We still can't say a big enough 'thank you' to anyone in Beccles who volunteered to sell tickets and display posters for our Summer Evenings of Song concert next Saturday 28th July at St Michael’s Church, starting at 7.30pm. We have agreed to benefit Asperger East Anglia that evening and advance tickets for our Beccles concert (£7.50) are available from the two Asperger East Anglia shops in Beccles: the A Shop, 1A Market Street, Beccles NR34 9AQ, and the Discount Shop, 12 Blyburgate, Beccles NR34 9TB. There will also be 'at the door' admission (£7.50) from 7.00pm when the doors open. Our concert raffle proceeds on the 28th will all go to support AEA, our chosen cause. We are looking forward to our concert with you in Beccles, so we hope that you get your concert ticket soon, and join our audience on the night!
We do not, by custom, publish our major concert programme content in advance, but in response to a heaving postbag imploring us to do so (my goodness, Pinocchio would be SOOO proud!!!), here is some of what we have in store for you (in no particular order):
A train; another train; something old; something new; something borrowed; something blue; something Welsh; something definitely Welsh; something that sounds Welsh, but isn’t; something musical; another thing musical; a third thing musical it’s nothing like; 3 of US; and lots more! There! So now you know! Miss it, and miss out!!!
But you don’t need to wait for our Beccles visit… …we’re at our rehearsal home in Norwich at Mile Cross Methodist Church this very evening and there’s plenty of parking at and around the venue! See you then?
The 52 years of hurt predates us slightly (by about 6 1/2 times...!). But not competing for an audience with several world-class sports events is always wise, especially this year, since a certain nationality's football team hasn't come closer since 1990 to putting some silverware (well, goldware in this case) into the nation's trophy cabinet.
We used to say the same (but for a much longer time...) about a British Men's Champion at Wimbledon, then the same one came along twice at once ... [ I think I've written that properly about Andy Murray ...???! ] and Kyle Edmond had a good go today without disgrace at a multiple Grand-Slammer, not forgetting a Davis Cup win for GB a little while ago. That one put to bed then, with some well-placed future optimism!
So with 52 years of hurt to resolve, after a great win today, we wish good luck for Wednesday evening to Gareth Southgate and the whole England Football Team.... ....and you never know, for the following Sunday too...???!!!
Because one thing's for sure ... ... it's coming home!!!
Norwich's Phoenix Male Voice Choir is coming home to its Mile Cross Methodist Church rehearsal base on Saturday 21st July for its Summer Evenings of Song Concert and we hope to see you there (or the following Saturday at St Michael's Church, Beccles), when we all hope there may be more than just an evening of song to celebrate and enjoy!
