Committee News & 2018 Events

Here is a list of events which are planned for 2018, so that you can get them into your diaries. Fuller information about each event will appear on the website nearer to the time.

Sunday 22nd April – Regional Evensong at Holy Trinity, Leverstock Green, 2:30pm to 6:30pm (service at 5:30pm).

Repertoire for the Regional Evensong and the Area Choirs Festival, and probably also the Safari Evensong, will be drawn from the King of Glory, King of Peace book which has just been published by RSCM Press. This includes a good range of music suitable for all choirs. We shall be able to offer advantageous purchase terms in conjunction with bookings for these events – details to follow. A flipbook of the publication is on https://www.rscmshop.com/s0176.html if you wish to whet your appetite meanwhile.

Awards sessions will be held at St. Michael, Watford on Saturdays 3rd March and 3rd November, and at St. Andrew, Bedford on Saturday 23rd June. Further information will be published on the web-site shortly. We understand that there will be some changes to administrative arrangements (but not syllabuses), of which we are awaiting details.
