Choir Practice!

  • Nov 20, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Note: this is the last chance to join us to sing this year. We have less than a month to learn a special arrangement of 'Woody Allen Jesus' by Tim Minchin - he's very interested to hear the final result. To get an idea of the song see (just imagine it in multipart harmony):

Important: Run Up to December Performances
The next four practices will be very focused on getting one song polished to sing on a west end stage on the evenings of 16th and 22nd of December. If you are not an able singer, cannot manage 16th and 22nd December or cannot attend at least 4 of the practices, then the start of 2013 would be a better time to join us, as things will then be more relaxed. For now, we need people to working hard for these performances.

Please be prompt. We promise it'll be fun.

Fees
We are non-profit making but we need to cover our costs, so ask for a £5.00 donation at each rehearsal. You can pay by cash on the night, or if you'd prefer, we offer a 10 percent discount for paying in advance by direct debit. Talk to Stells our Treasurer if you have any queries or problems.

Logistics
It would be helpful if you could bring a black folder and a pencil. If you are able to print out new material prior to a practice we would appreciate that, as we may only have limited copies of new material available.

      I'm not sure what files Apple plays. These are midi files which definitely play through Windows Media Player. I'll research which files are compatible.

      We have converted the files to mp3s and they are now uploaded here: http://bhachoir.human...­

    Any news on the mp3's being uploaded with the song parts please? Would really like to put some work in before next Tuesday's rehearsal.

      Ha ha! Sadly no, they were rather tasteless, but the bread rolls were nice! See you Tuesday.

      No problems. Any other questions let us know.

    Hi,
    when exactly is your next gig? Since I'll be away the last 10 days of December, if I won't be able to make it I will wait for January before joining the choir.

    Thanks,
    Nico

    This rehearsal will be the last chance to join us to sing for this year. You can still join us if you feel you can learn quite a complicated song in four weeks. We're especially keen for Bass singers to join us.

  • Samantha 'Fluffy' Frances L.

    Are you taking new members? :)

    November 15, 2012

    • Stew D.

      Yes, although it'll help if you're a fast learner! Next Tuesday is the last chance to join us now if you want to sing with us at the concert. The next point will be when we start in January when we fling the doors open to everyone who couldn't commit to the rehearsals for our current gig.
