Last Night of the Proms is CANCELLED


See you all on Monday 26th of April.


Correction: The LNotP is for the JHQ Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Download pdf files (from the music page) of the music with words added under the notes for the extra verses.


I have informed Joanna Dunlop that we will be singing for the LNotP.
History pages updated.
AGM and Social on the 26th of April - we need to elect a new Chairman and other officials!


The consensus of members is that we should sing at the Last Night of the Proms. I will speak with Joanna Dunlop and organise music etc. This would be a good opportunity to enlist new members - particularly sopranos.


The Last Night of the Proms concert will be in the evening.


The Choral Society has been asked to take part in the JHQ show. It would be excellent publicity for us. I will be asking members if they can participate, and would hope that we could.
This is the info that I have so far:
"The 3rd July is the JHQ Golden Jubilee music festival here in JHQ. The musical event is based around a large covered stage and the music will be supplied by different bands, from the MG orchestra, Military bands to May Queen and music from the 60's, 70's ,80's and 90's. The finale will be two military bands performing the Last Night of the Proms style music with fireworks in the background. The question is would the choral society like to provide the vocal lead for The Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem etc."


Vic has had to resign as chairman due to work commitments.
If you would like to undertake this challenging, yet rewarding post (or know someone who would be perfect for it) please contact Helen Ross.
In the same vein - the Choral Society urgently requires a Rehearsal Pianist. Please forward any names to Ray Ross.

Do you have any news you think would be of interest to Choral Society members?
If so, either pass it on to one of the members listed on the contacts page, or email it to me.
