and emphasised (for me) that more word memorising is still needed.

RAH Information

Marianne has heard that the tickets for the RAH concert will be sent out within the next 2 weeks. She has already received tickets for the extra meals and coach transfers (from the RAH to the hotel) for those who have ordered and paid. These will be distributed on Thursday.

The exact timings for pick-up on Friday 2nd November have not yet been sent to us. However, it’s likely to be late morning/early afternoon. We have requested two pick-up places: Tangier Car Park, Taunton and Junction 24 car park for those who will park their cars over the weekend. Ros will need to have a list of where you intend to be picked up, so could you let Ros know at choir practice or via email?

Taunton Deane Male Voice Choir are holding their Armistice concert to commemorate the end of the First World War. Also taking part are Taunton Military Wives Choir and the Royal Air Force Association Concert Band. The concert starts at 7.30 on Saturday 27th October at St Mary Magdalene, Taunton.

Tickets sold in aid of SSAFA, cost £15 (under 16s £8)

Christmas cards – As in previous years, Barbara will be selling Christmas cards in aid of the Children’s Hospice. She will be bringing them on 18th October.

There have been fewer of us the last couple of times we have met at Rumwell Café, maybe due to the lovely weather and holidays. Do we want to continue with meeting once a month? Please let Ros know your thoughts on this.
