What a wonderful day we had on Sunday 11th June! The rehearsals in the fabulous Manchester town hall with so many singers from choirs across the North of England and Wales. Jules Gibb and Janet Russell got us all up to scratch and the sun shone.

I counted 37 Secret Singers who took part although the photos don’t show quite everybody. It was lovely to contact between the classes again and all 4 were represented.

For me the highlight was singing ‘Love Flows Like a River’ to the Bride and Groom who had just got married inside whilst we we were having our sound check outside. What a bonus for them and a fabulous wedding picture with the massed choir behind them!! The chap  doing the video of us is apparently going to put it on the website singforwaternorth.wordpress.com – at some point.

Learning the songs together in our classes was fun, coming together into the massed choir was a brand new adventure for a good number of the group and a great day out for all of us; but also Secret Singers, by their donations just this year, have given clean, safe water and sanitation to 43 people- FOR LIFE and SfWN has in total raised over £10,000 for Water Aid. so well done Secret Singers- let’s go again next year shall we?
