Our summer season starts this week, and we’ve already had invitations to perform in several interesting places! After the success of our “Spontaneous Sing” events at the shopping centres, we’ve been invited to do more work with them, so look out for more concerts in the future – and even though it’s only April, we’re already making plans for how we can entertain Christmas shoppers…
We’re very pleased to be able to officially launch the BeVox @ Magna concert today – all the information is in our info pack, available from the “BeVox @ Magna” link on the right. This is going to be such an exciting event!
The blend of big events and sharing music with the community will continue throughout the Summer season. We’ve been invited to sing at a Charity Fun Day at The Cadlands Pub in Chilwell, Nottingham, and all of the retirement and care homes we performed in at the end of the Spring season have invited us back. We’re also looking for performance opportunities in Wakefield and Barnsley, as they are currently under-represented, so please email us your ideas.
We’re very pleased to announce the details for our newest group, based in Barnsley. Our taster session for this group is on Wednesday 27th April, from 7pm until 9pm, at Staincross Methodist Church, Blacker Road, Mapplewell, Barnsley S75 6BP. We then start our regularly weekly sessions on Wednesday 11th May (a fortnight after the taster). If you are interested in joining us in Barnsley, or in any of our other groups, please get in touch using the “Contact us” link on the right, and we’ll see you soon.
Our Wakefield group is moving. We’ve been very well looked after at St Andrew’s Church, and we hope to continue running weekend workshops there and supporting their work in the community. From the Summer season, we’ll be meeting at Sandal Methodist Church instead, which is at 253 Barnsley Road, Wakefield WF1 5NU. Please spread the word and get your friends, family and colleagues to come and join us – everyone’s welcome!
What a week it has been! After three superb Season Finales, in which we sang to over 300 people over three nights, we then had three very successful free lunchtime concerts at Sheffield Winter Gardens – and today, three amazing “Spontaneous Sing” performances in three different shopping centres! The performances at Sheffield Winter Gardens enabled us to start our charity fund-raising efforts, and we collected over £220 for the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal. The “Spontaneous Sings” were an absolute blast, and we entertained hundreds of shoppers. Videos are already hitting YouTube, and I’ll try to keep up with posting them on our “Photos/videos” page (check out the link on the right). We’ve been invited back to do more of these events in the future, so watch out – you never know when we might start singing to you!!!
