We still don't know when we'll be able to meet again, so we can't start a count-down to that happy time. Instead, we'll have a count-up

SingaZoom: FurtherAdventures

SingaZoom: SpringaZoom

ran in February and March, and was the last in the series. 
Graduates of the SingaZoom 'school' now know a lot more than they did about solfa, have had some cheery, sociable times and - with the help of Choir Community recordings - have sung some great songs.

Spring Party...

Spring Sing Bagatelle Clear Breath  scre

Bagatelle, singing Clear Breath by Emily Marshall

... for members of The Quangle Wangle Choir, Wacapella and The Live Wire Choir
on Saturday 27th March at 7.30, via Zoom.
This was a Springalicious feast of sociability, poetry, creativity, music and wildlife photography. Special thanks to Hilary for her quiz, John and Margaret for their string playing, Dee, Stella and Cathie for their poetry, Bagatelle for their song and Prita and Lizzie for their bird photos and singing.
 
Phil Sterling, onetime county ecologist for Dorset, introduced us to his work on enabling wild flowers to flourish on British road verges. See here for an idea of his inspiring work.
Paper plates were miraculously turned into Easter bonnets in just ten minutes (or longer if they were ones that had been 'made earlier'). Have a look at the gallery below to see a few of our creations! For added kitsch, listen to Easter Parade as the images float by.

Circles Into May

Members of The Quangle Wangle Choir, Wacapella and The Live Wire Choir are invited to gather in Radipole School playground on Saturday 22nd May from 10.20am to sing for a few minutes at 10.30. We will keep to groups of no more than 30 and there will be marshals to tell you where to go. We'll sing Circles Into May and As I Me Walked.

The Great Return

The hope is that we will be able to return to singing at Radipole School for the last few Saturdays of the summer term ie from June 26th to July 24th.
 
Obviously this depends on circumstances at the time, and obviously there will be rules such as not coming if unwell with Covid symptoms - and whatever other measures are sensible when the happy day comes. The success of the vaccination programme is giving us all hope that we will once again be able to 'share the buzz and solace of singing together', as our constitution says.
Warning: Emotions will run high!
