January 2014 NEWSLETTER Harmonies & Harminies

A very warm welcome to the first newsletter of 2014 – we’ve had a little break with Andrew’s new job but thanks to a kind volunteer we are up and running again!

Just in case you missed any of the sessions up until Christmas I would like to reiterate my thanks to each and every one of you for your support and commitment to sessions, performances and social activities during 2013; we continue to be well received and the name of A Handful of Harmonies is associated with a high standard whether it is within your sessions or in the public arena.

Somewhere along the line I hope you are also having a good time and improving your singing, confidence and health.

The Christmas and New Year break is coming to an end and I am looking forward to working on some exciting new material in the Spring term which begins during the week of 6th to 10th January.

If you are not a Show Choir member and would like to join – spaces are still available. New for 2014 is that we will be working in two groups and singing in four parts! Yes four parts – come along and give it a try!

Performances 2014

There are no performances scheduled in the next few weeks but bookings for the following will open on 1st January 2014:

An Afternoon with A Handful of Harmonies
2.00pm Sunday 2nd March, Spalding United Reformed Church, Spalding.

Sing for Spring 2014
7-30pm Saturday 26th April, The Fleet, Peterborough.

So a few quiet weeks coming up on the performance front as things stand but each month there is at least one social event being organised by the Friends of A Handful of Harmonies more information about the Friends can be found on the following link:- or on the display boards available at each session.

So why not get involved with some of the “extra- curricular” activities that are also available!

So I can only say I hope you are well rested and raring to go when we set off on 6th January on another journey of discovery as we imprint the “AHOH effect” on a selection of much loved tunes.

Looking forward to seeing you all again very soon Andrew xx
