First ever get-together
We had our first get-together on Saturday 17th November, 2019, in Manchester. It was kindly hosted by the Hallé at St Michael's, and around 20 choir leaders came together for a day of singing. We had a great time! Five different leaders took different segments of the day, and we sang a very wide variety of repertoire, from rounds to new compositions, from Dowland to Deck The Halls. People had travelled from near and far - some people quite near, some people very far! I knew that one of the choir leaders was going to be travelling from Edinburgh to join us in Manchester, and I was convinced that would be the longest journey someone would make - until I met the lady who flew over from Belfast just to sing with us! Now that's what I call dedication!
We're looking forward to running the next get-together in the South on 23rd November, then getting more dates in the diary for next year.
