NEXT MONTH'S EVENTS
Friday 2 October
Virtual Singers and Musicians Night
starts 8pm (Zoom entry from 7:30)
A chance to sing and play via Zoom, replacing our usual first-Friday-of-the-month singaround in the in the beautiful Barlow reading room during this Coronavirus season. This would have been the Festival weekend so expect something a bit special!
If you would like to join as a performer or as a member of the audience, please email Chris Nash on email@example.com and he will email you a link on Friday.
Much as we would like to be together, Zoom does have some merits : -
you can just join using audio rather than video if you like
you can join in to play and harmonise to your heart's content while muted
you can use a microphone, speakers, headphones, equaliser if you have these
you can use your own drink and catering facilities
you can have the words in front of you and no-one will know
you can put your chorus up on "chat" so that people can join in easily at home
you can take time out to feed the cats/wash up etc
you can wear your slippers
Seriously, it's great fun and good to see everyone happily making music. The quality of performance has been excellent, so if you haven't tried it yet, give it a go.
If you are performing, Chris has details he can send you about how to make the most of your sound.
In the hope that 2021 proves to be a "normal" year, here is our schedule of third-Friday-in-the-month concerts. This list is subject to alteration at this stage. Click website or photo for links.
