Thanks to everyone who made our songs in spring concert so special! Who would have thought we could fit six community choirs, a drinks interval and a cockney/music hall sing-a-long in one concert and still have time for a visit to the pub afterwards?!
It was a really great night – the feedback has been terrific and it was interesting listening to the other choirs and having the chance to chat to them. There was so much variety and joining up together gives us the chance to hear what others are working on. I particularly loved the Witchita Lineman arrangement by the Kenningtones – it may make an appearance at some point!
So we’re nearly at the end of term – just one rehearsal left but it’ll be a good one as it’s our cheese and wine night! You know the drill – so see you there!
If you’re not able to make it – very best wishes for a lovely Easter holiday and see you again next term – see the calendar for details!
No, this is not a description of one of our choir rehearsals – rather, our silent film night – which this year entertained the good folk of Herne Hill as part of their 2017 music festival. It was loads of fun as always and of course, 1920’s film night requires 1920’s outfits! (The band had special dispensation to wear fezzes). Don’t ask.
Silent film night really has become a bit of a Camberwell institution. We don’t think any other community choirs do this kind of thing. Don’t miss the next one in 2018! Speaking of not to be missed…
is choir wine and cheese night. You are cordially invited to bring your favourite smelly cheeses, crackers, nibbles and wines to our now legendary soirée.
We always need a few extra bits and pieces such as chopping boards etc – see our choir social page on Facebook for the latest list or just ask at a rehearsal.
Please Note – St Giles’ were hoping to host a short concert beforehand at 6.30pm which would have been free for community choir members but it’s been cancelled due to illness. It’s probably for the best as wine was due to be served there too… See you on the 14th!
Yes – cheese and wine night is approaching again and this term we’ll be dedicating Tuesday 21st of February to our celebration of all things cheese & wine. Actually you can bring anything – nibbles, beer or whatever you fancy and come along to sing and make merry.
Just don’t be late – I camembert people who are late… (promise that’s the last one).
Also – Choir leader Aga, Ros Walker, Carmel Boylan, Becki Cox, and Claire Macmillen have signed up to do the NUTS Challenge – a ridiculously tough, muddy obstacle course in freezing-cold March. It will be painful but it’s all for a jolly good cause – a charity called Child Rescue Nepal. They’re part of a big team called Team Saltus.
The team will be accepting donations so if you can give a few quid, not only will it help vulnerable children in Nepal, it will help them get through the mudbath that little bit faster. You can read about the charity and about the NUTS challenge on JustGiving – links below – they all have fundraising pages, so feel free to share the love!
