Let the Christmas singouts begin!
By Marcia Milsom, Bass Section Leader and Barbs Chair
So Christmas has started early again for us, with a double sing-out weekend. What a way to get us all in the festive spirit!
On Saturday we performed at the South Hill Park Christmas Fair. What a fabulous venue, we love coming here. Not only to sing but to start our Christmas shopping! With our lovely Emma out of action, a few of us stepped in to help out with the conducting, now that’s a learning curve! Singing festive tunes including Jingle Bells, Oh Holy Night and Feliz Navidad, hopefully we managed to spread some festive cheer.
Then on Sunday we braved the arctic temperatures at the Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre, the first time we’d sung at this event. It was a lovely setting with Christmas stalls and although it’s always difficult singing outside, Emma was back at the helm and we managed to draw a crowd to listen to us. We also performed our new Christmas song White Winter Hymnal for the first time – we love a new song!
Looking forward to our next singout (thankfully in the warm) and spreading lots of Christmas cheer. Come and have a listen for yourself at one of our planned singouts and have a listen for yourselves – just have a look at our Upcoming Events list.
