Singing Spring

Hi Gang

Clues abound that spring has finally shown it’s fresh face; the early buds that gardeners adore, the birdsong, and the neighbours you haven’t seen in months – all signs of winter folding it up for another year. Woo hoo! Similarly, signs exist of the inevitability of our upcoming concert at St. James Cathedral on Sunday April 28th. One of them is our concert set list:

  1. A La Claire Fontaine
  2. Earth Air Fire Water
  3. Merge With The River
  4. The Ghost Of Oak Island
  5. In Een Blauwgeruite
  6. The Water is Wide
  7. Stone and Sand
  8. Homeward Now
  9. Hear the Raindrops Fall
  10. She The Sea

And in the spirit of spring cleaning your house – get your music neat and tidy in concert order in a black, noise reducing folder so we don’t sound like we’re fashioning paper airplanes on stage when we’re shoulder to shoulder.

As spring is a time of renewal – I’ll renew the appeal to you all to put some time into any fundraising effort you can make. We’ve got raffle baskets to fill, advertisers to find for our concert programme, sponsorship ideas to flesh out, and volunteers to source for a multitude of tasks. You can come forward anytime at the front desk or contact the following people directly with your scathingly brilliant ideas:
