We Are Back

We are pleased to announce that rehearsals will be starting again on Wednesday 29th September at the usual time of 6.30pm here at The Laura Centre. It has been a long time coming but at last, we can start excercising our lungs again. We even have our first booking on November 28th at The Laura Centre ‘At Home’ event.

If you are interested in joining us give Tony a call on 07813 536315 just so we have an idea of numbers. The first couple of weeks are free just to see if you enjoy it with the cost being just £3 per week after that. All music is provided with rehearsal tracks usually being available on download.

Latest Situation re COVID

With the latest announcement from the government we will not have time to start again before the summer break. With this in mind it has been decided that choir rehearsals will not start again until September/October. An exact start date will be announced later.

Thank you to all the members and prospective members for their patience. See you later.

Coronavirus Update (Jan 2021)

Sad to say that we are still in the same position as when we last posted. Although we can now look forward to a vaccine we are still a long way from being able to restart the choir. Current choir members can keep up to date via the WhatsApp group. For prospective members, we can only recommend that you monitor this site. If you would like to join when we do restart you can register your interest via our contact page.

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by this terrible virus and our thanks go to all NHS, front line and key workers.

Stay safe.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus it is, with regret, that we are postponing choir rehearsals until further notice. Existing choir member will be updated via the WhatsApp group. Others should monitor this page where will post updates as and when we get them.

This is a sad situation for all and our good wishes go out toa ll affected by this terrible situation.

New Season starting

In full voice

We will be starting our new season on Wednesday 15th January 2020. We rehearse every Wednesday (well, most Wednesdays) here at The Laura Centre, 4-6 Tower Street, Leicester LE1 6WS from 6.30pm ’til 8.00pm and we are always on the lookout for new members. The first couple of weeks are free (just to see if you like it) and then it is just £3 per week (payable for the term). As we are a community choir all are welcome and there are no auditions. You just turn up and sing. Singing is good for you physically, mentally and socially so what are you waiting for. Come along and give it a try.

New Season dates

This year TLC Voices will be returning a little earlier than usual. The first rehearsal will be on August 21st at the usual time of 6.30 here at Tower Street. This will be followed by a second rehearsal on the 28th but there will then be a gap of one week (4 Sept). Rehearsals will then recommence on Sept 11th.

New members are more than welcome and we have some nice ‘gigs’ planned. We will be singing at 2 or 3 care homes as well as a Christmas Tree Festival, The Laura Centre At Hom,e event and the sunrise walk in September.

#If you are interested you can either just turn up or give me a call first on 07813 536315.

backing tracks and other music

Hi folks. Sorry but I could not record the parts yesterday as something cropped up so we will do it at the Wednesday rehearsal. Apart from continuing to learn the new ones we will also be looking at the back-catalogue and refreshing some of them. Can you make sure you bring your music for the following:
Down to the river top pray
Time after time
Stand by me
Fix You
You ar not alone
Sound of music
We won’t be doing all of these tomorrow night but please have them with you. I will sort out copies for those of you that have not done these before. See you all tomorrow.

Tony

Wonderwall

Hi

I have just uploaded the recording and lyrics for Wonderwall. Please go to the download page.

Christmas Concert

Hi

Sadly the Saturday night concert (Deb 8th) has been cancelled. All I know is that it was beyond their control. the Sunday afternoon goes ahead as per the original plan. You may need to be available for the Saturday at some point for a sound check. I will hopefully find out for this Wednesday.

This Sunday (25th Nov) you will need to be here at TLC from about 1.15 for a run through in the annexe. We will do two sets of about 20 minutes or so. These will probably be at 2pm and 2.45pm but this will be flexible.

Christmas reminder

Hi All

I know it seems a way off but Christmas is fast approaching so I thought I would confirm what performances we have planned. I will mark these on the calendar as well.

Sunday, November 25th – The ‘At Home’ event here at The Laura Centre. As far as I know, it will run from 2 until 4 and we will sing two sets. The songs will mostly be from last year but we will also include Christmas Lullaby and Fields of Gold.

Saturday 8th December (evening) – Guest Choir at Musical Village Christmas concert. NB although this is an evening performance we will need to be there in the afternoon for a rehearsal. The time has not been confirmed yet but I would expect it to be from about 3pm

Sunday 9th December (afternoon) – This is a repeat of the Saturday concert.

I am expecting us to sing 3 or 4 songs on our own and then we will be joining in with Musical Village for a couple of numbers.

I am also trying to arrange a Christmas visit to South Lodge. This usually has to be on a Sunday afternoon but I will confirm date and time once I have spoken with them.
