The Dukeries Singers completed their summer season and were ‘stood down’ for August for rest and recuperation. We had a ‘bit of a do’ after our last rehearsal with a tasty buffet and Ash and Ashley entertained us appropriately on violin and guitar. I have begun the autumn tidy in the garden and have no doubt that the autumn tidy in the music cupboard will also by now have been completed and all the lovely Christmas music unearthed ready for our start date of rehearsals on Wednesday 4th September.
The choir rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.00pm upstairs in the theatre refreshment area, at the Dukeries Academy, Ollerton. This is best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park.
We already have several confirmed bookings for concerts and carol sings but there are plenty of available dates if you would like to book us for your fundraising, celebration, anniversary or charity event. Do contact our secretary, Pauline on 07951 609217, she would be delighted to hear from you. Believe me, it is not too early to think about your Christmas events. You can find information about the choir at www.thedukeriessingers.com and also on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube.
Hope your autumn tidy is better than mine. I generally fail in the ‘chuck it’ category!
