It’s been a great week at BeVox. Despite the change of venue for Nottingham again, we still had plenty of people there (including a few new faces – welcome!). I know people have enjoyed the sound at the Methodist Church, but the parking is a real problem – we’re still looking at solutions. We are back to our usual home at The Becket School next week.
After some more new sign-ups and great attendance, I’m happy to say that this week has seen the most singers at sessions that we’ve ever seen – over 220 across the four groups. We’re thrilled that Barnsley is continuing to grow, and the sound in each group is getting better and better. “Shona malanga” is rapidly becoming a favourite, I think!
I’ve been trying to get all my loose ends tied up this week, as I’m in London from Friday to Sunday working on another project. I was at Sheffield City Hall yesterday, making plans for Alight, then I had a lovely email from David Grant, who is looking forward to working with everyone who is coming to our Summer Singing Retreat. I’m just booking another site visit to Buxton to prepare for our Charity Gala Concert on 8th December – it’s shaping up to be a busy and exciting year!
We will be at West Bridgford Methodist Church again next week for our Nottingham session – that’s the one on Tuesday 24th January. Should be back to The Becket School the following week, 31st January. Apologies for these continued issues with the venue – we are working to prevent further problems in the future.
Just a quick reminder that we’re at West Bridgford Methodist Church this week in Nottingham, not The Becket School!
It’s been a great start to the Spring season. Our first sessions in Sheffield, Wakefield and Nottingham have been great fun, and it’s lovely to see new recruits in each area. We’re looking forward to Barnsley’s first session of 2012 tonight.
Next week, our Nottingham session will temporarily move to a different venue. The Becket School isn’t available, so instead we will be at West Bridgford Methodist Church, on the junction of Musters Road and Patrick Road – the post code there is NG2 7PQ, and there’s a map here. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare, as it’s on-street only, and it gets quite busy – you may need to park a distance away and then walk down. Please accept our apologies for this temporary change of venue.
Welcome to 2012, and may we wish you a Happy New Year!
We’re looking forward to a great year of singing. We’ve just received an invitation to be the guest artistes at Bestwood Male Voice Choir’s annual concert in September, at Nottingham’s Albert Hall. We’re also working with a PR agency in Sheffield to create a special event for House of Fraser, and we start our new season in just a few days. I’ve collected the finished music tracks from the studio today, which will go to be duplicated tomorrow – I’m really excited to hear the music we’ll be working on. Roll on Thursday when it all starts again!
