Today (June 27th) marks the start of our summer fund raising effort.As we are missing our annual concert this year as the choir rebuilds itself, we are trying to raise funds over the next couple of weeks by members scaling The Wrekin,having gained sponsors from friends and family. “Singing Up The Wrekin” may not involve much singing, but it is quite an effort for some of our older members!!
Tim Wasdell and Ged Heyes started the campaign bright and early this morning, on an absolutely beautiful summers morning .Hopefully they will be followed over the next few days by more members as we try to raise money to help the choir’s costs.
Meanwhile the integration of new members into the choir continues as Anne is trying to establish a core of musical items with which all members are confident. In fact the process is more difficult than it sounds because older members now realise that they have to relearn items which they have been singing wrongly possibly for some time.
Anyway we are practising hard and making good progress.We are desperately short of new basses especially so if there is anybody out there who is interested, please get in touch.
