FRIDAY 2ND DECEMBER Full rehearsal for Christmas concert at St Paul’s usual choir times 3.30-5pm.
SATURDAY 3RD DECEMBER – CONCERT ST PAUL’S CHURCH. ACTION NEEDED NOW🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶 CHRISTMAS PREPARATION: Look at our list of Christmas songs, if you have an urge for our choir to sing a particular song at our Christmas concert in aid of the Citizens Advice Bureau’s 70th year in Winchester, they are a registered charity and we are raising money to support the great service they offer to Winchester and the whole community, then send me a message by email. I cannot guarantee it will be sung, but the cream of our Christmas songs and requests that get the most votes will certainly make it onto the list. We will be singing a mixture of Christmas songs, a couple of carols and our all year round repertoire. Thanks to everyone that has put in requests, so far – Dona Nobis Pacem, O Holy night, Golden Slumbers, Carol of the Bells, Do you hear what I hear, River, Mary did you know.
Small groups: can you let me know if or what you would like to do.
Musical interlude: there is a grand piano. Anyone want to play?
Anything else? Any ideas, anything you want to do? Again, I cannot guarantee we can fit it in but if it will add something beautiful to our Christmas event then please suggest it. Send me an email.
firstname.lastname@example.org – or any other email address you have – all will reach me.
