Wow what a night 

Sing into Spring Course week 1. kicked off with a staggering 20 guests joining us;  thank you to Tree  and I think Audrey  the wonderful car park ushers.

The evening started with a flashmob singing "Let Me Be There"   no warning or introduction, section leaders, started the rest of chorus joined in by the 3rd word of the song. 
We had vocal warm up,learnt a tag, and jiggled up and down scales so our guests could select a harmony or lead part.   The music team sang That's Life  .. a few rehearsals, it was the first time we all sang together.  You will have heard the tricky bits, dodgy timing and glances at the sheet music.

Chorus and guests divided into sections to rehearse Tha'ts Life bars 5 to 14.  Regrouping back to Risers we sang and what an amazing sound we made.  Alison set our homework for next week, so refer to your plan starting from bar 1 to and include week 2. 

Thanks to Cherry and Elyshia for hosting the refreshments; guests were invited to stay and watch chorus work on two songs.

We sang happy birthday to Alice and a few guests joined us on the Risers for our closing song.

We must thank the Sing into Spring team for all their hard work to make this event happen, Dawn, Alison and Kate B. Chrissie, and myself ( I ordered the pencils) - Pam ordered badge holders. Apologies if I have missed anyone. I was aware by Wednesday of this week the What's Ap was smoking.  Thank you Kate G for pitchpiping and for bringing the milk.

Keep safe and keep singing
