NES Newsletter – 24 January, 2015
In this week’s Newsletter:
Please note that all practice tracks are now available in the member’s section of our NES website. There are also some very handy pronunciation guides to some of our pieces. So if you notice that some of your neighbours are singing in a practically flawless Italian accent, and they are not actually Italian, you can bet that they have been working with their practice tracks!
The position of Treasurer has become available in our committee. It is vital that we get this position filled to ensure the smooth running of the choir. Enid has done a wonderful job of getting all of our books in order and there is a lot of support to get you up and running. If you would like to help, please get in touch with a committee member ASAP.
Thank you to everyone who has put their name down to sing at the wedding at St. Andrew’s Church, Wraysbury on Saturday 18th April. There are still places available and if you are interested in joining us on this date, there will be a sign-up sheet at rehearsal on Monday.
The numbers we will be performing are:
Chapel of Love (from Sixties with a Twist)
Shoshone Love Song (from our busking books)
Moon River (from our Christmas concert)
O Happy Day Medley
We will also be joining the congregation with the hymns:
O Jesus I have promised
The names of everyone who participates will be entered into a draw with two choir members each winning £100 for a charity of their choice. Singers would be required from 12.30pm for a brief rehearsal to approximately 3pm, when the ceremony ends. If you need more information, please see Guy or Lisa Bunce at rehearsal on Monday.
We will be continuing our popular raffles, which raise much appreciated funds for our Social expenses. Upcoming dates this term are:
Your contributions, as always, are much appreciated.
Tour 2015: Save the Date
Our 2015 tour will be taking place from the 17 – 19 July. More details will be available very soon.
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, at rehearsal.
