Summer concert – 13th July 2019

St German’s booked for summer concert. Final details of programme to be confirmed. Party in the church hall afterwards.

Berlin Collaboration October 2019

Ardwyn and Llandaff Choral on board. Iain and Gilly to finalise a financial projection for the whole project to share with the Berlin orchestra. It was decided that travel arrangements would be up to choristers to arrange, as with the Lund tour, as choristers may wish to extend their stay in Germany beyond the weekend of the concert. Suitable hotel accommodation to be researched – more details to follow.

Concert Dress – For the March concerts, dress would be all black – long floor length dresses/skirts/trousers and black long sleeved tops for sopranos and altos. DJs and black shirts for tenors & basses. No ties or scarves – possibly some form of daffodil corsage may be created.

LOA – Rod Britton, Nia Evans, Anna Davies, Marilyn & Alan Thomas, Kate Thorogood, Carys Williams

The members’ area was continuing to cause problems. It needs to be password protected, but access once the password was created was still a problem. There are photos from the Vespers concert on the website, on the blog (click on the ‘more’ dropdown)
