Remember folks, it is half-term for the school this week, so there will be no rehearsal. We reconvene on Wednesday 27th Feb at the usual time and in the usual place. With all best wishes for a nice break from your committee.
Folks, just in case anyone did see the photos, apologies, they have been removed again until we have permission from people.
See you on Wednesday – usual time and place.
Lovely to see people back after our break for the festive season and also to see so many new faces! It felt like there was a great buzz to this week’s rehearsal, so for those of you who use the spotify music streaming service (it’s free with ads, or £9.99 per month with no ads from spotify.com), here is a recommended link to a version of the African Sanctus. When you click it, it will open in a new browser tab, where you need to login with your free or paid spotify account, then click play.
See you and possibly even more new members next week – same time same place.
First rehearsal will be in the Music Room, Chipping Norton School on Wednesday 9th January 2019.
The Committee looks forward to seeing everyone there!
Hoping you’ve had a lovely Christmas and that you have a Happy New Year.
The CNCS concert on Saturday 15 December was a huge success. The Cheltenham Chamber Orchestra were magnificent, as were our wonderful soloists Carris Jones and James Berry. A concert very much enjoyed by all who were there.
