Well, we have spent six arduous weeks working on the repertoire,primarily to bring new members up to speed,but in doing so it has revealed to existing members how their “knowledge” of the repertoire has been in some cases shown to be faulty. However, well played to the faithful band who have shown up unfailingly to work hard on the music,and hopefully gain more confidence in what we are doing.Many thanks to Anne and Jade , as normal, but more so in this case for the work Anne has done in putting together the rehearsal tracks on tape so people can work on them individually at home. Thanks also due to Mike for his work on putting together the library of music and getting sufficient copies of music together so all members, new and old, can get their hands on the copies they need.
So now we look forward to a busy Autumn . It seems like a long time since our last outing on May 1st for the celebration of Arthur Roberts’ work in the town.
Dates are as follows:
Saturday October 3rd-St. Andrew’s Church, Shifnal, with the children of the school, and Possibly “Of One Accord”(to be confirmed)
Sat.,10th Oct shared concert with Bridgnorth and Wenlock MVC’s in Bridgnorth Leisure Centre.7.30 pm.
Sat 31st Oct.7.30 pm our own concert at Kemberton Church.
Sat. Nov 14th Our own concert at St Mary’s Market Drayton
Sat 21st Nov. shared concert with Warley MVC in Halesowen.
Sat 12 th Dec, our Christmas concert at Wombridge church-7.30pm.
We have also enjoyed welcoming Adam Green from Radio Shropshire to a recent rehearsal in the wake of news on national television about the challenges facing male voice choirs across the country. Hopefully Adam’s item, to be aired in the next week or so, will give people a chance to listen to the choir in action, and witness the enthusiasm the choir members feel for the “cause”.
Here’s hoping for a busy and successful Autumn!!
