Singing for Pleasure

Welcome to the Singing Group!

A Message from David Swann, the Tutor:

Dear Singers
It is with reluctance and some sadness that I have this to write to you.
In recent months attendance at the Singing group has been poor, with never the same people present week on week. This has led to a significant decline in the quality of our singing, and we are not able to perform at a standard that is good enough for the performances that we have booked. I am therefore cancelling these bookings.

Most of the group will be aware that with reduced numbers, there is reduced income and with the numbers attending this week not enough to pay for the room hire. We are therefore cancelling the room hire.

Given these difficulties, John and I have had a discussion about the group and feel it no longer possible for us to continue. We have, therefore, agreed to give up our roles with the Singing group with immediate effect.

We have enjoyed our time leading the group and I feel that we have given audiences -and singers - some pleasure. Hopefully the group will resume in the future under new leadership.
