June 2015 – Working towards our next performance

4 Jun

We will be performing at Korks on 24th July alongside Otley Ukulele Orchestra and The Fortnights. It’s very exciting to have a gig to prepare for especially when there will be a few collaborations on the night!

We will be looking at the songs we will be performing at the event over the coming Thursdays – so I hope to see you here at The Woolpack Music Studios very soon!

Tonight we will start to look at a new song – and one we will be singing with Otley Ukulele Orchestra at the concert…

Hope you like it!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

24 Dec

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has come along to The Woolpack on a Thursday eve and put in so much to the choir. We have had a great year and I really can see and hear that we are going from strength to strength.

One of the most magical moments for me was WHITE CHRISTMAS and WAR IS OVER with The Fortnights at Korks last Sunday. AMAZING! But this year we have also had the magical experiences of singing for the Tour De France crowds, the Food Bank, the Donkey Sanctuary and The Christmas Tree festival.

It’s really exciting to think what 2015 has in store for us… new songs, performances and lots of fun Thursdays together.

Wishing you and your nearest and dearest a very Happy Christmas and a lovely new year! (We are singing for Tealbeck on Christmas Day at 2pm if you fancy joining us for an hour – meet at The Woolpack 1:45pm – all welcome!)

Listen to how amazing you all sound!!!!

October 2014 – AS – Stevie Wonder

7 Oct

Our new song is AS by Stevie Wonder. It is one of my all time most favourite songs. So beautiful in sentiment; it’s uplifting and full of positivity.

Watch this incredible studio footage of him singing AS with the band. I love the way the singers move!

And here is our version!

It was really great to be back singing with each other again after our summer break… and wonderful to welcome new singers too!

We started rehearsing Moon River in 3 part harmony, which you can have a listen to (a rough demo of) here…
