What a weekend we had. Such fun, a wonderful trip and we did ourselves proud - definitely an audience favourite as we were different to most of the other choirs and lots of fun - we were even mentioned on Twitter in the same post as Theresa May!
Not only was it the Choir Festival but we also caught the start of the Derry Halloween celebrations - wow. Derry is a wonderful city and we'd definitely like to go back.

Our Christmas preparations will start at our next full rehearsal on Thursday 1 November. If you are interested in joining us for our Christmas sing outs then please come along to rehearsals (first week is free) and we'll be starting our new Christmas song Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.
Remember 7.15 at Watcombe Primary on Moor Lane , Torquay.

Well it certainly seemed like it yesterday! We had a wonderful afternoon at the Torbay Ageing Well Festival 2018 where we ran a workshop to demonstrate that "everyone can sing" and we performed two sets in the marquee which were well appreciated by our audience (who also joined us on stage for Super Trouper). In fact, one audience member wrote "You were so incredible, so in harmony, and really brought out the feeling in every song. Thank you for singing for us today and I will certainly look out for you again." Fantastic.

We are really excited to be visiting Northern Ireland from 26 - 29 October to take part in the City of Derry International Choir Festival.
The festival is billed as being "Created as a joyous celebration of choral music-making, the festival provides opportunities for competitive and non-competitive participation for singers across a wide range of styles, ensembles and ages." There are some really great choirs taking part so not only are we looking forward to sharing our sound but we can't wait to hear other choirs too.
A few weeks ago we were joined for a day of coaching and fine tuning by the wonderful Tracey Bailey of Acapella Sound in Cornwall so we hope we can put all of her tips to good use in Ireland.
Whether or not we are placed in any competition, we are looking forward to spending the weekend together in a fantastic city and no doubt there will be much impromptu singing over a pint of Guinness!

We've been quiet for a while but after a few months of planning we are raring to go again.
Our first performance for be at the Ageing Well Festival 2018 which takes place on Saturday 20 October. We are really excited to be running a workshop for any keen singers out there and then we will be performing two sets and will be joined by our workshop attendees to perform with us.
It's going to be great fun and is 70s themed too!
