All systems go

I can’t believe it’s nearly a month since I last posted here. It’s been such a busy time, getting everything ready for our end-of-season performances. Our weekend session to learn the extra music for BeVox@Magna was great fun, and I’m really excited about how it’s all coming together. I’ve just approved the drafts for the posters, which should be available in a week or so, and I was at Magna at the weekend recording an interview to promote the show. Ticket sales are growing steadily, and I had a really productive meeting with the sound and lighting designers. The band have agreed to play two live sets at the party afterwards, so we should be partying well into the night!

We’ve also been making great progress on our series of charity concerts. These run every night from Monday 18th to Thursday 21st July – Wakefield on Monday, Nottingham on Tuesday, Barnsley on Wednesday and Sheffield on Thursday. The line-up of other acts who are appearing is growing every day. The Nottingham event is now completely finalised – see the excellent poster (designed by a local designer who donated his time for free – thanks Marcus!) by clicking this link. We’re working on the other three and should have line-ups confirmed very soon.

I’ve got a series of meetings over the next week or so, discussing some really exciting events for the future. Nothing is confirmed yet, but plans are afoot for a fun large-scale event in September (hopefully partnering with some other choirs again), and a series of concerts and other performances as part of Sheffield’s Cultural Olympiad in March. Watch this space…
