We are excited to be taking part in the nationwide celebrations on Armistice Day, Sunday 11th November, for the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. At 12 noon we will be singing a varied selection of music on the theme of peace at St Anne's Highgate between the end of their Sunday service which starts 10.30 and bell ringing at 12.30pm. The St Anne's Tower Bell Ringers are taking part in the nationwide Ringing Remembers campaign, to remember the 1,400 bell ringers killed in World War I.
Monday 12 November we will turn to Christmas as we prepare to take part in the Carol Service at Gospel Oak Methodist Church Sunday 16 December and sing carols in East Finchley station Monday 17 December.
New members welcome to join our community choir. No auditions. No need to read music. The singers are led by professional musical director Phil Wilcox ably supported by accompanist Philip Godfrey. Rehearsals can be hard work but also fun and we have a sociable break with Fairtrade cuppa and biscuit or occasional celebratory cake.
Every Monday in term-time, 7.30-9.30 pm at Gospel Oak Methodist Church
For their last concert at the end of July, the Fleet Singers abandoned their usual black with a dash of blue and donned stripey tops and sailor hats for a nautical concert. In addition to the main work, Stanford's Songs of the Fleet, there were some solos, some Purcell and G&S, one of the altos wandered round playing appropriate jigs on her violin and conductor Phil Wilcox engaged the audience in jolly communal singing of sea shanties. Refreshments and a supportive audience of family and friends old and new further contributed to another enjoyable evening at St Martin's Gospel Oak.
