As the old year ends, I’d like to take this opportunity to say a few words about 2018.

The song I’ve chosen to represent the year is ‘We’re all in this together’ from High School Musical. This is particularly aimed at The West Bridgford Liberty Singers.

“Everyone is special in their own way
We make each other strong (make each other strong)
We’re not the same
We’re different in a good way
Together’s where we belong
We’re all in this together
Once we know that we are
We’re all stars
And we see that
We’re all in this together
And it shows when we stand hand in hand
Make our dreams come true
Make our dreams come true”

I feel that when we are a choir, together, we are all a team – that we feel as one. We can’t do it without each other I can’t do it without you, nor you me and the partnership WORKS!!! We do make each other strong, we are all stars and my dreams have come true.

Born on January 15th 2018, so far West Bridgford Liberty Singers have achieved:
22 rehearsals
4 Christmas gigs
1 charity afternoon tea
1 Prom in the Park
3 Gigs at the Test Match
We’ve been mentioned in 4 press articles, 2 radio interviews, 1 podcast and 3 TV appearances.

I feel that we’ve achieved not just a great level of singing – often above and beyond what I’d expected – but that we’ve found bits of hidden treasure in soloists and smaller ensembles. Confidence has grown, tea has been drunk and cake eaten. We’ve made friends and built a community that I am proud to call our own.

Looking forward into 2019 – what’s to come!? I have ideas, dreams and aspirations which include you all.

Happy New Year to you all xxxx
