This year our wonderful Chiltern Community Choirs Festival reaches its 9th year, and it’s a case of ‘9 online’! As we can’t meet in person, we are going to bring you a festival, via Zoom, on Saturday 24th October, from 10.30am to 1pm.
Our voice leaders’ team, Emily, Janet, Sarah, Roger and Bruce, will take us through the usual festival morning – introductions, warm-ups, two or three short songs and one big main song. Our theme, indicated by the title, is ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and so our one big main song will be the ‘Lobster Quadrille’, a song written by Roger which we learnt two years’ ago. We are inviting you to have some item on hand to put on when we sing it – you can dress up as anyone you like from ‘Alice’ – or match the colour of the flyer, in lobster orange!
We aim to give you a fun morning and an experience as close as we can to being together in a big hall. In addition to singing, we will show some pictures and videos from previous festivals while you take your coffee break mid-morning.
The booking and payment details will be sent to you when you email us to book a place. Nearer the date of the festival we will be sending you the programme for the day and words of any songs that you need to have.
We know not everyone likes or is familiar with Zoom so, before the day of the festival, we will send out simple step-by-step instructions for using Zoom and we will invite you to email us with your questions and problems which we will try to solve. Our technical team will be on standby on the day to help anyone struggling with the technology.
