A lovely rehearsal yesterday full of determined energy and willingness to meet the differing challenges of such wonderful music. Thank you!
Thank you too for demonstrating your extraordinary generosity for KRAN (Kent Refugee Action Network) following the rehearsal. The bucket revealed a total of £182.30 … our strap line caring through singing made manifest.
A reminder that we will rehearse next on Wednesday 24 February. The end of this choral term will be on March 23 when at 18.00 we will welcome friends to present a choral snapshot of work in hand and works revisited. We will be joined by Alex Ryder, harp, in Bernstein Chichester Psalms. I propose that we have an extra rehearsal on Tuesday March 22 17.30/19.00.
The summer term begins on April 20 and full details will be posted at a later date with regard to additional repertoire to be rehearsed. I am delighted that we will welcome Kerry Boyle as director in my absence.
This Sunday, February 14, David Rees Williams gives a very special piano recital as part of Canterbury Music Club programme. (http://canterburymusicclub.com/concerts.html)
Please can I ask you and to encourage your friends and acquaintances to experience Cantata choir ( 28 voices) Bach St John Passion on March 20 at the Colyer Fergusson Hall. For details and poster please go to the Events/Coming Soon page.
All best wishes
