2017 EMFS events
Summer Choir Plans
EMFS choir plans for the Summer term are as follows:
The Intermediate Choir will look at John Dowland and English Part-songs
The Advanced Choir Will sing Italian Madrigals including Monteverdi
June 17th - St Michael and All Saints
As before, the Advanced choir (moving at a reasonably fast pace) meets from 10.00 to 12.50, with a short break; the more leisurely paced Intermediate choir meets from 13.45 to 16.30, also with a break. Advanced choir members are welcome to stay and join the Intermediate choir in the afternoon and make a full day of it. Both choirs are led by Philip Redfern and meet in St Michael’s and All Saints church at Tollcross in Edinburgh.
We still have space for more singers, so if you are interested and are not already on the choir email list, please email me with your contact info, your voice part and which choir(s) you wish to sing with. The fee for a single half-day session is £12 for EMFS members, £15 for non-members, and £5 for students and those on low incomes. A reduced full-day rate of £20 / £25 / £8 will apply this session to any advanced choir singers who wish to join the intermediate choir in the afternoon.
You can pay (i) by BACS (ref EMFS choir workshop), or (ii) paying by cheque on the day - but please confirm by email that you are attending. Please make cheques payable to EMFS. No cash payments will be accepted.
**If you are paying by BACS, please email me for details, and cc Kate to let us know that you have paid.**
The usual venue is:
St Michael and All Saints Church, Brougham St.,Edinburgh EH3 9JH
Mid-morning and mid-afternoon refreshments will be provided, but if you are attending both sessions, please bring a packed lunch or be prepared to eat at a nearby cafe.
I will be sending pdf copies to you as soon as Philip is able to provide them.
*Please also let me know if you need printed copies on the day*. We are hoping to keep costs down by inviting choir members to print their own music, but we are happy to print it for you if you need us to.
Please email me if you need information about parking near the venue.
Hope to see you there!
