HAG Rocks!

Choir Restarting Monday 17th May

Posted on 8th May 2021

Our intention is to work on a collection of past songs to sing at the HAG charity night to celebrate the life of Lesley Parish on Friday 23rd of July. I will put the likely song list (songs that Lesley particularly liked) at the end.

Because of the number restrictions before the 21st June we need to find out how many choir members would be willing & able to attend these rehearsals before working out how to divide you up into 2 groups. One lot (group A) would come on 17th May & 7th June, the other (group B) on 24th May & 14th June. No rehearsal on Bank Holiday Monday 31st May. We should then have 5 rehearsals for both groups after that.

You need to consider the following:
Are you able to & if so would you like to sing on Friday 23rd July?
Do you know most of the songs reasonably well?
Can you come to most rehearsals?

Later on, provided we definitely can proceed with singing rehearsals, which will be subject to appropriate distancing & regulations, then we will divide you into the 2 groups & let you know which nights to come.

Probable song list:
California Dreamin’, Mamma Mia, Les Miserables Medley, The Rose, Viva la Vida, Don’t Stop Me now, Mr Blue Sky,

The informal Holiday at Home lunch concert that we do every summer will be held on Friday 20th August if you want to put a date in your diary.

We will be restarting choir with new music to learn in September, when there shouldn’t be any restrictions, & all being well, we will all be fully vaccinated. This will be working towards the Christmas show in December.
