Minutes

Minutes of recent committee meetings, AGMs and other Danesborough meetings are published here..
 
If minutes are marked draft, it’s because they have not yet been ratified and may be subject to corrections at a later date. Otherwise, minutes are in their final approved version.

 

In the minutes, the date of the next meeting is an intent; it may be rescheduled.

As a choir we aim to create a good image as well as a good sound. The following notes set out our concert dress.
 
Men
 

  • Black dinner jacket (for colder months)

  • Black trousers

  • Black open-neck shirt

  • Black shoes with black socks

  • Black cummerbund (if worn)

 
Women
 

  • Black skirt – full length, to ankle/top of foot; or smart black trousers, evening style.

  • Black top – long or ¾ length sleeves, but not short sleeves. An 'evening' top, i.e. something that feels dressed up or elegant. It doesn’t have to be a blouse with collar or buttons. Top may be worn tucked in or outside as an over-blouse or tunic. Please check your top is plain black, without coloured decoration or print, though black decoration, e.g. beading, is fine.

  • Instead of a skirt and top you may wear a black dress, full length (to ankle) with long or ¾ length sleeves. Black decoration is OK.

  • Black belt (if required) with unobtrusive buckle.

  • Black handbag – as small as possible.

  • Black shoes, black tights.

  • Jackets and shawls may only be worn off stage.

  • Jewellery should be minimal and unobtrusive.

If in doubt about what to wear, please check with the Membership Secretary.
 

Concert dress

 

Unable to sing?

If you're unable to sing in the next concert, you're asked not to attend the last three Wednesday evening rehearsals.

This enables Ian to get a feel for the balance of the concert choir well before the dress rehearsal.

Concert plans

The following spreadsheets are for members of the committee and marketing and publicity team.  They set out chronologically the tasks to be completed in the run-up to each concert and show who's responsible for each one.
