Spring/Summer 2019

What a varied programme of events we’ve had this term. We had a visit from Tara of TSAVocal who took us on an Abba adventure, teaching us some Abba songs, which I know our members loved. There was also our 7th birthday to celebrate, none of us would have thought 7 years ago we’d still be here, and look how much we’ve achieved. Then onto the serious rehearsing for this year’s Summer Concert, which a Serenade Sings with Friends. The concert gave us an opportunity to sing with some of our nearest...

Autumn/Winter 2018

After a brief break over the Summer Holidays we were back into some previously performed songs to remind ourselves we do know what we are doing really 😊. Our AGM was much later than usual in October and that gave us all time to settle back into the choir and avoid too many of us being on our summer hols. We presented the cheque to the outgoing charity of the year, which was Shepshed Community Swimming Pool, We managed to raise a whopping £3400!!!! The biggest single cheque we’ve...

Nicole our Musical Director talked us through the choice of sings for our Summer Concert and then we were treated to a 1930’s/40’s dance night from a couple of guest dancers. The dancers demonstrated how to really do it with some...

Autumn/Winter 2017

  We started off this term with our AGM and the following week we invited our charities of the year to receive their fundraising cheques. After all our hard work of the previous twelve months it was great to invite STEPS and the Shepshed Toy Library to receive cheques for £1500 each. This was a remarkable achievement in itself, but we also has some surplus money in the kitty, and being the generous lot we are, we decided to share this out with all of our previous charities. Peter le...

Spring/Summer 2017

We were without our wonderful accompanist Ness for a few weeks in the Spring term, and with the Easter holidays and bank holidays, the pressure was on to get us into shape for our Summer Concert. Our Musical Director Nicole wasn’t daunted though; she set us an ambitious concert programme to learn, pushing us to learn all new songs (something we had never done before on this scale), some without music and learning the actions too!! But, thankfully, Peter and David stepped in to help to make...
