We wound up the year in traditional style - on12th December we performed at All Saints Church Babbacombe Christmas Carol Concert. We sang Silent Night, Gaudete, the Coventry Carol, and finished with a roof-raising version of Hark the Herald Angels Sing. 

Just two weeks before the concert we were joined by Kea's mum Fiona, who was a member of the chorus in earlier days. She provided much needed support, helping to balance the four sections.



June 1st

Unfortunately we had to cancel tonight's rehearsal - several poorly peeps, including Chris. Hope to be back next week.


April 27th

Although we're quite reduced in numbers, we're still having a great crack at these songs. With Helen and Mirela both over their colds, and Denise back on her feet after her accident, plus Kea who can sing any harmony, we have all the sections in action. 

And it's really nice to be able to be so informal, to chat, to all be together in a way that wasn't always possible when we were a much larger group.


March 9th

We've learned a 'Tag'. This is a couple of lines from a song, and singing them is a long tradition in Barber Shop singing - they even have Tag competitions. Being short it's very quick to learn them - which has to be good, right?

February 23rd

Back to school! We cracked on with the Olly Murs song, starting to really get it. (It helps to have a listen to it on YouTube - you can really get the rhythm.) 


February 16th

We met at Chris's (sorry if you came to the school and found it closed, I'd forgotten to post a reminder on Twitter etc.) We made a good start on our new song, Dance With Me Tonight - Olly Murs. With the dogs singing along! It's a great song, got a cool rhythm.  

Next week we're back at the school. 


February 9th

Welcome back Helen - she's been to Tasmania. It was a bit of a shock to the system coming back to the freezing cold UK. Speaking of cold, as next week is half-term and the heating won't be on in the school we've decided to meet at Chris's instead. Get in touch if you need details.


January 19th

Another nice informal evening, but we got stuck into some songs - In My Room, Feel My Love and Best Day of My Life. Even though there were only a few of us, we sounded pretty good. We also chose a couple of new - classic - ones to work on: What'll I Do by Irving Berlin and Breaking Up Is Hard To Do by Neil Sedaka.  


January 12th

First rehearsal after the Christmas break. Unfortunately several people are still poorly, and we wish them a speedy recovery. But we had a visit from one of our original members, Fiona - she was a lead, back in the day. 

So we sang some songs and ate some cake, and had a nice time.
