A good start

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.

What a triumph!

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.
