NES Newsletter – 22 November, 2014
In this week’s Newsletter:
Christmas Concert Tickets
Tickets will not be on sale on Monday evening 24th November but are still available by either calling or emailing the box office (details on the poster).
Tickets will be on sale at our rehearsal on Monday evening 1st December.
There are still plenty of tickets, so please remember to invite your friends and family!
Please remember that to provide a slick, professional appearance, we need to be coordinated and consistent in our concert attire. This means black trousers and white shirts for men, with “NES blue” ties. For ladies, the look is a white, long sleeved, collared blouse and black trousers or skirt. Ladies in the front row need to have either trousers or a floor length skirt.
Christmas Concert Rehearsal
There will be a full rehearsal for our Christmas Concert on Wednesday, 3rd December at 7.30 in St. Johns Church, Egham.
Carols at Birchlands and Sunrise Centre
We have been invited back to sing at Sunrise Centre in Virginia Water on Wednesday, 10th December from 6:30 to 7:30, and at Birchlands Care Home in Englefield Green on Monday 15th December 6.30 – 7.30. Please consider singing at these events if you can, as they are very much appreciated at the centres. Sign up on the choir register sheet.
Scratch Messiah, Sunday 30th November, 7pm, Royal Albert Hall
There is still a spare Soprano ticket for this event. If anybody is interested, please email Fran
It’s going to be such fun! Remember that you can check the website for the updated guest list and table numbers
Egham Choral Christmas Concert
Egham Choral will be performing their Christmas concert on Saturday 13th December at St Paul's Church Egham Hythe TW18 3HJ commencing at 7.30. They are our “Sister Choir,” so it would be great to support them. And if you care to do some front of house, you can even see them for free! Please see Robert Couper if you are interested in helping out. A poster promoting this event is attached.
A Note from Sam about our Music
Hi everyone; the end of term and the Christmas concert are approaching very quickly. I would like to let you know about a new method for collecting this term’s music.
FOR THOSE NOT TAKING PART IN THE CONCERT
Your music will be collected at the end of the last choir practice. There will be two red boxes by the door, so please just drop your music in as you leave (but not carol book and classic hits).
FOR THOSE IN THE CONCERT
At the end of the concert--whilst you are still sitting and just before we leave the stage, please take your music out of your folders. There will be several red boxes at each side of the stage. Please just drop you music in one of the boxes (again not the carol or classic hits book).
Many thanks for cooperating in this as it will reduce loss to the choir and make my job much easier.
NES is always on the lookout for new charities to support. We prefer our charities to be local to our community. This includes the community that you as a member live in – not just Egham and Staines. And they must be non-denominational and non-political. If you have a charity that you would like put forward for consideration, please contact our chairman, David Evans, either at rehearsal or at email@example.com
We are implementing a new process to hopefully make our newsletters even more wonderful and error-free. To this end, it is more important than ever that copy reaches the secretary no later than Wednesday evening. To submit an item to the NES weekly newsletter, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your article no later than Wednesday evening. Please include a contact e-mail address which can be included in your posting. If you would like your item repeated, please let the secretary know on a weekly basis. Only items directly related to EDCS can be published. Other notices can be posted on our notice board which is displayed every week at rehearsal.
