Vocality: they will now be meeting WEEKLY on THURSDAYS This new arrangement will start on Thursday 9th May at 2pm to 3.30 pm in Udimore Hall. The change has come about from the members wanting to meet more regularly to learn and remember new pieces of music. They sing an eclectic mix of songs mainly suggested by members and do not want to sing things that they don’t like. The group only perform occasionally, such as, St Michael’s Hospice’s, THE BIG SING, which is in October, or carols for a local nursing home. They know life can get complicated, they don’t insist on full attendance, but prefer members to join in because they want to. Vocality are friendly and enjoy a cuppa and biscuit after a sing session. Duncan Reid their musical director is patient and very amusing. Laughing is good for the muscles needed to sing. Please go along and join them, of course, there’s no audition. If you would like further information, please call Nadia on 01424 882948
