Event: Summer 2012 (Our summer Away-day)
Saturday 7th July 2012 at 9:00am, Bury St Edmunds
As established choir members will know, we organise an Away-day in the summer each year - except when we do an overseas tour, eg our summer 2011 tour to Brussels. These Away-days are very popular and provide a really welcome opportunity for choir members to spend a relaxing day in each other's company, away from the usual surroundings of Harrow. It helps us to get to know each other better, particularly for newer members, and it is both educational and enjoyable for us to sing in different places, usually with a smaller number of singers than we are used to. There is of course a very strong social element as well involving various non-strenuous activities, the odd visit to the pub, and a full meal together.
This year we will be going by coach to the beautiful town of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. The main focus of the day will be the singing and we have been invited to perform choral evensong in the Cathedral in the early evening together with a short afternoon recital. This will make a very nice change from our usual Away-day format of an early afternoon meal followed by an evening concert. It will also give us the chance for some relaxed après-concert, including eating together in the evening before boarding the coach back to Harrow.
Further details will be posted here as the organisation progresses.
