NEW MUSIC TEAM
Following advertisements that were made locally and nationally, we are very pleased to announce the following appointments:
Musical Director – Emelia McNeill – Emelia is the music teacher at Fremington School (in fact we met her at our last Carol Concert in 2109). She very much impressed us with her personality and enthusiasm to take on this role. Her references are of the very highest quality and she is also a fine Alto! Emelia's biography can be found on the Music Team page [Click here]
Accompanist – Sue Trick – Sue has played for us at rehearsal before, and you will recall she is the accompanist for the Chivenor Military Ladies Choir. Sue was Director of Music at Edgehill College.
Sue's biography can be found on the Music Team page [Click here]
Lockdown Activities With not being able to meet together physically since March 2020, members of the choir have been meeting regularly on Monday nights for a chat and and laugh on Zoom.
We have also put together a number of videos. All the contributors individually recorded their parts at home and their efforts were blended together.
