War Is Over

18 Oct

We’re starting our preparations for Christmas early this year! We have lots of songs to get ready for our Christmas gigs!

Come and see us sing at the Otley Christmas Lights switch on (Monday 2nd December) and at our Christmas Party (Sunday 22nd December – Korks)

Last night we started work on Happy Xmas (War is Over)

 

War Is Over

The song was written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and released in 1971. It is a protest song about the Vietnam war, encouraging social unity and peaceful change.  Lennon apparently wanted the song to be optimistic whilst avoiding the sentimentality of many Christmas songs. 

 

You can find the score here…

Hello lovely singers!

Apologies for taking so long to get the demo on the blog… 

it seems that this is the season for dodgy colds and coughs and i know some of you have been suffering too much to come and join us on a Thursday. I hope this will help you catch up with what you have missed.

Hope to see you very soon

🙂
