Dear choir members.
I am very pleased to welcome several new members this term, including Graham Branton (tenor), and 3 new basses: Tom Wilson; Nick Miles and Mick Venables. This is great news, especially as we lost a strong bass Michael Bloom after our Christmas concert. Michael is moving away from Lewes very soon and we are sorry to lose him and also Nicola Bloom who sang with us in the Sopranos.
Plans are firming up for our trip to Leamington Spa and Coventry Cathedral 23-25 June.
And we are making good progress towards our concert in Lewes Town Hall on 29 April. We are enjoying singing Haydn: Missa Sancti Nicolai as well as getting to grips with Handel: O praise the Lord. This concert will be accompanied by a small Baroque orchestra – 5 string players, 2 oboes, 2 horns, bassoon and chamber organ. Confirmed soloists so far are Alex Kidgell (soprano) and Andrew Davies (bass).
Keep up the good work and we’ll give a great concert!
