December seems a long time back, and it was very busy too, with the four (five including MBP) Carol Services. Notwithstanding organ malfunctions, it all went very well, so thank you to everyone for your hard work.Choral Society, Yr 7 and Chapel Choir are all now in the final few weeks of preparation for Carmina Burana. This will be performed alongside Concert Choir, Yr 7 and Chamber Choir from MG, with four professional soloists, on 17th March at Wyastone, with Senior Strings opening the concert. Please put the date in your diary, these concerts are always memorable and enjoyable. The Chapel Choir is also working toward choral evensong in Chester Cathedral on 25th March (the last Wednesday of term) as well as singing for Eucharist in the School Chapel the Sunday before (Sunday 22nd March) with a rehearsal at 9.15 on that day. If any parents would like to come to Chester with us on the bus there’ll be about 9 spare seats, so do let me know.

Inevitably, the repertoire demands of the Germany tour will start to make their presence felt in the music that we tackle. By the time we get to the Summer term quite a number of us are distracted by exams so I’d like to make sure it has all been covered early; so I’m mentioning now that there will be a Germany Tour Choir and Strings ‘Sitzprobe’ on Thursday 7th May 4.15 – 6, which will allow us to touch every bit of repertoire early in the term and forestall nasty surprizes when we’re all busy with exams later. This is a very important rehearsal, so please could you put it into your diary now.

If there are issues with attendance for the above events please let me know in good time. All our dates can be found on the website www.habsmonmouth.org under ‘Music’. Follow us on Twitter on @monboysmusic for photos and reminders.
