I have been approached by Lesia Smaditch. She leads 3 choirs in Leicester she is based in Leicester Forest East and this is her profession. Her Website www.musicalvillage.co.uk gives somebackground with a link to a Facebook page with photos of various events.
Lesia makes a living doing this so we would need to increase our subs to about £4 a night each and I think Lesia would hope to increase numbers.
For this Lesia would also supply accompanyment she normally works to backing tracks. She would also give us music to take away to learn so our practises could concentrate on performance rather than notes
She says her existing choirs work towards 2 concerts a year and they have performed at some pretty big events in Leicester winning a choir competition that enabled them to perform at a reasonably significant concert
Choir night would have to change to Wednesday. That is the only free night she has.
I said I would inform the rest of the Choir and we would talk about it on Thursday and let her know within a week.
What do you all think Ian
