As mild as it still is in Somerset, the darker evenings leave no doubt that we are well into autumn. How easy it is to go into hibernation, particularly when faced with the thought of a dark journey to practice sessions - Pete our musical director has the longest journey of all from Lyme Regis. The noticeboard in the hall at Huish Episcopi Academy reminds us why the effort is well worth while.
Getting together with friends we have missed throughout the summer months is such a great pleasure too. We particularly enjoyed seeing Bernie back this term to make up our base numbers.
Keen as ever to promote the benefits of singing, we were delighted to set up a stand for the morning recently in Langport Library. We are a very happy bunch and it is likely that we generated a bit more merriment than a library is used to!
And so our Monday evenings are now happily being spent learning new songs for our autumn and winter performances. We have made great inroads on learning three new pieces this term, plus we have started on our first Christmas carol! Our next performance is with other passionate Somerset choirs at the Edgar Hall in Somerton on Friday 9th November 2018.
And for the diary our first Christmas performance will be with the Meeting Voices Choir at the Chard Guildhall on Saturday 15th December 2018.
Please do come along to see us and support the great causes for both of these events.
