Fundraising for Ukraine

We have been busy raising funds for Ukraine and we are pleased to announce that we raised £826.25 from our recent “Grease Sing-a-long” and £637.50 from donations from the Choir. A grand total of £1463.75 !!

A massive thank you to all choir members, friends and families and to those who joined us for our “Grease sing-a-long” for their generosity.

One day more!….

…. to singing again!

Just to confirm we are meeting tomorrow Monday 7th Feb at Marldon Parish Church at 7.30pm.

Please bring a face covering to wear whilst moving around, they can be removed once seated and as usual we will be spacing the chairs so we are socially distanced.

Also please bring any music you may have at home, as new music will be distributed for the Summer term.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Good news! Singing starting soon!

We are going to start back singing on Monday 7th Feb and will start working towards a summer concert rehearsing through to Monday 11th April without a half-term break.

Our summer concert with be on Saturday 2nd July at St John’s Church, Totnes

And there are some social events coming up to put in the calendar:

Saturday 9th April – Sing along Grease

Saturday 10th September – Last night of the Proms with a live link to the Royal Albert Hall.

UPDATE!

Oh dear, I’m sorry to say that we are going to postpone the start of choir rehearsals and will not be meeting next Monday 10th Jan as originally planned.

This is because of high levels of Covid locally. Several members have expressed concern about this and the Choir Committee made this decision yesterday.

Please watch this website for further information. Hopefully we will resume in a couple of weeks, but will let everyone know in good time.

Rehearsals starting again

We are starting back next Monday, 10th January at 7.30pm in Marldon Village hall.

We will be staying safe and asking that masks be worn when walking around but they can be removed when seated, so please make sure you bring one with you, (we will have some available if you forget), and we will be continuing to maintain social distancing between chairs.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and to be singing again!

UPDATE

Regretfully the Choir will not be singing at Occombe Farm on Thursday 16th December as planned due to the rapid rise of COVID and the need to protect our choir members. We are all really sorry not to be joining in the Christmas festivities at Occombe and wish everyone a very Happy and Safe Christmas
