I hope you’ve all had a relaxing summer and are now looking forward to getting down to work on our exciting programme of three major concerts and a Christmas one over the coming season. First rehearsal September 25th. Planning group meeting the week before so do contact your reps or one of the group's members if you have any issues you would like to have raised at that meeting.
A reminder of further dates.
November 18, A Trio of Magnificats in King’s Hall, 7.30.
November 20, AGM and first rehearsal for Christmas concert which will include some choruses from Messiah.
December 15, Christmas Concert, 7pm.
February 24, Messiah, Sage Gateshead
May 31-June 4 visit from Gelsenkirchen choir for joint concert on June 3, 3pm Sage. (To be confirmed.)
We also hope to organise a further voice coaching workshop or two, dates TBC.
And now for the regular plea.
There has been no response at all to the many regular requests for someone to take on the management of publicity for the choir.
At the very least we urgently need someone to look after the fliers and/or programmes for the November concert. Once the fliers are designed they can be printed as well
as used by our social media and websites managers to promote the concert. Ideally there is much more that needs doing (contacting the media, targeting other musical organisations, monitoring the location of posters, etc) but the fliers and programmes are the priority.
