A September of Singing!

Well it’s take me a while to get around to this, but what a September we had!
The 17th was Sunshine! at St Anne’s Parish Centre in Ormskirk. You can read a full review of the event here, including the later Henshaw’s performance!
On 21st we held our second AGM, this time at the local Martin Inn. Mick the proprietor put on a fantastic spread for us, a sit down three course meal and coffee. Sarah gave the Annual Report, with thanks given to outgoing and incoming trustees, fortunately whom were the same people! Jan delivered the fairly healthy financial report, and the evening quickly descended into karaoke mayhem, thanks to the generosity of Mark Jordan bringing all his gear! Shaun’s rendition of Wuthering Heights brought many to tears, but mostly of laughter (and shock!) The choir agreed that this was now a new favourite venue, and added it to our list of places to ‘have to come here again’!
The 25th September saw a first- the Bandstand Marathon, a nationwide event held simultaneously at hundreds of different bandstands. A mix up over dates when the rangers were away meant we had no chairs for people to sit on, but we still had a reasonable number of people brave the chilly September air to hear a (slightly hung-over) choir perform songs from our recent gig and from past sets. It was a real pleasure to be out and about in the community, and a lot of fun to sing at a bandstand, so we immediately pledged a repeat performance in 2012. You can read more information about that future event here. The nationwide organisers subsequently decided to make ReSound a featured performer- you can read that interview here!
To round off an already packed September, on 30th a group of choir members set off on the first ever Weekend Away, to Tyn-y-Nant near Pwllheli in North Wales. You can read all about it here!
