It’s time to film our introduction/welcome video for the ICONS concert - and I am now looking for volunteers to star in this.
I need between 10-25 volunteers - the more the merrier
My idea is that everybody will read the same script - and we can then cut the lines together so every person will have their own line in the video - think airline safety video, think Nothing Compares To You music video - that style! The look I am going for is something like this below - it will tie in nicely with the ICONS concept.
Don’t be afraid of failing this - we really want AS MANY as possible from the choir to showcase on the big screen - we will be doing the filming at rehearsals and we can take and re-take as many times as we need - and finally - we’ll only use your the bits recorded. That’s the beauty of this concept.
The script we’d be asking you to read, is as follows:
Many of you have asked, "how is it going with ticket sales?". As of today, status is; we've come off to a good start - but could use a bit of a push.
As you can see we've sold 582 tickets over both days so far - St George's have a total of 590 seats - so we've sold the hall completely out - but only once. We need to sell twice this number of tickets to have two sellout nights, so please do all you can to push sales for Friday. It would be a shame to perform for a half full St George's.
Remember - you can still buy tickets from me at Tuesdays rehearsals. I have 121 left for Friday across all ticket bands, and only 44 seats left for Saturday (mainly balcony seats).
|Hello Everyone. |
The Committee have decided that we would like to choose a charity of the year.
The chosen charity would receive a percentage donation of the profits we make at our concert this year.
How will we decide?
We would like to receive nominations from choir members for local charities they would like us to support. To make this process as easy as possible please follow the following guidance.

|If you were at Pride, recently, you may be aware of the Bristol Trans Pledge, in support of the trans members of our community. After consulting the trans members of the choir, Sing Out Bristol is proud to support this pedge as a choir, on our social media pages and we invite our members and followers to do the same.|
From the Trans Pledge website:
In the past few months trans people have come under increasing attack in the media. So much so that the International Lesbian & Gay Association has downgraded the UK in its annual Rainbow Europe rankings.
We believe that Trans People have the right to be treated equally. This includes:
We will be asking the people of Bristol to support this pledge via social media in the run-up to Pride.

It's been an amazing 2017 for the choir.
We performed 10 times, more than any other year, and increased our members' social events to one a month.
We end 2017 with 141 paying members and another 9 newbies who are in the process of deciding whether to join.
2018 will be even bigger and better. Thank you for supporting us in 2017 and we look forward to seeing you again in our 10th Anniversary year.
Watch this space!
But before that, watch this video: our highlights from 2017.
