Marple - Hale - Wilmslow - Week Beginning Monday 16th October

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” - Helen Keller


Morning everyone!


I am not quite sure where to begin, except to say that last night was just amazing!

It really was.


It’s funny, because when we do our warm up before the weekly session, I use this to gage how well a rehearsal is going to go. I absolutely knew right from the very first note of our rehearsal yesterday, that it was going to be something very special.


Sorry for how long it took me to seat everyone. It is never easy and it’s a bit like trying to do a seating plan for your wedding reception but whilst the guests are stood in the room(!!) If you didn’t quite sit where you wanted to, or if you didn’t manage to sit with a friend, I am sorry… but the sound was just beautiful and well balanced.


Please extend my gratitude to all your friends and family who came to support us last night. They made such a lovely audience!


A big thank you to Keith for doing us a little souvenir video. Thank you so much for giving up your time. I will upload this as soon as I can and will send you all a link. I will say, however, any video will never replace or replicate live performance. And last night was truly stunning. It really was!


A little note to our soloists… Just WOW!!!! It was a pleasure to sit and listen to your amazing talent. They were such great song choices and every note just sounded so heartfelt! Just brilliant!


Also, thanks to Kev for his tribute to lockdown and also his very kind words re the hard work that went into keeping the choir alive during this period. Isn’t it so wonderful we can get back to live performances again.


To our amazing choir… Haven’t we come such a long way! All I can say is that last night you really delivered! It was a performance that I can only describe as ‘exuberant’! So full of passion and energy - just the way it should be :)


A huge well done to everyone!



We can’t sit around for too long as we now have some CHRISTMAS CONCERTS!!!!


I will send out a reminder and a full list asap but for now, please can you bring along to the rehearsals this week…


Carol Of The Bells

O’ Holy Night

Walking In The Air

Xmas Carol Medley (Not Christmas Medley!)


Let’s get cracking with our Christmas concerts! Please have a listen to familiarise yourself with these new songs!


See you all this week!

Mike
