So, that is that! The last chair is put away, order has been restored at our very accommodating host 'home base' Church for the following morning's service, and the last 'Goodnight! Merry Christmas!' has been wished to our audience as they safely make their way home after our last 'gig' of the year.
But what a night... ...and what an Audience! Just an hour before 'doors opened', the foulest breeze-fuelled clouds decided to deliver a rain shower of force, which not only made setting-up pretty uncomfortable, but invited thoughts as to whether our hoped-for audience would be deterred...
...and how wrong we were! Our best-ever attendance had arrived outside, as patient as the rotten, but improving, weather would allow! That's why our message is even more heartfelt than usual, because without our fabulous audiences, we don't really have a real purpose as a Choir to entertain and to support the traditions of male choral singing.
So 'Thank You!', a hundred, thousand, million times - whatever is appropriate - as we wish you all the warmest of Seasonal Greetings and hopes for the best of what the New Year brings!
On which note (with apologies for the pun), whatever you hope for yourself in 2019, have a look at our Open Rehearsal Dates and think about 'having a sing on us', Gents! Otherwise, Lady or Gent, if you prefer to let us do the singing, do look at our 2019 Programme and be welcomed to one of our singing events.
After all, in 2019, we're 'hoping' to see you there!
