Calling all Instrumentalists
After Covid prevented the event from happening last year, it will be great to be able to have our Village Carol Service back again this year, organised as ever by Churches Together in Haddenham.
It has been a tradition for us to assemble as many instrumentalists as possible to form a 'motley band' to accompany the carols at this event, so we do hope to attract a willing and capable group to come and play this year: on Friday 10th December, 7pm in the village hall.
Please highlight this plea to other Haddenham or local musicians who might also like to join in. It would also be really good to be able to include any proficient students if they can be encouraged to take part? We suggest that musicians need to be of around Grade 5+ standard as we do not have prior rehearsals, just a play-in from 6.15pm on the evening concerned.
We will follow the usual format — rehearse in the village hall from 6.15pm on the day, using Kaleidoscope arrangements or sheet music, and play everyone in until the service starts at 7pm.
Please remember to bring a music stand with you!
Please let Alison Green know if you can join in.
