Sat 3rd December
Concert in Downpatrick Arts Centre. Please spread the word! and see earlier post HERE - The Day will involve a coach trip to Downpatrick.
A 33 seater coach has been booked to transport the choir and those parents who have volunteered to manage the choristers (and gentlemen of the choir!). The coach will depart St George's at 2.15pm sharp. There will be a rehearsal from 4.00pm to 5.30pm followed by something to eat. There will then be a 'warm up' for all the singers at 7.00pm to focus on the concert which begins at 7.30pm. The coach will then depart Downpatrick at 10.00pm to return to St George's by 11.00pm. Please inform the Director of Music if any chorister wishes to travel home from the event with their respective parents so as to ensure that noone is left behind!
Friday 16th December
The choir has been asked to sing on Radio Ulster at the BBC Christmas party. The requirement for St George's is 15 mins of music and I have arranged for our contribution to feature in the first half of the concert so as to afford the boys an early night in the wake of their big fundraising concert the next day.
Sat 17th December
Xmas Concert in St George's. Rehearsal will begin at 5.45pm with the concert commencing at 7.30pm. Please spread the word about this concert. It will be the first which St George's has given in a long time and the proceeds will be going towards their Choir Trip to Oxford. I have secured the involvement of the actress Laura Hughes who will reading at this event. She is very much in demand and has been involved in the stage version of Adrian Mole which has received very favourable reviews. It is important that this event receives the full support of friends, family and parishioners and there will be something for everyone both musically and literally!
