Community Christmas Choir @ The Annunciation
Once again this year we would love to have a home-grown choir as part of our Christmas celebrations at The Annunciation, Windermere
Avenue. If you love singing carols and are happy to be part of a church service then we’d love to welcome you to be part of
the choir. Being able to read music is not essential. You also
don’t have to be a church goer. Our carol service is a real
community event and we’d love to make it special by having
a community choir. Dates are as follows:
Community Choir event:
Carol service: Sunday 8th December 5.30pm
One morning rehearsal:
Saturday 2nd November 9.30am for coffee and croissants: rehearsal from 10.00am - 12.30pm
Then buffet lunch and leave! (a chance to get to know each other a little & food suitable for all food preferences - let us know).
Friday 15th November: 7.15 – 9.15pm
Wednesday 20th November: 7.15 – 9.15pm
Wednesday 27th November: 7.15 – 9.15pm
Wednesday 4th December: 7.15 – 9.15pm
Sunday 8th December: 3.00pm – 4.30pm pre performance run through and light refreshments.
If you’d like to be involved and can make the dates… (We also have a WhatsApp group that all the parts for learning are posted so you can practice in the car/at home! so if you can't make every date you can still be rehearsing away from the group).
Contact me, Jacqui Goddard:
or by clicking on the link below and leaving a message there.
Please see below for detailed explanation of the event and rehearsals.
A carol service is a time when the church traditionally celebrates with the local community the story of Christ, God's son, being born to bring God into direct contact with his creation. Carols and readings from the bible (lessons) telling the story have been sung and recited down the decades going back to King Henry VIII's times.
There are many people who, whether with a deep Christian conviction or a more casual link, enjoy engaging in this tradition and who want to share in the joy of the occasion. If you are one of those people and you love to sing then we'd love to share in this celebration in song with you.
The plan is to keep it manageable, fun and inspiring. So we have one longer rehearsal planned for a Saturday (as above) and three Wednesday rehearsals.
With one final rehearsal on the afternoon of the event at 5.30pm, we should be ready for the big sing up!
NB on the Saturday rehearsal there will be coffee and croissants first thing, comfort breaks with tea and coffee provided as well as a light sandwich lunch to end our time together. Please bring a bottle of water with you to support all your hard work on the evening rehearsals.
I look forward to hearing from you.
