GCS Weekly Warm Up (102416)

Posted October 25, 2016

Hello my singing friends!

My apologies for missing our newsletter last week, I was out of town and didn’t have time to send an email before I left. I trust you all enjoyed fine-tuning some songs in the sectionals. Our next sectionals session will be on January 4 after our Christmas break.

What We Sang Last Week
We worked on Pinafore, Queen, Thinking Out Loud and A Red, Red Rose.

What We’re Singing Next!
Oops .. no idea! Have a listen to the practice tracks!

Practice Tracks
I think all pieces are on our website now. Have a listen! Personally, I can’t wait to start on Loch Lomond. What a lovely arrangement! Click on The password is ‘gcs’.

Join us after Choir!
You’re all welcome to join us after choir for a cuppa tea or your bevvie of choice at the Pennywhistle. We enjoy talking about what we’re singing, and of course it’s always fun to hang our with our choir buddies. If you have any ideas for other social gatherings, be sure to drop me a line so I can spread the word, and/or post on our FaceBook page called ‘Friends of GCS‘.
