Lovely to see you all last night and to meet some new singers!

Our poll says it all

We’ll continue to work on The Rose/We are sailing next time as we will be jointly recording this with the ICU Choir this term.

We can also work more on Angels – I’ll arrange something x

Loved the responses to ‘how do you feel after singing’ last night xxxxx.

Lovely end of term! Thanks for coming.

We listened to some Carpenters and agreed to work on this next time (September)

We’ve Only Just Begun

I’ve also asked if you could pop a sentence to me on WhatsApp as we try to spread the choir joy recruiting new singers and luring back those who have fallen by the wayside! Just a reason to join the choir please so that I can make it into a cave slide and we can share far and wide.

Thank you all. I’ve really enjoyed reconnecting with you this season and look forward to more!

Lovely sing along today!

We worked on ‘1000 Years’ – DEADLINE SATURDAY AT MIDNIGHT!

We also worked on the first ‘We are sailing’ art from ‘The Rose’ which is truly lovely.

Up tempo (slightly… too hot for much else!) with ‘The Best Day of My Life’ which is a great tune. ‘Eternal Flame’ was our throwback song and we finished with ‘Summer of 69’.

Next week is our final session before our summer break and I’m asking for suggestions (I may live to regret this decision) – pop them in the WhatsApp group and I’ll see what I can do xxxxx

Lovely to see you all last night!

I talked a little bit about the Code of Conduct which can be found on your website. This is a choir leader industry thing and isn’t aimed at anyone our any particular problem. It’s there to protect you and me and is fairly straight forward. I will share the link in the WhatsApp group too.

We had a go through on both parts for 1000 years – I’d like everyone to record both please. The conducting videos are on this website with the folders to upload to. You know how it all works!

We started a new song ‘The Rose / We are sailing’ which went down really well. It’s a beautiful arrangement by Abi Moore. We worked through the first verse in all of the three parts. Well done everyone! I think this is going to be a winner….

Then we sang some old classics – Eternal Flame and Happy Ending.

I taught the chorus harmonies for Club Tropicana. This is so that you can belt it out with your mates over the summer and wow them with your harmonises – you’re welcome. And we finished with Lovely Day.

We learned the harmonies for ‘1000 Years’ again which is our recording project.


And we happily sang Little Lies, Waterloo and This is Me!

See you all next week for the evening slot.

Thanks for bearing with me today while I did this….. we call it ‘zoom doom’ amongst the online choir brigade! In my haste to get started for part 2, I’ve sent the audio to be saved in a mysterious location and now can’t find it….. I will do better!


NHSBT 08.06.22 Part 2

It was lovely to see you all today! Really pleased with the sound we’ve created on ‘Together Again’ – well done and thank you to everyone who took part in the audio recording. Now for the video…. PLEASE send something in!! Even if you’re not on the audio recording! You’re still here and part of the project! I’ll be making a first cut on Friday so please get as much to me as possible by Thursday evening.

‘Human’ by the Killers came top of the poll and so we’ll start to learn that at the next session which is Wednesday 15th June 8-9pm.

…. and this really made my day. Thank you xxx
