A walking treasure hunt in Rothwell
"The Seagrave Singers Go Searching"
On Monday, 17th July, The Seagrave Singers ended their 2017 summer sessions with a Treasure Hunt in Rothwell, planned by Kay Carson and myself, Margaret Reed. Over 20 members enjoyed a look round the town centre searching for clues, and taking in many of the historic bildings in the town ~ the Market House, Jesus Hospital and Holy Trinity Church. No one got lost on their walk and afterwards we all met in the lounge of the Conservative Club at Tresham Hall, and enjoyed a buffet supper and a quiz.Great fun was had by all!!

Seagrave Singer Second Soprano
This time it was KISS ME KATE, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter.......
1940's Baltimore and it's opening night.....Ten minutes to the curtain going up and backstage all hell is let loose! The story unfolds on and off stage as romantic entanglements, mistaken identities and hairy encounters ensue. The show is full of wit and mischief and includes songs "Another Op'in, Another Show", "Brush Up Your Shakespeare", "To Darn Hot" and "So In Love".

Sue's Singing Workshop
Saturday saw the Seagrave Singers at their second singing workshop. Thanks to MD Sue Peel who once again provided an informative, stimulating and entertaining singing experience which managed to hold our attention for the whole day. Thanks also to Karen for her support on the keyboard and for brightening our day with one of her many show-stopping outfits, the ladies helping to set up the room and providing tea and coffee for the breaks and in fact everyone for the lovely food provided for our bring and share lunch. Great Addington Village Hall provided an ideal venue, although our striving for perfection did not necessarily extend to the car park, and if only bell ringing practice at the church opposite had been a bit earlier it would have fitted in nicely with Oranges and Lemons of the London Medley!

9th July 2016
On a warmish Saturday evening members of the choir once again travelled to Kilworth House Hotel Theatre, nr Lutterworth. The first of the summer shows this year was "West Side Story", and what an excellent performance it was too. Wonderful singing, and energetic dancing drew the audience into the show. The creative backdrop and seamless moving of props made the story come alive. Everyone agreed it was a fabulous show. It made a change to sit and enjoy the show without the need for blankets.....and some choir members even ventured to have a picnic!!
27th June 2016Following a week-end of concerts it was a welcome break from rehearsing to have the choir Summer Social. This was held in the newly refurbished "Barn", part of The Red Lion Pub, Rothwell.
The evening took the form of a quiz, prepared by choir member Lynne Parker and her husband, Kev. Teams of four competed against each other. The winners were "The Gees".....but it was a close run thing. Mid way through the evening there was a delicious buffet. Thank you to Maxine Reynolds for organising the event.
