The Adelaide Singers

Phillipa Davies425021

We meet every Friday, 2.00 – 4.00pm. at 9, Adelaide Road, from September to April. We sing madrigals, traditional folk songs, anthems and nonsense songs, and it helps to be able to read music! New voices welcome in all parts. This group does not meet from May to the beginning of September.

The Adelaide Singers at their traditional summer garden party…22 YEARS ON!

THEN (written by Phillipa Davies)
In 1992 the Madrigal Group was born with eight intrepid members, three of whom are still with us.
Two years in Marie Twomey wrote: “I went along and found out two things – I’m not as clever as I think I am and the Madrigal singers group is better than the Little and Large show any day of the week.
Try singing “fa-la-la-ing” repeatedly; it’s enough to make a cat laugh! Since my (paid) working life is over, I refuse to do things unless they challenge me or give me pleasure. The Madrigal group does both and I hope it will continue for a long time”.
AND NOW (written by Joan Rutledge)
I so look forward to Friday afternoons. We meet at Phillipa’s house, and sing for about an hour and a half – folksongs, madrigals, nonsense songs and so on – followed by tea and biscuits and time to chat.
This is a very friendly group and I don’t have to cringe when I make a mistake! Over the time I’ve been coming my sight reading has improved and I feel more confident about holding my part.
We sometimes sing for a church group or a local nursing home and while I enjoy singing for other people I think the group is about the pleasure of singing together rather than performance.
To end the year we have a garden party at Myrtle’s in Oxhill, with singing, and strawberries and cream… and much more, and this year we had a cake to celebrate our 21years.( In fact 22 years!)
On behalf of all the group I would like to thank Phillipa for her hospitality and all the work she does to give us the pleasure of being The Adelaide Singers.
