It's been a great year for the VOICES choirs in Pevensey and Eastbourne. Diana Terry has contacted me with an update on everything they've done and some exciting news about upcoming concerts too. The Eastbourne branch has just moved to Christ Church, Seaside where there are currently have over 30 singers. Plus there is now a third group too: Daytime VOICES. It is specifically for people who are unable to attend evening sessions. Daytime VOICES meets at Pevensey Bay Baptist Church every Thursday from 12.30-2.00.
DT: At our Summer concert, we raised an amazing £1200 split between MacMillan Cancer and Demelza Children's Hospice. We sang for Samaritans in the Arndale Centre to help with their collections, and also in the shop window at the opening of the new Scope shop in Eastbourne! And talk about versatile - we sang on a lorry trailer at Castlefest in Pevensey Bay!
A short time ago, we performed at Chalk Farm for the Mayors Charity Barbeque. He must have liked us as he has asked us to sing at the Winter Garden on 11th Dec at his Christmas function.
DT: November sees us singing for Juvenile Diabetes Charity and Children With Cancer.
Our highlight will be our own fundraising concert at Eastbourne Town Hall on December 13th, when all three branches of VOICES will come together in song. The Xmas concert has varied songs in the first half, and Christmas themed songs in the second half - NOT Xmas Carols!
Songs include I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, Dancing In The Street, Hero by Mariah Carey, Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher and many more. Xmas songs include Santa Baby! Winter Wonderland and White Christmas.
