Calling All Singers

Hi everyone,
I hope that you and yours are keeping safe and well in this current crisis.
As it seems it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to rehearse together in the immediate future, I wondered if you might be interested in rehearsing two pieces virtually.
This would be a fundraising project that will last 8 weeks;
28/6  (5.00 pm T & B, 6.00 pm S & A)
5/7                               ”
12/7                            ”
19/7                           ”
26/7 (5.00 pm All)
2/8                               ”
9/8                              ”
16/8 5.00 pm All, Final recording

We’d make a donation to a cancer charity in memory of our dear friend Maxine Ingrouille Kidd, who as you know, sang with the Wedmore opera chorus.
This email is initially for me to poll who may be interested in participating. I would use a piano for rehearsals and orchestral instruments for the performance.

The pieces I have in mind are the Easter hymn from Cav, and a beautiful chorus from the Peart Fishers
Can you let me know if you’re interested? cdmusic@btinternet.com

Spring 2020 Update

Wedmore Opera’s trustees met last week on Zoom! We had our AGM followed by a committee meeting where we discussed future plans in these unsettling times.

We wanted all our singers, musicians and supporters to know that we are thinking of you, but even more importantly to let you know that we are totally committed to putting on a production in 2021. We are building flexibility into our plans to hopefully ensure that whatever the scenario, we are able to offer a quality of production to which you have been accustomed

We can build on the groundswell of new support that we had last year and at Burns Night in January, – doesn’t that seem a lifetime ago? We want to do all we can to keep opera thriving in the village.

Stay safe and well.
