Last night’s rehearsal

Eight weeks until our next concert – seemed like ages away until Caroline reminded us that we have Easter, a Bank Holiday and two sessions she can’t run before the big night itself.  That definitely sharpened our minds up!  Last night went particularly well with Mamma Mia! and Somebody to Love sounding very good. Also a couple of oldies […]

The Work Continues . . . . .

Although our next concert is not until 21st May there was no rest for the wicked last night at our rehearsal.  We revisted our Fly me to the moon book in readiness for the next concert, together with some old favourites which have made it once more to the top of the pile.  We’re continuing […]

Post Concert Rest

7th March A well-earned rest for us all last night following our concert on Saturday at Shirley Baptist Church For a summary of the Concert click here.

Progressing Well

So the new pieces are going well.  Apparently we will be getting some a cappella music soon (that’s singing without Mark playing – which is always scary).  We will know the tune and it’s for the May concert so we’ve plenty of time to learn without the accompaniment of the ivories.  Tickets are on sale […]

First Rehearsal of the Year

Happy New Year – now come and join us!

So, the turkey was stuffed, the choristers sang, the bells rang out and the New Year was ushered in.  And now it’s the long haul through January.  Will we see snow?  Will it ever stop raining? Instead of sitting at home watching War and Peace on a Sunday evening why not come along to a […]

Soon be Christmas

Hot on the heels of our Autumn Concert we are busy rehearsing our Christmas Presentation. As well as some great music we also welcome our guests, Solihull Youth Brass Band . .  and if we can pry him away at this busy time of the year a special visitor may be dropping in. Proceeds are […]

Fellowship presentation

On November 12  Denise, Maureen and Mike visited Marie Curie Hospice in Marsh Lane, Solihull and presented a cheque to their fund-raising team for the grand sum of £600. This was the amount raised by the Fellowship Singers as a result of the October Concert.

Concert, October 10, Shirley Methodist Church

We are in a state of readiness for our up and coming Concert  titled ‘Music Around The World’ – with some old favourites give a new slant and some exciting new numbers. Below is the poster for the event.
