Conductor Notes

Monday 19th November

Well done, we covered the Vaughan Williams in a lot of detail and revised Cherry Tree Carol.

Next week we’ll polish off the last section of the Vaughan Williams. Also be prepared to sing all of the carols in Carols for Choirs and in your folder. We’ll be back to an 8.45 finish.
Do get selling tickets this week!
