Just a reminder!

Don’t forget that there’s no choir this week but you can still go ahead with registration for Sing for Water by following the link https://singforwaternorth.wordpress.com/registrations/

We’ll be back next week, 3rd March, for another 6 weeks (block subscriptions acceptable again if that’s suitable).

Meantime, keep singing!

Sing for Water North… everything you need to know!

Sing for Water North – everything you need to know and an extra request for help
As you all know there is an extra session on Saturday 14th March at Padiham Road Methodist Church in Burnley for Sing for Water North. Even if you can’t make the Sing for Water North event in Preston in June, or this event in March, please keep reading as you will defintely be able to help us raise extra funds for Water Aid!!
If you have already registered to join the Sing for Water event in Preston on Saturday 13th June, the event in Burnley will be free. However you are welcome to come along on the 14th March even if you haven’t decided yet about June. In that case we are asking for donations in the region of £5 – £10 for the Saturday.
If you can’t come to the Burnley rehearsal or the June event, you can still help to raise funds for Water Aid by baking a cake for the 14th March as we welcome people from choirs all over the North West.
See this link for the information on the Sing for Water North website – including information about timings, lunch arrangements, parking etc. And if possible do invite friends to come along!
Also – please remember choir is ON this week (18th Feb) but not on the following week (25th Feb).

Stormy weather

We all really hope that the wind eases for tomorrow so that we can get to choir safely. Do keep an eye on the website – and maybe check it just before you set off if the weather is bad. It is here that we will be posting about any cancellations. But of course we will get there – we will be having another go at Ide Were Were that we started on last week and definitely finishing off / consolidating “I call to you”. This got shelved last week because of wanting to sing “Follow the Heron – the back of the winter is broken!”  It is! – let’s hope so!

February already!

Choir on Tuesday 4 February will be all about making sure that we have mastered songs that we have been learning in the last few weeks – especially “I call to you” which was starting to sound gorgeous last week. Also we will start to learn the words for “Ide Were Were”- one of the African songs for Sing for Water North. Here is a little video clip – do have a listen before you come – it will really help!! Incidentally this video clip is from the Sing for Water event in London a few years ago – it gives you an idea of what to expect if you have never sung in a mass sing event!
