So we are delighted to introduce to you, Mr & Mrs Thorn
The wedding was perfect, the love and happiness was so strong in the room that you could feel it. Jo looked stunning and Steve wore a permanent grin along with the dapper suit!
They were surrounded by special people who were all overjoyed to share the celebrations with them.
The traditional ‘first dance’ of a wedding was actually replaced with a lovely jazz duo of ‘Night and Day’ of Ella Fitzgerald fame which had the bride and groom gazing into each others eyes while they sang to each other for our entertainment. The 3 tier wedding cake was covered in musical score and notes…… and was delicious.
It would not of been complete had the chorus not had a song or two which Jo really enjoyed; “I cant believe I’ve directed in my dress!” was said at the end of “Can’t take my eyes off of you” and “Happy Together” – two very apt songs for the day of course.
We wish them every happiness for the future.
On Saturday 2nd December we welcomed almost 200 people over 2 performances of ‘The Christmas Memory Tree’ which featured our very own Junior FR, it was a heart-warming story of family time at Christmas, full of love, sparkle and happiness. Fascinating Rhythm were sprinkled in amongst scenes to add a musical feel to the production.
St Mary’s Church in Yate looked rather festive and beautiful. We were able to provide our guests with mince pies during the interval and with our raffle we raised a good amount of almost £300 for our charity ‘Winston’s Wish’ to help with funding for their helpline and providing face to face for grieving families.
Thank you everyone, we hope you enjoyed our Christmas Memory Tree story
Here are a few pictures of the performance …. it does show what fun we had!
We were delighted to have another weekend coaching session with the inspirational and enthusiastic (and very funny) Sally McLean during September.
Another 2 day session where Fascinating Rhythm were well and truly put through our emotional ringers as well as technically enhancing our Convention package. We so enjoy our visits from Sally and look forward to them almost as soon as she has left the building…. despite being exhausted. Our MD, Jo, also grows with advice given to her and her treatment of the chorus (although the big stick did not come out during this visit!)
We very much look forward to seeing and hearing Sally’s chorus (The White Rosettes) amongst all other competitors at Convention in Bournemouth at the end of October. It is sure to be a great European Convention this year!
