As Coronavirus regulations are being relaxed, we are planning to hold the choir Annual General Meeting at Portobello Methodist Church on Monday, September 7th, starting 7.30pm. All appropriate Social Distancing will be observed, and we are looking forward to seeing our members again!
Please watch this space for confirmation.
The choir would not function without the excellent work done by our committee in organising our affairs. Here they are.
Margaret is one of the longest serving members of the choir, sitting in the soprano section , and helps to organise publicity for the choir generally and for specific concerts. She was appointed President at the AGM in 2009.
Pam was re-elected at the 2019 AGM and will no doubt do as good a job as she did previously.
Musical Director-Justine Clarke
Justine was appointed in January 2011 after 20 years as a choir member and has introduced a number of modern pieces to our repertoire. We have been regularly complimented on the variety in our programmes. She leads us in a refreshing way and rehearsals are always lively!
Secretary- Margaret O'Callaghan is currently standing in.
Treasurer -Anne Langley
Anne is a contralto and joined the choir in 1979 . She has been Treasurer for the last 20 years, keeps a firm grip on finances and produces the programme for the annual charity concert.
Matt joined us in 2019 and is just getting used to us!
Concert Organiser- Pat Small
Pat is a soprano and not only does she do the administration for concerts but she also looks after arrangements for new uniforms . A very useful lady.
Soprano Representative-Annette Peach
Annette has only recently joined us but is very keen.
Contralto Representative- Vacant
Publicity Representative- Susan Cooper
Susan is a relatively new member but looks after publicity and communication generally and is always willing to help out.
Tenor Representative- Alan Cooper

Dennis quickly volunteered to be bass rep and he is not shy to voice his opinion. He also looks after the Notice Board ( his idea! ) at rehearsals.
