6 January 2014:
NEW MEMBERS: A membership waiting list is currently in operation for soprano and alto voices, but we are actively seeking both basses and tenors to join us now. At present waiting time is likely to be several months for sopranos and altos, but if you are interested please get in touch and we can let you know the current position. There is a contact form on the Join page.
Here is the flyer/poster for our next concert – feel free to email this to friends, family and colleagues, or to print and distribute.
It’s a .pdf format file (needs Adobe Reader, available free from https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/). Just CLICK on the image on the left and the pdf file should display in your browser – then use the controls to save or print the poster.
[If you right-click on the image you can save a .jpg version instead of the .pdf version]
Thanks once again to Hazel Macmillan for another amazing design.
For anyone wanting to buy tickets for our concert on 29 March (Gounod and Haydn) online, the link is:http://www.wegottickets.com/event/262990 (full price)
or http://www.wegottickets.com/event/262991 (concessions). Choir members please note there is a booking fee charged by WeGotTickets so it’s slightly cheaper to buy tickets at rehearsals.
ICS Members, please note that there will be a ‘half-term’ break in rehearsals on Tuesday 18 February 2014 – no rehearsal on that evening.
We have also agreed to change the ‘half-term’ date for the Summer term from the late May Bank Holiday week to the early May Bank Holiday week – ie Tuesday 6 May – no rehearsal. The reason is that so many of us will either have just returned from Perugia on our concert tour to Italy (ends 5 May), or in some cases will be remaining in Italy for the rest of the week.
Please note your diaries!
Those going on our concert tour to Perugia on 2-5 May this year (and those still thinking about it) might be interested in visiting http://icsontour.wordpress.com/. As if the world didn’t have enough blogs already, we have decided to post a miscellany of facts, fiction, images, hints, guides, travellers tips, restaurant recommendations, travel tips and other detritus of highly variable value in a new blog just for the trip.
Please note this will not be the official information source about the tour, which will remain the Tour page on this website.
The blog is planned to offer insights into the city of Perugia, the region of Umbria, and Italy in general.
Please feel free to ad to the blog with comments of your own (especially if you know anything about Perugia).
Up to date details for our Concert Tour to Perugia, Italy on 2-5 May 2014, are on this site – click on the ‘Tour’ link at the top of any page, or go here.
Welcome to the new term and two new works to rehearse.
If you’re singing with us this term, you will find links to several useful practice tracks and websites (some free) on the new ‘Practice‘ page (on the menu bar at the top of the page, or just click here) – so you can practise at home and get on top of the notes as quickly as possible!
