Writing on a very murky day, a quotation from Dr JR Stockton comes into focus: “February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March”. Mind you, we already have spring flowers in bloom and the propagator is dusted off for a spot of seed sowing. February is always ‘break the resolution’ time as too many seeds are bought despite my January intentions of growing less ‘stuff’.
The Dukeries Singers is in full rehearsal mode with an exciting programme of music to delight its audiences. As always, choir members aim to provide a varied programme of styles of music so that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
We have one concert booked — Saturday 10th March at Weston near Sutton — and two concerts to be arranged — a joint concert with The Newstead Abbey Singers and a concert at the RAFA Club in Newark.
If you would like to book the choir for your charity do, fund raising effort, birthday bash or any other celebration, call concert secretary Phil on 01623 822070. He would be delighted to hear from you.
We rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.15pm in The Concert Hall at The Dukeries Academy, Ollerton, best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park. You can find more information about the choir online at www.thedukeriessingers.com, Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube.
