Open Event Success

Our first Open Event in a while and we weren’t disappointed. From time to time, we invite people to come along and try out a cappella singing to see if it’s for them and we were joined by four lovely ladies: Sue, Davina, Pat and Maria-José. Three of them had never sung before and weren’t sure if they could. A hilarious warm-up broke the ice and helped people to relax, before we got into learning the song together.

Spangles members demonstrated the a cappella sound by performing two songs for our guests. After rehearsing in sections, we had some well-earned coffee and delicious carrot cake to get us ready to bring the song together, aided by the very capable Tenor Section Leader, Barbara, who took on the MD role for the day. Kate, who started with the chorus as a Lead, volunteered to learn the song in Tenor and she did a fine job after just two weeks of learning. In fact, every single member and guest did a fantastic job and even our photographer, Øyvind, was impressed!

We were delighted to take the opportunity to present Kate and Mags with their Spangles stars on becoming fully-fledged Spangles. They joined us in September and worked incredibly hard to learn all of our Christmas songs, so that they could join us for the 12 festive singouts that we had booked – they did a fantastic job too!

Here are the lovely memories of the Open Event, captured by Øyvind Dammen – Thank you for your fabulous photos and continuing support.
