Singing for Fun

March 2018 Newsletter

The singers got together with the ukulele group for the Christmas Open Meeting, singing favourites such as When the Red, Red Robin, Go Tell it on the Mountain, Calypso Carol and Jingle Bell Rock. We also sang Silver Bells and the beautiful O Holy Night. Our efforts received warm applause and the final We Wish You a Merry Christmas also had audience participation.

All are welcome to join us in 2018.

The Singing for Fun group made a successful first public appearance at the Christmas meeting. We sang While Shepherds Watched and were ably supported by the Ukele group in Jingle Bell Rock, Calypso Carol and Winter Wonderland. We rounded off our performance encouraging the audience to join in with We Wish You a Merry Christmas. We’re looking forward to our next public performance at the Group Fair in March.

Contact Elizabeth Le Marchant Brock for more information.

December 2016 Newsletter

Our recent sessions have included practising for the Christmas concert which will see our first public performance. We will be ably supported on the day by the Ukulele Group and we enjoyed the chance to sing with them in September. With each session, we’re becoming more confident and adventurous in what we do encouraged, as always, by Margaret.

September 2016 Newsletter

We’re now becoming used to singing together and adding more numbers to our repertoire. Particularly we’ve enjoyed singing Amazing Grace and other songs which allow us to have a go at harmonies, since we have some good male and deeper female voices. The men also contribute some excellent whistling during Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. In addition, we’re discovering the inner Latin in us with Hernando’s Hideaway. We do have a waiting list but we’d love you to join us and enjoy the fun.
