We were lucky enough to be invited back to sing at the Sunflower Cafe recently.
It’s a monthly gatherings where people with dementia and their friends can meet for afternoon tea in the company of others in a similar situation.
Our songbook of old favourites once again proved very popular and we hope to return soon.
Thanks to Tanya Murphy and Monireh Jassat for the photos.
After a short Easter break, rehearsals resume on On Wednesday 19th April at 7.30pm. See you then.
Over 60 people crammed into the St Margaret’s Church Hall in Putney on Wednesday 29 March for a singalong of Andrew Lloyd Webber songs, led by our musical director Carl Speck. Particular highlights were Memory from Cats, and Don’t Cry for me Argentina from Evita.
The evening, one of a series of community events, was free to attend and enjoyed by all. With many new faces, we’d be thrilled to see some new regular members and would particularly like a few more men to come along.
For the last two years the choir has supported Re-generate Rise with fundraising activities and also regularly performs at dementia cafés where the repertoire focuses on songs that everyone will know and can join in.
Our first rehearsal of 2017 starts 8pm tonight, Wednesday 11th January.
New members are always welcome – so if your New Year’s resolution was to join a choir or meet new people or simply have more fun, we hope we’ll see you there.
Huge thanks to everyone that came to our Christmas concert at St Mary’s in Putney on Saturday night – we hope you left full of festive cheer.
We’re taking a Christmas break ourselves, the next rehearsal will be on Wednesday 11th January 2017 at the slightly later than usual time of 8pm.
