We have an invitation to sing which I’m passing on to the whole choir as everyone knows Songs of Peace. If anyone would like to group together / share cars for a day out, I’m happy to co-ordinate and liaise with Rachel ( I’m away that weekend otherwise I’d have gone up too!).

Hope you are all well and recovered from the excitement of New York! Apologies for such a slow reply on my part, its all been a bit hectic over here!
Regarding possible link-ups, on our part- we have a concert here at 6pm Sunday 19th May (we would expect it to finish by around 8pm). If possible we would love to do a few pieces of our New York repertoire during that concert however as we only have 7 members who came to New York, we would be very grateful for the back up- especially tenors and basses if possible, but any help welcomed! The concert is the final part of a charity family fun day here at the university, as well as the concert there are lots of activities during the day including childrens activites, science stalls, a beer festival, an art show, and a range of food options! We would expect an audience of 300 ish. If some of your members fancied joining us then we would be thrilled to have them. There are slots for music at a bandstand during the day, so if timing allowed then we could do the repertoire both then and in the evening to give slightly more for your members to do! Provided there weren't too many we could provide them with free entry to the event, if there are a few more though we would give it at a reduced rate of £2/£3- as it is for charity. I've attached a poster for the event, our address is Sutton Bonington Campus, University of Nottingham, College Road, Sutton Bonington Leicestershire, LE12 5RD, so you can work out how far the trip would be for you guys and whether any of you would fancy it.
Let me know your thoughts, we wont be offended either way as I realise this is rather late notice!
Singing feeds the soul, enriches the mind and adds immensely to the enjoyment of life - great thing to do for health, happiness and well-being. Please join us!
We perform with professional orchestras and soloists of the highest calibre. We love singing and constantly strive to raise our performance.
We regularly perform in All Saints which has an amazing accoustic and we take part in concerts in stunning venues elsewhere - most recently some of our singers sang with Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) at David Geffen Hall Lincoln Centre, New York.
Our fantastic conductor, Howard Sayer, brings inspirational leadership and a wealth of experience, not to mention a lot of fun to our singing!
We sing a wide variety of music, with emphasis on newer works by living composers. We also hold singing days where we meet other singers and invite distinguished conductors.
We have fun! We make friends, and some of us go to the pub after rehearsals each week. We organise social events, singing days, quiz nights and anything else that members might like to arrange...
