MEMBERSHIP UPDATE

We are an a cappella choir, i.e. we sing songs unaccompanied in 4 or more parts. We tend to work on traditional songs and 'folky' contemporary music, rather than great masterpieces such as those by Handel etc. You do not need to be able to read music though this is an advantage. The individual lines are taught to each part. As each section becomes more confident the different parts are put together so that by the time of the performance we can offer complete compositions with lovely melodies and beautiful harmonies.

We sing regularly at the Taize Services held at St. Lawrence's in Bourton-on-the-Water and are scheduled to participate in two more before the end of the year, i.e. 29th September and 29th December. In addition we have 3 bookings for December and look forward to proclaiming the joys of the Season to residents in Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water as well as taking part in the 2019 Christmas Cracker at the British Legion.

We are currently on Summer Break. Rehearsals recommence on 20th September, 2019 when we will start work on our Winter and Christmas programme.

If you would like to make enquiries about joining next year please contact Annette Smith via the bird link above.
