Enfield Choirs Showcase: Latest Information
The Enfield Choirs Showcase is being held in aid of the Nightingale Cancer Support Centre on Saturday 28th September. The organisers have now decided to let all choir members have seats in the auditorium (no donation required). There will be a raffle should you want to take part on the day, so please bring some money.
If you find you cannot after all use your place in the auditorium, please let Lesley J know asap at email@example.com as it can then be made available to a member of the public.
We have now heard that we will be first on. Our Schedule is as follows:
5.00pm sharp: Arrive at Enfield Baptist Church, Cecil Road

Here is the list – in order – of the ECS repertoire for our slot:

Morley – Now is the Month of Maying
The Fauré is in the French Songs compilation and the Morley and Stanford are both in the English Love Songs compilation.
If staying for the concert, please listen to your part for the Grand Finale, ‘Joyful, joyful’ and if possible bring a copy of the words. (I’ll bring a few spares on Saturday.) Joyful, joyful will be rehearsed after the soundchecks on Saturday.
