This week we had a break for half term but we’re back this coming Monday and will be raring to go. We will be looking at a classic Take That song. Any guesses as to which one it may be? 🙂
Just completed our third and final carol performance at Hoghton Tower singing carols from the minstral gallery.
It was a full house of 110 plus Father Christmas this Sunday.
Merry Christmas to everyone, enjoy the break if you’re having one, and a Happy New Year. Choir will be back to rehearsals in January.
We had the pleasure of singing at The Hoghton Variety Show last Friday, to raise money for the next Hoghton Panto.
The village Hall was packed out with lots of friendly faces in attendance, to watch many talented acts. With a special guest appearance from Colin Kyani, musical theatre singer extraordinare, the evening went down a storm.
Having practiced processing from the back of the room, we decided to go with plan b on the night, due to the hall being so busy, which meant we entered from the side instead. All ran smoothly and the audience were very welcoming and friendly. It was lovely to perform to such a packed house.
Let’s hope lots of funds were raised. We’ll keep you posted.
We had a fabulous time, singing for St Leonard’s Church’s AGM last Thursday. This is was unusual concert in that our stage piano decided to go on strike just before the concert began. Luckily, our clever accompanist/tenor/all round good guy, David Whittingham, came to the rescue, on the organ! Do not fear, the stage piano is now fixed, thanks to Matt and John at The Music Cellar in Preston.
Singing to St Leonard’s wonderfully warm audience was a pleasure and notably we all thoroughly enjoyed our first performance of one of our newest pieces, Oceans and Stars.
We hope to return to St Leonard’s in the new year, for more singing fun.
Currently the choir is getting ready for a performance on 18th Oct, Thursday evening at St Leonard’s, Walton-le-Dale.
You’ll find it advertised on our Events Calendar see St Leonards AGM
and on the Friends of the church of St Leonard events see AGM FOCSL concert with Hoghton in Harmony
We will then be looking at a few new songs to add to our Christmas repertoire.
