Summer Term 2022
Following our successful 3rd April performance of Howard Goodall’s Eternal Light Requiem and a short Easter break, we will be regrouping Monday 25th April for our 10 week summer term.
We’ll be working towards a summer concert performing some of the pieces we spent time on in lockdown including “Making Poems” which was commissioned from our accompanist Philip with words from Fleet Singers alto Cicely Herbert who co-founded Poems on the Underground.
We will also be revising another piece composed by Philip Godfrey, Day by Day, a setting the words of the Prayer of St Richard of Chichester which we recorded during lockdown.
We will also be learning some of Vaughan Williams 5 Folk Songs,
A Prayer for Ukraine and a fun upbeat African number called Shosholoza.
We continue to meet for rehearsals at the Gospel Oak Methodist Church, with Covid precautions. The rehearsals are hybrid, so members can attend on Zoom if they prefer. We are welcoming new members – contact us by email and come along for a FREE trial session.
£60 for ten weeks – cheques made payable to Fleet Singers.
