Looking back on a successful spring/summer 2015

What a fantastic time we had over the last term with some great concerts and events.

Choir Workshop with Scot Stroman
On the 16th May we hosted our first choir workshop. We were joined by Bowes Park Choir and Choirs r Us and had a  great time learning new singing techniques. Our guest choral leader for the day was the superb Scot Stroman who gave us lots of energy and a fun filled day. We hope to run similar workshos in the future, so look out for our announcements. Some pictures from the day:

That’s Entertainment 2015 at the Watersmeet Theatre, Rickmansworth
We were delighted to be invited to close the Three Rivers Council’s Chairman’s Review on the 22nd May. The concert itself was a great event ending with the audience joining us in a rendition of Abba’s Thank You For The Music. Our performance was helped by our unusual rehearsal outside the Council Offices. It was a beautiful evening and the al fresco rehearsal really set us up for the show as can be seens in these pictures:

Summer Concert at Bushey Academy
Our term ended with our concert in the superb surroundings of Bushey Academy’s Great Hall. We were again joined by Choirs r Us who performed as our guest choir and joined us for two numbers. The event was a sell out and the audience really supported us. Everything came together for a wonderful evening at what was probably our best concert to date.

Coming up soon
Our new term starts on the 8th September and we will be working hard towards our next concerts. On the 17th October we will be travelling to Bexhill-on-Sea for a concert in our Choir Director Simon Wookey’s home town. And then on 12th December we will have our Christmas Concert at St John’s Church, Watford.

Keep checking our Events page and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon.
