Rehearsal Planning 28.09.22 – 8-9pm

It’s our evening session this time! Hope lots of you can come along and share the singing joy.

We’ll have a warm up and get ourselves in the mood for singing.

I’d like to start with ‘Angels’ – we’ve talked about learning the harmonies and it has scored well in the polls.

While we are in this gentle mood, we’ll have one last sing through of the Rose – this is to be recorded by Saturday pretty please!!!

I’d like to have a go at Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – it’s become a massive favourite with my singers and you might just love it.

We’ll have a break, a chat etc. Then, let’s try this…

And back again over this

And we’ll finish on something else new….

We’ll learn the next bit of ‘The Rose’

I’d love to have a sing through of ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’ from the new ABBA album with you to see what you think.

Then let’s stay with the Don’ts for the next two!

And……

See you on Wednesday!

I’m interested to see what you make of this one…..

And we said we’d have a go at this!

We’ll have a little bit of feel good singing too..

I wonder if you’d like to try singing a lovely version of ‘The Rose’ with ‘We are sailing’? It’s quite charming.

I’d like a little throw back to something we sang ages ago…

It’s the morning slot again! A little pocket of happiness to brighten your day.

Voting has suggested that 1000 years is our next recording project! Yippee!!

I’ll teach this and go over it again for the next session on Wednesday 13th July. I’ll create the videos and files for uploading materials and we’ll get it mixed ready for our final session before the summer break (27th July)

I’ll get the new term dates out from September really soon and I’m delighted that we will be continuing after Christmas too!

It’s never too late to join us so please share our choir with your colleagues wherever you can.

We voted to sing a new song too! ‘Human’ by the Killers so we’ll make a start on the harmony parts for this.

I’d like to look forward to the summer with you all!

In keeping with our summer theme, let’s go back to ‘The Summer of 69’ which we sang last year

And a little bit of ‘Club Tropicana’!

Rehearsal Planning 08.06.22 (9-9.30am)

Ready to go!!??

We’ll have a warm up, something sunny and lovely.

I’d like one last go at ‘Together Again’ – if possible, you could use this opportunity to film yourself singing so I’ve enough footage to use for our video. I may well use the zoom footage from rehearsal today so please have your camera on if you can!

Let’s have a go at some the harmonies in ‘Memories’

Let’s brighten up the day with ‘Walking on sunshine’ (which does have some harmonies should we choose to accept them!)

I’d love to try a bit more of the Killers…

And we’ll finish with ‘The lion sleeps tonight’
