The Choir have been singing Enya’s May It Be since we did our Music from the Movies concert in 2013, and it is very much enjoyed by us all. We used it as part of our gospel rep on tour last summer, and a video of one of those performances is below. This was filmed on a very hot day, when a few plans of places to visit did not come together (due to traffic, mostly), and you cannot tell from the Choir’s performance how hot and tired we were. We gave our usual high standard of concert that evening, and very much enjoyed ourselves.
No, not a calendar of events for next year (which will include our exciting tour to France), but instead an actual wall calendar. Being shot soon, the Choir will be releasing a 2013 calendar to help raise funds for the aforementioned tour. It promises to be a hit and will be available before Christmas. More information soon!
The excitement and fun of last year’s tour to Brittany is still fresh in many people’s memories, and so there has been talk of the next tour. The original idea was to go next summer, 2012, and to go further south this time, to the south coast of France (better weather). Rumour has it that the timing might change and more recent talk has been about 2013 instead. There has also beeen talk of a mini-tour over the water to the mainland, especially as the Bournemouth Male Voice Choir invited us over to join them in a concert after the Isle of Arts Festival concert. Stay peeled on the blog to find out what transpires.
