January 2016

SingWiv on Saturday 16th January broke our record for numbers. It was lovely to see such a full room. Thank you all for making the effort and for spreading the word about our regular Saturday Sings.

We made a great noise - although we were a little hesitant when it came to the recordings but as Chris says, this is not supposed to be our best attempt.

The link to the recordings is below and I hope you enjoy listening to them. The Marvin Gaye song, "You're all I need to get by", is one of my favourites from my youth,  but I never expected to be singing it in three part unaccompanied harmony - well done all, and well done Chris!

January recordings

Chris has also added a couple of YouTube clips for your enjoyment, of "Minuit" - an African one and the link below, which is for Paul Winter's version - beautifully gentle. I love it.

Our next session is on Saturday 20th February, when we look forward to seeing you all again.

Welcome back and Happy New Year

Happy New Year All.

Hopefully you all had a a pleasant festive season and are ready to get back to your regular monthly singing sessions.

Our next SingWiv session is this coming Saturday (that's 16th January ), as usual in the the Scout Hall off the High Street in Wivenhoe.  Please arrive at about 1.45 for a prompt 2.00 start. The diversion around the entrance to Wivenhoe is still in place and the buses are now also diverted, so they are also using Keelers Lane (at least they were this week - it seems to keep changing!)

This Saturday also sees the start of Chris's regular morning sessions in Copdock. Obviously we want you to keep coming top SingWiv - without decent numbers we will not be able to continue. However, should you find yourself unable to attend our afternoon session, you now have another option.

Please tell any friends you have who live a little closer to Ipswich - maybe we can bump up the numbers for both sessions.

We are really looking forward to singing again - the rotten weather recently might have dampened our spirits a bit, so a good sing - maybe with a song from warmer climes - will be just the ticket.

Looking forward to seeing you all (and your friends) on Saturday.
