New Banners Ordered!

Well, we are getting close to the African Sanctus event, so we have ordered new banners ready to publicise it. Expect to see something like the following arriving soon. This time there will be four of them. I will donate a prize to the first non-committee member who emails tickets@cncs.org.uk with the correct location of all four after I announce they are in position!

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.
