The Fleet Singers will be taking part in the Christ Church Summer Concert Sunday 7 July 5-7pm along with the Belsize Community Choir and choirs from Christ Church and Heath Street Baptist Church. Our varied programme includes three Rutter pieces, the German Wanderers Nachtlied which we didn’t have time to perform at the Armistice event, Amazing Grace, two contrasting Zulu songs, Pastime with Good Company once attributed to Henry VIII, Barbara Ann and Bring Me Sunshine. Individual members of the Fleet Singers will also be appearing with a recorder solo and in an excerpt from a play written by one of the altos. The concert is preceded by a Fair 2-4.30pm which will include a Traidcraft stall run by the provider of Fairtrade treats for our Monday rehearsals.
Every Monday in term-time, 7.30-9.30 pm at Gospel Oak Methodist Church
This spring term the Fleet Singers have been focusing on John Rutter's Feel the Spirit, a fun, moving and challenging set of spirituals, which we'll perform in a concert Sunday 31st March. The choir has really enjoyed working on some of the piece's more challenging rhythms and harmonies under the guidance of our conductor Phil Wilcox and with the support of our brilliant pianist Philip Godfrey. In Phil’s absence, a couple of weeks before the concert, “Antoine DingDong” helped us clarify and energise the rhythms of Jericho, I got a Robe and When All the Saints. Rehearsals can be fun as well as hard work and we always have a sociable break with Fairtrade cuppa and biscuit or occasional celebratory cake.
