Commitment to Gigs
I don’t want to end the year on a low point, because we have achieved a great deal!!
We have moved away from a company that was happy to ‘hoodwink’ it’s members.
We have established ourselves as a choir, a group of friends with a common goal, a family.
We have brought the joy of music to everyone who has heard us sing!
However, I have to say that I am left disappointed at the commitment to gigs over the Christmas period.
I am fully aware that Christmas becomes an incredibly busy time of year with a lot of commitments and time is a commodity that we are all short on, however, when I put out the original survey to ask about availability, these were the results:
Gig & Date
Marsh Mill – 25th Nov
British Legion – 4th Dec
Highfurlong – 8th Dec
RPH – 9th Dec
Said They Could
I have to say here, I am aware that when you completed the survey, no-one knew (not even me) that Tuesday 4th was a daytime gig that meant those of you out at work were unable to attend!!
From now on, I will be running the “gig booking” as follows:
We will get the enquiry to sing at an event, and as a result, I will create a tick sheet on the website. If you can make the event, tick the sheet. If you cannot make the event, leave it blank. If you are unsure, I would prefer to assume you cannot make it, this way if I end up with 20 ticks but 40 turn up, that’s a better scenario than the reverse.
If we don’t have enough participants for an event, I will decline the request to sing at the event.
I hope you understand.
With that having been said, lets do our best to make 2019 the best is can be for each of us, individually, and also for ShowChoir!
