Hi to all choirs who maybe out there who might be interested in my proposal. We are a SATB choir of approx 45 members based near Staffford in Staffordshire. We sing a wide range of music from Rutter, shows,folk songs etc, we love to sing and meet each week on Wednesday evening to reherse.Our ages range from 40's to !!s We have a very accomplished MD and pianist and sing from music We have met and sung with a choir each year during May for a joint concert. Sadly this year we have failed so far to find a choir who have either the date free or concert space available to accomodate a possible 80+ voices. All we ask is that the hosting choir arrange the venue and provide refreshments at the Saturday afternoon rehersal. We arrange coaching and hotel accomodation to the hosts town/city. We do not take any profits made from the tickets sold. Our aim is simply for our choir to spend a little time together, explore the attractions of the hosts area/town and enjoy the wonderful opportunity of coming together with another choir and singing songs together, We have a programme, so do the hosts and we have in the past submitted 1 joint item to sing together and ask the hosts to do the same for us. We would love to increase this to 2 each if possible. Our audience spoke highly of the lovely sound of 80 voices in joint harmony last year in Peterborough. As we are based in Staffordshire and are staying over a weekend we are hoping to find a choir outside the Staffordshire/West Midlands area, We have visited Peterborough, Chester, York, Scarborough, Lake District in recent years. The dates we are looking at are; Saturday May 11th or Saturday May 18th,this year, we travel to your venue on the Saturday afternoon for a joint rehersal approx 4.30, and then stay there until the concert approx 7/7-30. Our coach gets us there and back. Please get in touch if you are interested or would like more details
