Freshers’ Week is underway…

Freshers' Week Stand

Committee members Adam and Ciáran at the Choral stand in Front Square

The first day of Freshers’ Week has been a great success with many new members joining Choral. A quick reminder about this week’s events – we are joining the Hist for their pub crawl tomorrow (Tuesday). Meet at the Hist stand in Front Square at 6 pm for that. Then, on Friday, we are hosting our wine reception to kick off the year. It should be a good opportunity to meet the committee and other new members. It’s on in the Eliz Rooms, House 6 (First Floor) at 6pm. Then of course there’s our first rehearsal on Wednesday the 29th, where we are expecting a big turnout. We hope to see as many members as possible at these events over the coming days.

Freshers’ Week 2010

Front Square during Fresher's Week

It’s that time of year again – Fresher’s Week is now but a few days away, and Choral is all set to get going with the new academic year. Our committee members will be at the society stand in Front Square throughout next week to sign up new members and also to welcome back previous members. Our main event for next week is a wine reception in the Eliz Rooms on the first floor of House 6 at 6 pm on Friday the 24th of September. We hope to see many of you there!

Of course, Choral will not truly be back in business until our first rehearsal in Regent House on Wednesday 29th September at 18:30. Our programme for the Michaelmas Term Concert will be a Christmas themed celebration of the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, consisting of Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Hodie and will take place in the Exam Hall, Trinity College. We looking foward to seeing you at our events over the coming weeks.

Regards,

The Committee
