Chorus AGM 2017

Wayfarers Chorus AGM

 

 

 

 

 

On Tuesday 31 October we held our 2017 AGM, which was well attended.  For those who were unable to attend, a few of the more interesting points are below:

  • During the year we donated £3,500 to charity (£2,500 to Queenscourt Hospice and £1,000 to the Soup Kitchen)
  • Including our April concert, Wayfarers Chorus and Men In Black performed on 24 occasions, raising in the region of £3,800 for our charity fund
  • Agreement was reached that we should start our practices at 7:30pm prompt to make the most of our time
  • Mention was made of the fact our Afterglows have ‘faded away’. Let’s try to get these going again and if anybody knows any tags let’s hear them
  • There was a lengthy discussion about recruitment and it was generally agreed that the only really successful tactic was the ‘Learn To Sing’ course.  A small working party will put together a proposal for such a course, to start in Spring 2018.  It was noted that of the members present, about 14 had joined as a result of the previous course
  • Roger Fieldhouse was nominated as President for the coming year
  • Ian Homewood was voted ‘Barbershopper of the Year’
