Our Musical Director, Tim Pithers, first opened up one of our evening rehearsals in May 2018 to demonstrate how SATB choirs work to anyone who wishes to find out and to encourage new members. There were at least 6 new faces (one choosing to observe and 5 to sing along) from Widecombe, Manaton and Moretonhampstead.
A fun and unusual evening was had by all including audio learning of parts and much that relied on watching and responding to our conductor and concentrated work on the summer concert programme.
The intent now to is dedicate a day in each of our terms to a planned open rehearsal. Watch this space – and also remember we are happy for prospective new members to come along any time.
