Following a successful concert in Marlborough, we will be performing in Devizes on Saturday at
St Andrew's Methodist/URC Church in Long Street, Devizes. There will be a rehearsal on Saturday afternoon at 2.00, finishing by 4.15. Devizes have retained the hall for us to use and change in if members cannot get home and back again in time for the evening performance.
We need to be at the church by 7.00pm and the concert starts at 7.30pm
There is little parking around the church area so please give yourself time to park.
Please return your music and folder at the end of the concert.

Our concert in Marlborough had an audience of 120. Our collection raised £289.94 for the Richard Iain Jauncey Sunflower Tribute Fund.
This fund was set up in memory of Richard Jauncey, a young man from Ramsbury who died as a result of epilepsy just weeks after another young man from the same village died from the same cause. All the money collected by the fund will go to the charity, Epilepsy Action. Find out more at richardiain.jauncey.muchloved.com and www.epilepsy.org.uk.


We start rehearsals on Monday, September 18th at 7.45pm and the AGM is on Monday, 9th October.

Details of the music and the concert will follow.

 

Useful resources


Cyberbass 

www.cyberbass.com provides a really useful resource. For a large number of works you can listen (for free) to the choral parts played with your part emphasised.


Concert Music on the Naxos Music Library

If you a member of Wiltshire libraries then you have free access to the Naxos Music Library - an online resource of many, many thousand CDs! There are almost certainly recordings available of pieces in our next concert to listen to online.
 
Access is simple:  
Go to http://wiltshire.naxosmusiclibrary.com/page.library_cardno.asp
Enter your library card number without the spaces - 9 999999 001 becomes 9999999001
Once logged on you can search for whatever takes your fancy


Concert Music on Spotify

If you aren't a member of Wiltshire Library then you could try http://www.spotify.com/ which provides free streaming of all sorts of music - you have the odd short advert but probably less than on commercial radio.

Once you've signed up and installed the client you can access all sorts of content.

If you do install the client I'd suggest you look at your Windows firewall settings. Access these via 'Control Panel', 'Windows Firewall', then open the exceptions tab and unclick the selection next to Spotify. That will stop Spotify accepting incoming network connections.
