Singing Saturdays are evolving in 2019
It’s a new year and what does that mean??
A fresh season of MusicSmart Singing Saturdays!!
At some past events, we have had waiting lists and some of our singers have been disappointed at not being able to attend…so, after putting our heads together we’ve decided to double up on the number of these super fun singing days!
How’s that for good news for you all to start off 2019!
To start the year, we’re having two dates for “Musicals 3” as well as two days for “Sixties”. Date 1 and date 2 for Musicals will be the same as one another, so that nobody misses out, date 1 and date 2 for the Swinging Sixties will be the same as one another.
When booking your place, please be sure you select the correct date for your event, we’d hate for you to be disappointed if your booking is for a date you cannot attend.
!Bookings are now open!
We cannot wait, the songs we have selected are going to be so much fun.
Here’s to 2019 and singing our hearts out
Please add our firstname.lastname@example.org address to your email address book so that our confirmation messages are not sent to your junk/spam folders. If you have already already booked and have not received your confirmation mail, please do check these folders.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Wishing all our singers a VERY Merry Christmas! Thank you all for a great year of wonderful singing and we are already planning more concerts and fun for 2019!
Best wishes, Hilary and Paula
Final Singing Saturdays for 2018…
…and it was FANTASTIC!
2018 is nearly done, but first, we must take a minute to revel in the excellence that was our final Singing Saturdays event of this year.
Our theme was “Music from the Movies”…this was the second showing of this particular theme, a popular choice among our singers it seems!
We sang some big songs, lets just be honest, it was tiring, but…the bigger the song, the harder you all tried and it really paid off, you all sounded AMAZING!
Thank you all for a FABULOUS day!

Who doesn’t love music from the Swinging Sixties?
This past weekend saw us at MusicSmart host another fantastic Singing Saturdays event…We Couldn’t help falling in love with Elvis, “Wah-wah-wah-wondered” along with Del Shannon and We were there, reaching out with an action-packed, MusicSmart version of The Four Tops’ popular, 1966, Motown song on our Swinging Sixties day.
Along with our band, Paula’s excellent playing and Hilary’s brilliant direction, we all sang and grooved to some old favourites as well as some lesser know sixties songs. There were harmonies that blew us away and a few challenging corners, which you all rounded superbly…creating a genuinely fab sound. Thank you all!
We’ll see you all again on December 1st, for our “Songs from Films”…same time, same place, same tasty tea and cakes!
