The Choir like to socialise during the year.

Last rehearsal before coronavirus shutdown!

We were just discussing the news that it would be our last rehearsal for a while, when Julie lightened the mood by walking in wearing a mask and carrying toilet rolls, pasta and UHT milk. Well done Julie.

Take care ladies and keep singing.

Singing Day

 What a fabulous day the choir had when Musical Director, Heather Bates, lead us through a fun "Singing Day". The aim of the day was to "Blend" and "Bond"!

With much excitement we met at our previous rehearsal room in Park Infant School, Kettering on a cold Saturday morning. 

The whole day was extremely well organised. It started with an amusing warm up session followed by a powerpoint presentation demonstrating the right..... and wrong way of singing in a choir. Then it was our turn to "blend" our voices....in the correct way.

During the morning session we embarked on a brand new piece,  "Gloria" by Edward Gregson. Many of the choir members were not familar with the music but all agreed that it would be a fabulous and challenging piece to learn. We also concentrated on our diction as we sang through "Can You Hear Me?" A firm favourite with choir members. 

After lunch and another light hearted warm up, we started a second new song, the cheerful, "Chattanooga Choo Choo".  With this song we concentrated on tone and dynamics. The day ended by singing though a gospel song from our repertoire, "The Storm is Passing Over" .

"Bonding" came during our coffee, lunch and tea -breaks. The committee had organised refreshments, and the table was laden with home made cakes and biscuits. Teas and coffees were also provided. It was a great time to relax and chat with everyone. 

We sincerly hope that Heather will do a repeat singing day in the future!

Sister Act ~ Kettering Lighthouse Theatre

Although not an "official" Seagrave Singers outing, a number of choir members attended this brillant show during the week that it was performed. Choir members Pauline and Debbie are part of the KOS troupe and we were happy to suppport them. Kate and Louise went along to the opening evening. Kate pointed out that if you were expecting songs from the Sister Act movie, then you would have been disappointed because Alan Menkin wrote all new songs for the stage show. These new songs, were all sung with enthusiasm and passion. The choreography was danced with exuberance. No one could have been disappointed by the commitment of every member of KOS. It was a fantastic show!!

The Seagrave Singers all set out
The Golf Club was their venue
For a night of merriment
Fun was on the menu
Brightly shone the sequins there
All had dressed up smartly
Glitter sprinkled in their  hair
For the Christmas  party.
 
First came Kay with magic wand
Gaining our attention
Setting quizzes and card games
Played with concentration
Then the Pass the Parcel came
With gifts and forfeits laden
Round and round the table went
Treats for every maiden
 
Then it was the time to eat
All were feeling merry
Turkey, salmon and nut roast
Posset, pud and jelly
What a night of joy we had
The smiles and laughs were hearty
Sharing fun with all our friends
At the Seagrave party.
