Consideration for committee nominations

Whilst the chair and committee are delighted to receive nominations for the committee from anyone in New Mills and District U3A, they would particularly welcome nominations from any men in our U3A.  Both sexes are well represented in our organisation but there is, however, a significant imbalance in the make-up of our committee and we would like to address this.

SINGING FOR FUN

eg

Have you ever listened to groups or choirs singing in harmony, and wished that you could do that?

Well, the good news is that you can!  Even if you don't think you can, YOU CAN!! Once a month the  U3A 'Singing for Fun' group meets for a two hour session for 'acapella' singing. That involves unaccompanied singing in three or occasionally four part harmony.

You don't have to be able to read music, because there is none to read! You just have to listen to our inspirational leader, Rose Hodgson, and to the other members of your section, then it's amazing how you can pick up your part.

We usually learn at least one new song each session, as well as revisiting  previous ones. The songs are from a wide range of styles, with ethnic and folk music, and popular music ranging from the Everly  Brothers to Cole Porter!

You can listen to a recording of us at the Groups Display morning on September 18th.
