Last Thursday saw us return to Wellingborough Pre-Prep School’s hall for our first rehearsal for the Christmas Concert. An early start, to enable us to pick up the new music and to meet and chat with our chorister friends old and new, following the Summer break, got us off to a good start.
Our DoM, Lee, was typically interesting and amusing with his anecdotes and a bit of musical history, as we began to find our way into the Hayden “Missa Sancti Nicolai” and Rutter’s “All Bells in Paradise”, both promising to enable us to build on last Easter’s successful and exciting concert.
It was great to see welcome new members who, I am sure, will enjoy the experience, both musical and social, that being a member of the Wellingborough Singers provides.
If you are reading this, and not yet a member, why not come along on Thursday evening and see what it’s like? There is no audition, and most of us do not “read” music, so it’s great for everyone.
