Charity Concert for Dementia Care at 7.30pm on 18th November 2017,
Sneyd Community Centre, Vernon Way, Walsall WS3 2PA
In the last week we have sung in Willenhall Park and at home at Portobello Methodist Church and had some good fun.
The weather was fine for our stint in the park on Sunday and unusually for us we had microphones and amplifiers.We could be heard all over the park and quite a decent crowd attended and sang along at times. It was a really pleasant way to spend an afternoon and some of us had ice cream as well! Have a look.
An audience of 60 odd came to our home concert and we had a good singalong with an appreciative crowd. No photos yet but we raised £400 for new music. Thank you.
We sang at Portobello Methodist Church on April 8th and enjoyed ourselves, although the turnout was a bit on the low side. We are expecting a lot more on July 8th when we perform there for our own funds. Just for a change a behind the scenes look at the choir before the concert!
The Choir annual dinner in January went very well , we were entertained by Kathy Christian and finshed with a sing along. A fun evening!
A few pictures.
Our first performance was at St Emmanuel Church, Bentley, on March 11th, and we helped to raise over £200 to repair the church roof which was blown off in the recent gales. A good turnout and excellent cakes!
We sang carols at Sainsbury's, Wednesfield on December 2nd and 3rd and collected £250 from generous customers. We added this to the proceeds from the Charity concert and this enabled us to present a cheque for £1675 to Bob Broome the representative of Walsall Parkinsons Support Group. The cheque was handed over at our last rehearsal of 2016, and we have some pictures below.
At this rehearsal we also had a chance to meet the better halves of Edd, (Kim) and Nick, (Anna), and their new offspring Sophie, and Noah, respectively. It was also time to say a fond farewell to Edd , who is moving to become Musical Director to a choir nearer home. We thanked him for his enthusiasm and input and we will miss him. He will, of course, always be welcome at Willenhall Singers. We are all looking forward to Nick's undivided attention in 2017!
A quiz night has been rearranged for October 13th at Corpus Christi Social Club , Ashmore Park , all welcome.
