I know it’s autumn but it felt like spring at the Rye Scout Centre on Tuesday, September 7, as the Music Well’s singing group met together in numbers for the first time since March last year.
The room is large and well ventilated with doors and windows wide open and the singing was immense. The sounds of “We are bound to South Australia” made spring seem more realistic – as antipodeans are jumping into that season. Everyone is welcome to join and new members, I am sure, will enjoy the warm experience.
Younger singers are about to meet again face to face at the Rye Creative Centre where Marian Ham will be starting the Music Well’s free after school club for primary children on Monday afternoons beginning on September 20. This has been enabled with generous funding from the Fairlight Arts Trust.
The Music Well is honoured to be the chosen good cause of the Rye International Jazz and Blues Festival and as such the directors and volunteers were able to collect donations at their outdoor concerts at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea. The generosity of the audience meant that almost £3,000 was collected from the five concerts.
There is definitely lots to sing about even though it is autumn!
