As we say goodbye to 2015 and hello to the New Year we’ve been recalling all the wonderful things Spinnaker Chorus has been involved in over the past twelve months. Wow, what an awesome year it has been including wonderful sessions with truly inspirational coaches, fun and madness at our annual retreat (as well as hard work!), taking 5th place and breaking through the 600 point barrier at SAI Convention in May, coming 1st and 2nd in two categories at BCMF and 3rd place at NWCF in LLandudno, then the excitement of appearing on TV in Gareth Malone’s Naked Choir.
We have also welcomed some fabulous new ladies to our Spinnaker family who will enhance our chorus greatly and we hope they will enjoy their experiences being a part of our fabulous choir.
We are sadly seeing our amazing Jenny Savory stand down as our MD after nearly 5 years. Jenny has been such a fantastic leader, working so hard to get us to where we are today. Her personality is so infectious and her love of barbershop so evident in everything she does. She has been endlessly inspirational, encouraging and motivational, making our rehearsals and performances such fun and immensely enjoyable. Thankfully though Jenny is staying with us as a singing Spinnakerette and we are currently all fighting to have her in our sections!
So 2016 will bring us a new Musical Director and new experiences, hard work and challenges but a huge amount of joy and laughter because that is what we are all about. Spinnaker Chorus are onward and upward keep watching for further updates.
Here is a brilliant video of memories from 2015 which Jenny put together, we hope you enjoy it. HAPPY NEW YEAR xxxx
