The recent concert at the museum was a success in spite of the small audience. I think we might have felt lonely had it not been for husbands and former choir members who came to support us, so a big thank you to them.
The AGM ran smoothly and at an acceptable pace which meant that it was completed within an hour. Thank you to Pauline for guiding us through and keeping us on track. Thanks also go to the four volunteers who came forward afterwards offering to set out chairs before concerts. We still need people to organise social events or even just one.
The uniform we wear for concerts has become more relaxed in that we can choose our own tops and opt for long black skirts or trousers. However, this has led to a variety of interpretations as to what is acceptable, so to ensure that we present as a unified group, we ask that you follow the choir dress code which is:
Full length black skirt or
Black trousers - no jeans
Cream top - long or ¾ length sleeves - no sequins or sparkles
Black top - long or ¾ length sleeves - no sequins or sparkles
Black or nearly black tights or pop socks
Black shoes - no boots or sandals
Much enjoyment was had looking at the albums and photos brought to choir practice and spotting choir members past and present. Thank you to Jan and Tina for keeping a photographic record of how the choir has changed over the years.
An updated diary list is being sent with this newsletter. Please note that there will be the usual choir practice on 14th June as well as the extra practice with the TMVC on Monday 11th June at St Michael’s Church Galmington.
A table has been booked for Rumwell Farm shop Café on Wednesday 23rd May at 2.30.
Next month we will be meeting at Stable Cottage, Triscombe instead and Pauline is pleased to say that we have a full complement of 25 people going. Numbers are limited to the indoor accommodation available, should it be wet! (but we hope that it won’t be).
