The Miner Chords are really pleased and proud to announce that they have a new MD – Glen Hart.

Our previous MD, Gordon Dryden has been on holiday and has also attended to some health maintenance.  He’s also said he’ll take most of next year off, hence our new MD.  The Miners are very grateful to Gordon for keeping us together and keeping us singing.  He’s going to join us again, occasionally, as an ordinary member and we look forward to having him in the Leads.

Speaking of sections, we really need a tenor or two, so if you know someone in Ipswich who could sing tenor with us, we’ll send you a virtual bottle of champagne to make it worth your while to send them along.

We are rehearsing now for several Christmas performances in November and December which means brushing up on songs for old members and learning new ones for the ‘new’ members.  We are also navigating our way through the challenges posed for women’s voices singing songs designed for men’s voices.

We recently sang at a Men’s Group.  We shared their evening meal and in return sang with them, then performed for them, and then got them to sing with us.  It really was fun – a bit of barbershop and a bit of free range singing, we even sang a hymn as a round!

Again, welcome to Glen – we’re looking forward to working with you.
