‘Big Sing’ concert at Merchant Taylors (October 2017) and ‘Alice Christmas Concert’ at St George’s Hall (December 2017)
On Wed 11th July, instead of meeting at Moor Lane Methodist, for those who want to, we are taking part in The Greatest Story Every Told (GSET) at St George’s Hall in Liverpool. We will be joining with other choirs to be part of 3 scenes and singing: Freedom, He reigns, and Oh holy night. Simple costumes will be provided, no previous acting experience necessary! You are welcome to come along and watch if you prefer not to sing – it’s a fantastic show – why not bring a friend? There is a trailer and photos on the website, where you can also book tickets.
The performance starts at 7pm and lasts for 2 hours plus a 20min interval. We will get to rehearse our parts beforehand, so you will need to be there by 6pm is possible (time tbc). Please wear plain, neutral (or Biblical!) coloured clothes and shoes.
COFFEE & CAKE NIGHTS:
Straight after choir, time to chat and meet new people, over delicious cakes and drinks:
