This update comes from Jacqui and Mary - our fabulous Outreach Co-ordinators. They've been super busy and there's loads of opportunities to help them out - read on to find out more!
First of all I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that was involved in carol singing before Christmas. You all did a fantastic job and we have received some lovely messages from the charities saying how much they appreciated our visiting.
Outreach choir rehearsals will be starting again on Wednesday 24th at 1pm in the Danel Room. All are welcome! For those who are new to Outreach, it is a fantastic opportunity to see what a positive impact your musical skills can have on people in the local community as well as giving you some great skills to put on your CV. Please join the Outreach Choir Facebook group for more information https://www.facebook.com/groups/1525539447702042/
We are currently looking for someone to assist in the conducting of Outreach choir.
