)Whew, it's some going, having to write 12 days of [hopefully...] entertaining blogs which are interesting enough for you to have learnt something about our Choir...!
With Day 9 today of our 12 Blogs of New Year, we are three-quarters of the way through our series, so what better idea then, than to have a bit of a Catch-Up??? Yes, folks, it's Day 9 Revision Time!!!
Everybody in, then! You know what happens by now - we sing about the ninth day to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas and incorporate all the days we have had so far. So, here goes! a-1, 2, 3:
"In the 9th Blog of New Year, 'The Phoenix' gave to me: Nine Days' Revision, It's a 'Made Up' Man Thing, Serene Swans a-Swimming, See Geezers Playing - Five Sing-ing Live - For Auld Lang Syne, Three Hearty Cheers, To All Men an Invite and A Calendar with Dates we can see!"
Phew - tired just thinking about it! But we have covered some really good ground in our previous 8 blogs... ...and if you click on the links, you get some more information!!! (www.norwichphoenixmvc.org/blog)
On Day 1: A Calendar - Brand new for New Year and our 10th Anniversary Year 2020, you can now find all our events, all in one place, on our Website Home Page Calendar (http://www.NorwichPhoenixMVC.org)
On Day 2: An Invitation - At the start of our new Singing Season, we open our rehearsal doors to non-members and invite all Men to call into our home base at Mile Cross for 7.30pm each Thursday in January and come to our Open Rehearsals! Have a free look around behind the scenes at how we do things - No Charge, No Audition, No Obligation (www.norwichphoenixmvc.org/singwithus.html)
On Day 3: 3 Cheers for the Past 10 Years! - A brief review of our Founding Moments and who we have to thank 10 years later! (www.norwichphoenixmvc.org/wearephoenix.html)
On Day 4: For Auld Lang Syne... - A look back at our membership over the years and why it is important to be a welcome home to new members... (pmvc_open_reh_10th_anniv_year.jpg)
On Day 5: Five Singing Live! - not just the fact that all of our members can sing in all of our concerts, but that within our membership, there is a broad spectrum of different types of singer with different reasons for wanting to sing with us, and all are equally welcomed within our ranks!!!

On Day 6: Can You Hear Our Geezers Sing??? - Of course you can, and we show you how! (www.norwichphoenixmvc.org/concerts2020.html)
On Day 7: Are Established Members 'Swanning It'? - They may look like it, but what's happening below the 'waterline'? New members, or men thinking about joining us should not be put off...! This is what we do to help you find your feet (or give you webbed feet!!!) (img_20171021_102107.jpg)
On Day 8: Being Made Up! - ...with our fabulous audiences! (thank_you.png)
There! All set up for Day 10 and just two days from our second January 2020 Open Rehearsal!!!
(t)Witterings from the Choir's Webmaster, The Phoenix, but it's normally about what we are going to be or have been up to, something nice about someone we have sung with, or a gracious reply to one of your own wonderful comments.
