News Update

Tickets are now on sale for the first 2018 concert on Saturday 17th February in Baltonsborough Village Hall - see 2018 Concert Diary for more.

The new year started on Monday 8th January as we gathered for our first 2018 rehearsal. We were delighted to welcome two new members and expect a third soon.

Conductor Jennifer Westcott has chosen a song list for performance at our first 2018 concert, when we return after a substantial gap to the local Baltonsborough Village Hall on Saturday 17th February in a concert which will start at 7.30pm in aid of Baltonsborough Community Association. New songs which will probably be sung here for the first time will be: The upbeat Trolley Song from the American musical 'Meet me in St Louis', a male voice choir arrangement of the well-known Beatles song 'Yesterday' and the signature song from the 1964 musical 'Hello Dolly' made famous by Old Sachmo / Louis Armstrong in his 1969 hit song version we all remember. Our arrangement for male voice choir is proving popular to learn, and we hope it is enjoyable to listen to!

We continue to welcome new members. Email our Conductor Jennifer Westcott on jennifermmsing@yahoo.co.uk to find out more.

2018 Dinner

Andrew Look is again organising the annual dinner which returns to Long Sutton Golf Club on Friday 23rd March at 6.30 for 7pm. Members are asked to give Andrew their menu choices and pay the £25 per person for the meal as soon as possible.

Geoff Gingell is organising the cabaret this year and invites individuals and groups who want to perform to contact him soonest so he can draw up another entertaining programme after dinner.

Matters arising from 2017....

Souvenir Journal
There are still some spare copies of the 40 page, A4, full colour
Souvenir Journal to celebrate the First Ten Years of the Brue Boys

- these are available at £10 each from Treasurer Roger White.
We will donate all profits to our local good causes
and the project is already in profit of about £100.

New Piano
Hilde Senior enjoyed playing the new piano in several late 2017 rehearsals
- the quality of the sound makes a huge difference and Hilde looks forward to its first outing on 17th February during the Baltonsborough Concert.
