Salcombe Community Gospel Choir News

SCGC News 6/11/17

Dear Member,

                On behalf of the committee it has been so great seeing everyone over the last couple of weeks and see our confidence grow in the songs that we have been learning. It has been especially great to see how those new to the choir have integrated themselves and picked up some of our repertoire brilliantly. This newsletter will be available on the website, along with all previous newsletters, everything that you need is there as well, if you do have any problems with the website please do say.

No Rehearsal Thursday

There will be no rehearsal this Thursday (9th November) as Caroline Evans is away and the committee felt as though a break could be useful. However, we shall meet as normal from the following Thursday (16th November), in Salcombe Church from 7:30pm. Even though there is no choir practise this week, that does not stop you from singing as all our song words and music is on the website for you to practise along to.
