Run up to the concert

1) Monday 15/06/15 and Monday 22/06/15 – rehearsals will be in St Luke’s Church, Ramsden Road, SW12 8pm. These are our final two rehearsals when we begin to think seriously about seating. Thank you for checking off names on the lists, these will continue to circulate. Please tick, and indicate if you will be missing either of these rehearsals, or if you know someone who is not there but will be singing.

However, please do make every effort to be at these rehearsals, unless you know you will not be able to sing at the concert – we would ask you to drop out at this stage.

Tickets will be available – don’t forget to collect your allocation.

2) Barbecue – this is going to be a beautiful concert, perfectly formed, perfectly sung. We will follow it with our Barbecue. This is open to all members and any family and friends who have been in the audience. The arrangements will be as before –

£6.00 for the first drink + food (burger and sausages). Further drinks are then paid for The tickets for the barbecue will be available from the next rehearsal. This is a really fun way to end our concert and our season so do join in and bring your family/friends..

3) We will also be thinking about the concert arrangements. Please do sign up to help with the staging on Friday 26th in the evening.

We will also need bar staff and help with front of house. The lists will be going round – volunteers (friends/families) welcome. It makes a big difference if there are plenty of helpers. This is especially the case after the concert, when the more people who can lend a hand, the quicker the church is cleared. At present this is left to a small band of regulars; we would welcome new faces (and hands).

4) Final rehearsal Saturday 27th, 2pm St Luke’s Church, Ramsden Road SW12 – obligatory attendance if you intend to sing in the concert. Please arrive by 1.45pm in order to be seated. We try to keep the arrangement close to the positions of the rehearsals, but this is not completely possible, and you may find yourself in a slightly different seat.

Concert folders – remember to bring yours; there will be folders to borrow for the evening as well.

5) Concert Saturday 27th– 7.30pm. Choir to have arrived by 7.15pm. Remember to bring your music covers
Concert dress – Men: black dinner suits, white shirts and black bow ties
Ladies: all black; long/mid calf dresses/skirts/trousers. Sleeved tops. No obvious jewellery
Please do not have bottles of water or handbags on the stage during the performance. Bags can be kept in the Chancel or, even, better with friends or family in the audience.

You will be able to buy the music for next term at the concert.

6) A.G.M. – Monday 29th June, 8.00pm at 12 Earlsfied Road, SW18. Our host is Jan Passey. As always this is the opportunity for choir members to hear from our Chair and the committee and to learn about plans and aspirations. It is also your opportunity to comment. Above all it is a very enjoyable social occasion with wine and food to enhance the evening. Do put it in the diary and come along. We look forward to seeing you

We start rehearsing for our Winter Concert on Monday 7th September 2015
