Please check the latest rehearsal schedule as two of the carols have been removed from the running order.

 

Plans afoot to sing at some Retirement Homes on the 5 December, before the rehearsal.  Ask a Committee Member if you are interested.

 

Please remember to bring finger food, not just mince pies for after the Carol Concert on 12 December.

 

We are meeting up on Thursday, 19 December for Carols and (more) mince pies at Howey Village Hall, ususal time; hope you can make it - a chance for us all to wish each other seasons best!

 

NEW YEAR alert! - Details to follow but there will be a Dinner at the Herb Garden some time in January, 2020 so watch this space and your emails for further information.

 

AGM NEWS

The AGM held on Thursday, 24 October resulted in:

The re-election of all the previous Committee Members apart from Jill Clay who has decided to step down as Secretary and from the Committee.  Many thanks to Jill for all her hard work on behalf of Cantorion and a big welcome to one of our newest members, Sue Ryan, who is taking over the role.  Sue can be contacted at: secretary@cantorion-llandrindod.org   

 

PUBLICITY - we need a TEAM­

There were no volunteers for Publicity Officer but as this is such a key role in helping ensure that we have the audiences we desire our Chair, Martha, will be considering options!.. and approaching members directly.

 

This is the sort of role that could easily be shared amongst a Team - not all of whom need be Committee Members - but who can breakdown the work in to manageable chunks.  SO PLEASE, if you think you could help in any way eg designing posters or programmes, writing pieces for the local paper, setting up distribution lists for posters and flyers or helping ensure that those posters are prominent in the local area then please contact Martha or Sue. 

 

Does anyone Tweet or use Facebook?  Would you be willing to spread the word about Cantorion and its music throughout the year?  We just need someone (or two) to use social media to give their thoughts on how rehearsals are going and what we are planning etc - not just ticket and concert info.  If you think you fit the bill, please get in touch at chair@cantorion-llandrindod.org

 

Rehearsals ....

are well underway, and we are now focusing on the Carols we are to sing in December.  There are some links and information on the Practoce Aids page and the web is a great source for performance videos, so spend a little time and explore!

 ­

If you have missed a rehearsal please take the opportunity to check out what you missed so that you are prepared for our next rehearsal. 

 

And don't forget that there are Practice Aids available for the Carols and for the March Concert music (links below) which really do help as individuals for the bits we are struggling with and for the whole choir in speeding up our learning allowing our Conductor more time to finesse our performance.

 

The two pieces for the Spring Concert in March 2020:

 

  • Faure's Requiem - score OUP, editor Rutter; copies available for hire to members at £3 or to buy at £7
  • Schubert's Mass in G - score Novello; available to members at no charge

Links to performances and Aids to learning are available so please visit Practice Aids
