    After many months of not being able to sing together, Basingstoke Ladies' Choir is back! September saw us with a new venue, new members, new songs and renewed enthusiasm! With Rob Elliot, our MD, at the helm we were gradually regaining our sound from before Lockdown. By December we were ready to take to the stage again for our first concert since December 2019. 
    Margaret French, Acting Chairman said,  "It was a truly fabulous afternoon and we are really pleased that our first concert fundraiser is helping the most vulnerable children in Basingstoke.  It was great to perform for our families and friends."
    We raised over £400 from a raffle and bucket collection which went to the Tesco, Caritas, Spotlight fund.
    Rob said, "The ladies have worked really hard since September with several new pieces which include Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah and Michael Jackson's Heal The World among more traditional seasonal songs.  I am  looking forward to what we can achieve at our summer concert on 18th June 2022."
    The choir has an Open Evening for prospective new members at 7.30 p.m. on 10th January 2022 at the Everest Community Academy.  New members are also very welcome on any Monday Evening. We meet in the Conference Room at Everest Community Academy, Oxford Way, RG24 9UP
