The Committee has worked hard with a number of local musicians, those associated with the School and outside venues to put together a programme of events, primarily for Members not singing in the Haydn Festival on 11th June.
With the intention of singing for fun and the enthusiastic support of Jonathan May, our own Ann Dackevych and John Bowen (who conducted the choir for the High Sheriff's Service) and the venues, we now offer the programme set out in Documents.

Jonathan, Ann and John have been magnificent in coming forward to arrange this programme and we invite you to match their enthusiasm with your own enthusiasm to sing for fun, before the summer break. Please sign up for the events so we can make the programme work. Non-Haydn Members have priority; any spare places for members of the Haydn Chorus will be allocated on a first-come basis . It is essential that we know who will participate by replying with your name, the programme and dates on which you will sing.

As well as the tremendous support and enthusiasm of Jonathan May, Ann Dackevych and John Bowen in its delivery, your Committee has also worked hard behind the scenes coordinating the programme, venues and music.  We are pleased to hear how much you are enjoying the events so far and warmly encourage you to continue to sign up for as many of the remaining events as you can!

Looking ahead, we plan to perform Bach's B minor Mass during Easter-tide 2018.
