East Leake Singers, welcome to West Bridgford!
We will be seated differently to start with. I’d like you to try and sit in your colours mixing the 2 larger choirs together. We’ll run some of the ‘together’ songs first – then we’ll have each choir ‘perform’ to the rest of us starting as we will on the concert night with the Liberty Belles, then East Leake, then West Bridgford. We’ll each pick a ‘show off’ song to sing. It’s really good to perform to a completely appreciative audience and I know from experience that you’ll all really benefit from it.
I plan to get through every song and I know that’s a lot to ask. I won’t be note bashing anything or running parts or stop starting if I can help it. So please, don’t talk through the introductions and be ready with your first word!
West Bridgford Singers are providing some nibbles etc for afterwards when we’ll open up the bar and we have the building until 10pm. You’re all very welcome to stay.
Although this is a concert rehearsal, anyone not singing is very, very welcome to come along. Please do come and see the year out in style with us.
