Latest Information

Message from Rachael to all Choir Members:

Just to recap on the information you were given on Thursday.

Thursday 30th June

Please be at Tongwynlais Village Hall for 7.30 pm ready to start the concert at 8pm.

The music you will need is:- Abba, Amazing Grace, Lennon & McCartney, My Fair Lady, Deus Salutis, Thanks Be To God, Tydi.

All choir members will need to bring their own plate of food, their own and their guests drink of choice, and their own glasses.

Food will only be provided for guests.

If you are bringing guests and have not yet paid for or had a ticket from Mary, please let Mary Cook know asap as we need to be sure we have catered for all guests.

Ladies – we will be wearing black trousers, black tops and red scarves.

Men – black trousers, white shirts and red ties.

Please can everyone make sure we help to clear up after the event so that is not left to a few people.

Thursday 7th July

Please be at Bethel Chapel (opposite St Mary’s Church) Whitchurch at 6.20pm for a final rehearsal before the concert at St Mary’s Church starts at 7.30pm.

We will definitely need Abba & My Fair Lady, but will let you know if you need anything else.

This year will see the first performance of Whitchurch High School’s Chamber Choir, please stay at the concert to hear them perform, as we all know there is nothing worse or disheartening than half the audience disappearing at the interval or during a concert.

Dress code is the same as the week before.

Final note – a message from Linda – it is disappointing to see so many people away from the last few practices, we totally understand that people have holidays, but when we are putting dates in the diary we need to know who is going to be available and at practice to ensure we are performing at our best. Please ensure that you attend all practices, but if you are unavailable then please let me (Linda) know.

Final, final note – Choir will end with the concert on the 7th July, but will restart on 8th September in preparation for our Christmas season. For those of you who have the music “Love Transcending” please bring it with you to the first rehearsal, if you don’t have it please let Mike JP know.

Thanks all, see you Thursday


Next Concert

The next concert will be on 30th June at Tongwynlais Village Hall, 7:30 for 8:00 pm and following that there will be another concert on 7th July at St Mary’s Church, Whitchurch.
