Dear Amici singers,
I hope you have all had a relaxing and sun-filled summer and are full of energy for the new term of singing ahead leading to the Christmas performance. It is always lovely to return to singing after the break and feel the benefits of breathing life into our lungs again!
Amici commence rehearsals with Kerry next Wednesday 14th September at 5.30pm at St Paul’s Church to start work on Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in readiness for the concert on December 21st. Maggie has kindly organised ordering the scores which will be the Barenreiter Urtext edition at £10 each., so you will be able to collect these at the rehearsal.
Subscriptions remain at £25 per term or £70 for the year once again and for those of you eligible for gift aid, if you have not filled in a form for this, please help us to make your money work even harder for the trust by making sure you do so this term.
Please could you help us out by bringing along your payment as a cheque rather than cash and placing cheques in a sealed envelope with your name written on the outside and the amount (and what it is for). It would also be really helpful if cheques for the subs and music could be separate so as to make the gift aid claiming easier.
Thank you so much for your co-operation in this as it is no mean feat collating all those payments, and thanks are due to Anthea for her extremely well organised system . If you could make payments on either the 14th or 28th that would be a great help as Anthea will be away on the 21st.
Finally, look out for news coming soon on the fantastic new website taking shape thanks to Ben Knox: a great improvement!
See you all soon,
Chair, Canterbury Cantata Trust
