SUSSEX DAY AND THE LAUNCH OF THE CD
Our final workshops, at Worthing and Billingshurst, will soon be coming to a close and with them the South Downs Songs Project reaches its conclusion. It has been a great project from every possible perspective and we have been really overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and commitment of all of you who have taken part and made the workshops such a delight for us to teach!
To mark the end of the project and the release of the final CD - which will include all the best tracks from the six workshop groups - we will be a having a celebration day on Sunday June 16th - which happens also to be Sussex Day. YOU ARE ALL INVITED and I am writing to you now so that you can put the date in your dairies.
We will be meeting to sing and to celebrate at the Weald and Downland Museum at Singleton at 7pm on June 16th. The museum have said that we can use the gridshell, which, if you don't know it, is a marvelous modern and yet appropriate structure, just right for our songs. The museum will be holding Sussex DAy events throughout the day and we hope to have groups singing at various times.
I will send out more information and more details of timings and of events earlier in the day over the next few weeks, but the important thing is that you all have that date - Sunday 16th June. Could I also ask that, if you see other members of your workshop groups, that you mention this celebration day to them, as I am aware that many people still do not receive these mailings.
