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...

Autumn/Winter 2016

It’s been a busy half year, with our ‘Bring the lads night’, when we persuaded the men in our lives to join us singing for the evening. We really enjoy our nursing home tours and so were thrilled to be able to revisit the lovely ladies and gents in Shepshed, it really sets us in the Christmas mood. We’ve sung carols at the Carillon Shopping Centre and we also had a very successful night singing at The Horse, by a roaring fire, very Christmassy. However the season culminated...

Spring/Summer 2016

We welcomed back our lovely friend Nicole Jordan to the Musical Director position after Tom Stanyard had given us a great couple of years of technical excellence and led us to new heights. We were excited to get started on this years ambitious Summer Concert and really enjoy it. We chose the theme of “Singing Through the Decades” and had pieces from the 1910’s all the way through to the 2010’s. With more and more of us gaining confidence is solo or small groups we could...

Autumn/Winter 2015

For this year’s Christmas Concert we wanted to do something a little different and we were pretty bored of the usual Christmas songs and carols, so we decided to perform Christmas Number Ones from the last 60 years. There was a little bit of everything and so hopefully something for everyone from When a Child is Born to Bohemian Rhapsody. We voted for The Shepshed Volunteer Service to be our charity of the year, so hopefully we can do them proud this year with all our hard work and...

Spring/Summer 2015

A great term, which culminated in our Music and Memories Concert. We performed at two venues in June; One was at Thorpe Acre Church, which raised money for the church, and the second performance at Shepshed High School where we raised money for our charity of the year – The Peter Le Marchant Trust, who run boating holidays for sick and disabled people. The Music and Memories Concert was really special for us all as it took songs that were of special significance for us and shared this...

Autumn/Winter 2014

We have had a much less frantic autumn/winter term this year. After spreading ourselves pretty thin in previous years we committed ourselves to one big Christmas concert this year. But, we also wanted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the 1st World War and so we incorporated that into the theme of the concert – so “Christmas in the Trenches” was born. So as well as all the usual Christmas favourites we were learning songs like “When This Lousy War is...
