Concert for Peace
Joy Loss Hope
December 12th 2021

Well another term of ideas have been changed, our concert in July never happened but we did manage several rehearsals in the garden of a member. Wonderful.
During the summer we said goodbye to Vivienne Bellos, our founder and Music Director for over 39 years. She will, of course, remain as our President and consultant.
This term we will be rehearsing with Caitlin Downie who has an amazing cv having trained at Royal Holloway. We look forward to welcoming her on October 5th.
Our new Music Director, Alison Smart, will take over permanently in January 2022. We are really lucky to have found such excellent musicians to take over from the legend that is Viv.
Please feel free to look up Caitlin and Alison on their websites.

8PM TO 9.30PM October 5th 2021 will see the first rehearsal of the term at Martin School in East Finchley. We will be preparing for the Concert for Peace together with St John’s Church Friern Barnet. Things change so quickly at present so do join us by contacting us on alythchoralsociety@gmail.com as soon as possible.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAY YOU EMAIL WHETHER YOU ARE ATTENDING. THE ROOM WILL BE CAREFULLY SET UP FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS WELL SPACED. WE ARE ASKING THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST DOUBLE VAXED AND WELL. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN DRINK. THERE WILL BE NO TEA BREAK.

Music will be given out on October 5th of works by Klarman, Gilpin, Rutter, Leonard Cohen and John Lennon. These will be joined by Opera Choruses bringing Refugees, Slaves, Voyagers and Fearful Man. No prizes for where these opera choruses come from!!
