Well the last few months have seen lots of change and certainly been a busy few months for the choir as we prepare for our summer concert.
Over this time the choir has performed its first flashmob (at John Lewis, Birmingham) where we also performed a small set of songs in celebration of Pride which we then replicated at the LGBT centre on the Sunday.
As a small community group part of a bigger, but minority community, we wanted to be able to show our respect the best way that we can for those that were part of the Orlando tragedy and were proud that we were able to sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow for the Birmingham LGBT centre’s vigil which was a very moving affair.
Our last engagement before our summer concert saw another choir first – we sang (and had a lovely time) at Coventry Pride. We were very impressed with this event and received a really warm welcome!
So lastly, it’s only a few weeks to our summer concert – Icons & Legends (Saturday 23rd July 2016, doors open at 7pm, you can either get tickets directly from us, which is a bit cheaper (£7.00 in advance), or from http://rainbow-voices.brownpapertickets.com). This year our concert is being held at Bournville Gardens – an extra care village which has its own village hall with a stage and everything! (it’s actually on the former site where Bournville College used to be on the Bristol Road).
Watch this space for more details but save the date as we will also be having a new members workshop on Saturday 10th September at Trefoil House in the City Centre (this will take place for a couple of hours in the morning so that old and new members can then go for a spot of lunch together, and maybe a cheeky little aperitif too!). We really need a few more altos!!
Hopefully see lots of you on 23rd July!
