The half-term break offers a chance to relax and reflect on the exciting weeks ahead. Many of my students are preparing for their first performance platform event which takes place in just over two weeks. This gives all my students an opportunity to perform their chosen piece in a relaxed and friendly, informal environment.
Whilst, I no longer sing regularly with the cathedral choir myself, directing two local community choirs in Chester is a tremendous creative choral opportunity.
Chester Songsmiths are preparing to sing for the switch-on of the Christmas lights in Hoole as well as a Christmas Fair event at Chester Racecourse next month.
Caldy Valley Voices are preparing an evening of festive music and poetry which will take place at Caldy Valley Church, Chester on Friday 11th December starting at 7.30pm.
