The festive sing out season has well and truly begun for us here at More Harmony, with three performances already under our belt and many more to go!

On Saturday 18th November, we had an exceptionally busy start to our Christmas schedule, starting with a performance at the beautiful St. Petroc's Church in Bodmin, where they were holding a Christmas fair.  We've been lucky enough to sing at the church before and it really is a lovely setting.  After a half hour set, we barely had time to straighten our scarves before we were off to the stunning Pencarrow House, to give two more half hour performances!  This time, we were singing outdoors, so our gorgeous - and much commented on - purple Christmas capes had their first outing of the season.  

Between sets, we had the opportunity to browse Pencarrow's annual Artisan Christmas Fair and try some of the wonderful food and drink stalls.  More Harmony have always been a close bunch and it was really lovely to enjoy a bit of time together, sipping coffee and putting the world to rights!  There was even some chatter about what songs to include in 2024's repertoire, and with our music team meeting fast approaching, we'll have some updates on what was chosen very soon!

During our final set, the rain began to pour, so we cut a song and made a slightly early exit - we have too many upcoming performances to lose anyone to illness, after all!  Still, we had a great time at both events and would like to thank the organisers for inviting us and making us so welcome.

Our remaining performance dates can be found right here on this page, so if you're looking to get into the festive spirit, why not pop along to one of these events and check us out?!  This time of year is really special to us and we hugely enjoy sprinkling a little extra Christmas magic for everyone listening.  Believe it or not, it's never too early to be thinking about Christmas 2024, so if you're hosting an event next year and you're looking for musical entertainment, drop us a line and we'll put you in the diary!  You'd be amazed how quickly it fills up...

With just three rehearsals left until we break up for our Christmas social and festive break, there's not long left to get your foot in the door, this year.  We are, however, always open to new singers, so if you're looking for a fun hobby and a great way to make new friends, do feel free to drop into a rehearsal between now and December 7th (our last rehearsal of the year) and see what a cappella singing is all about.  We can promise you a very warm welcome and a cuppa - we may even throw in a biscuit to sweeten the deal!

We'll be back with more news next month, but until then, we very much hope to see some of you at our upcoming sing outs!
