SOUTH WEST COMMUNITY CHOIR CONVENTIONS 2019
ST.GEORGE’S, BRISTOL

SUNDAY 17TH MARCH & SUNDAY 7TH APRIL

 

Dear Choir Leaders and Choir Administrators,

It’s that time of year again! We very much hope that you’d like to return to, or bring your choir for the first time to sing at St. Georges for next year’s choir conventions. I’m Leela and I’ll be taking over the admin side from Karine and my Dad Nickomo, whom many of you probably know, will be leading at the conventions themselves. Thank you to Karine and Nick for producing such a wonderful event for all these years!

Places at the conventions will be filled on a first come, first served basis, so if you’d like to join in, we’ll need to know which date you’d like to attend, and whether you’d be able to come to the other date if your first choice is already full.  Please also let us know your guesstimate numbers so that we can allocate spaces for you. 

We’d like to hear from you by 19th October with your choir name(s) and 1st/2nd choice dates. We will let you know if your first choice is successful, and send you full booking details. We can then firm up the numbers by the end of choir terms in November/early December at the latest.

As most of you will know, St Georges has undergone a great deal of building work and this is reflected in their new hire fees.  Due to these and other costs, we are raising the price of a ticket to £15.  As usual, choir leaders get a free ticket.  You’ll be relieved to hear that we won’t need payment until the end of January, unless you want to pay earlier!!

We’d be grateful if you can please reply to this email even if you’re not able to attend next year, or you are no longer in a choir leader or admin role, then we can keep our records up to date. 

See attached a general information sheet about the convention and also a flier which you can circulate to your choir members.

We look forward to hearing back from you and welcoming you to St George’s in Spring 2019.

Best wishes,

Leela and Nickomo
