Saturday 19th March was the first rehearsal of Sing for Water North 2016 and several of our choir went along to Accrington Library. There were apparently 52 of us there, all poised, excited and waiting to sing. Our inspiring and energetic teachers were Jules Gibb, Olwyn Pearce and our own lovely Janet Swan. I am new to singing, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect from our day but I have to say I absolutely loved it and haven’t stopped singing the songs since (much to my husband’s amusement!)
There are six songs to learn for the final performance which will be in Albert Square in Manchester on 12th June. By the end of a rather tiring, but hugely inspiring 5 hours, we had learned 4 of them and raised £460 for Wateraid! Two more rehearsals in Manchester if you missed the Accrington one and we’ll be learning the other songs at our own choir sessions…then we’ll be ready for our big sing so we’d love everyone to spread the word and to come along and support us.
