Welcome back for the new season 2016/17

In case you hadn’t seen the tweets and facebook messages, our first rehearsal for the 2016/17 season is only a few hours away.  Hopefully you will have found some time over the last few weeks to get all those scores in order and maybe even get some practise in.  We have lots of things in the pipeline for this coming year so please do keep an eye on the website or other social media for important bulletinns like – weekly subs to be held at £2 (they were temporarily reduced by 33% at the last AGM until the summer).

Look forward to seeing you all (I know some of you are still on your travels) tonight (Thursday 8th) and getting back into singing mode!.



Spring Sing! Warm Up

Sing! Bentley Heath Spring Sing! Rehearsals 2016

Studiously rehearsing for Spring Sing 2016

With only a few weeks to go, the choir have been very busy rehearsing for what should be another great Spring Sing! Jane, the MD,  is very pleased with progress and the sound the choir and band are producing especially now that everyone is in their new concert positions.  “it is sometimes easy for the singers to loose track of how their individual parts are important or effect the whole song – only I (jane) and the audience get to hear the complete effect”.  The following clip was recorded some weeks ago at a rehearsal to give the singers vital feedback on their performance.

Thanks to the kind sponsorship of the choir by Paul Brady from St James’s Place Wealth Management, all the costs for the concert will be met by the choir so all ticket money, collections etc. will go to Age UK (Solihull) and Heartlands Hospital Ward 19.   These are both local charities that work within our community and who have supported members of our choir.  Tickets for this years concert have been selling well so if you haven’t already got yours then please buy one soon to avoid disappointment!




A storming end to the Christmas concert season

Friends & Family 2015

What an amazing concert on Thursday and a great way to end the year for the choir.  It was a pleasure to hand the cheque for £1,800 to Lynne from the MND Association which was half the money raised last year.  The choir sounded great as you can tell from these two recordings.

Thanks to everyone’s hard work, the Christmas concerts have raised a total of £740 which brings our current charity fund total to £970.  What a fantastic way to end our year and a great way to help this year’s charities – Ward 19 at Heartlands hospital and Age UK.

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year
