The conducting videos are all on the website and the deadline for recordings is Saturday 19th December please. this gives me time to mix and present back to you before Christmas.

We’ll stay a little festive with ‘White Winter Hymnal’

and I thought we could have a lovely go at ‘Carol of the Bells’

Tea Breakout…. then back to business!

Let’s go full of 80’s with ‘Last Chtistmas’

And a little bit of The Ronettes…

Let’s go for ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’!

And we’ll finish with our version of 2000 Miles from our recording last year.

Lovely to see you today! We went through the chorus harmonies for ‘Somewhere only we know’ as this is our next recording project. We are going to try to promote this to get some more singers involved! Lovely to se Rosie as ever.

We sng ‘A Little Respect’ just to lift us – your recording of course. We then went briefly through the parts for ‘White Winter hymnal’ which is an acapella song originally by the Fleet Foxes but more recently re-imagined by Pentatonix. It’s gorgeous.

We walked in a ‘Winter Wonderland’ ands finished with your recording of ‘Let it Be’.

A very positive poll today!

Lovely morning session today! Thanks to all who joined us.

We made a start on the oohs for ‘Somewhere only we know’. I’ll post the harmonies today. This will be out next recording project and I’d like everyone to take 2 parts…. I will explain in the sessions x

We had a sing through of ‘White Winter Hymnal’ which sent a few of you down a Pentatonix hole on you tube!

‘Summer Son’ was very much enjoyed and we finished with the total classic ‘California Dreamin”. Loved the feedback from today xxxx

Lovely to see you all last night! We sang and learned and chatted and even got Chris’ baby to sleep! Hurray!

Looking at the poll for the song last night…

We’ll continue a little longer with ‘Angels’ and we can make a good start on ‘Somewhere only we know’ which might be a lovely song for us to record next!? Our next two sessions are mornings so we’ll keep songs upbeat and jolly lovely for those, then our next evening session on the 30th November feels like a really good time to start Christmas singing in full!

See you next Wednesday morning!
