Letter from the Chairman

         “I’m John Fenlon, and I’ve been Chairman of the Leamington Bach Choir for some 18 months or so. My background is in mathematical statistics, and although formally retired I still dabble a bit in the magic arts! I got into choral singing at school through a charismatic music teacher, which led on to the Birmingham Grammar Schools Choir Festival in the early 1960s. Thereafter I was hooked, and sang with both Manchester and Reading University Choirs, The High Wycombe Choral Society, Warwick & Kenilworth (some 35 years ago!), Arun Choral Society and Worthing Festival Choir before landing back in Warwick some 20 years ago, and being dragged along to the Bach Choir by a colleague. It has been a pleasure to sing with the Bach Choir for the last twenty years, and now to contribute to its continuing good fortunes as Chairman. As an auditioned group of singers we embrace the classical repertoire but also test ourselves with more contemporary and challenging pieces. A particular pleasure over the past two or three years has been the influx of several younger members who add considerably to the zest and friendliness of the Choir.”

Hi Everyone –

Another really positive rehearsal tonight, but as Colin says, we will need to put the hours in at home too!

This is a great recording by the Vasari Singers, available on a free music streaming site called Spotify.  Click the link below to access it.

Will Todd – ‘In the Mood’

You will need to register for a free account, like you would for Amazon etc., but this is very quick and simple.

Happy singing!

P.s. if you don’t want to hear the adverts then you will need to pay a small membership fee – I can highly recommend investing in Spotify – I’ve been a paid up member for the last 4 years and for less than the price of one CD per month you are able to legally access a huge amount of music on line.

 

One of the RLSBC basses has just pointed out that these extremely helpful midi files are also available.

Very useful voice part recordings (like cyberbass) just click here:
