Dates have now been added to the repertoire page. We are still investigating concerts prior to the mid 1990’s.
The AGM scheduled for the 9th September has been postponed. Rehearsals will begin on 16th September as planned. It is hoped to hold the AGM in early October. Notice will be sent out/handed out in the near future.
There is a problem which has, for some inexplicable reason happened all though our existence. That is changing of our name by various people, including members(?) when referring to us.
We are the Barclays House Choir (pronounced Barclays House(,) Choir) or acceptably the Barclays Choir
Barclays as in the Bank. Barclays House as in the big building in Poole Dorset.
We are not the Barclay House Choir or the Barclays(,) House Choir or the Barclay(,) House Choir.
The bank is not Barclay Bank, that was the old name for ATM machines. It is Barclays PLC not Barclay PLC.
The menu structure of the website has been updated to a nested format to allow for additional items.
A choir calendar has been added under the members menu item. This will carry dates mostly for members use but will also show concert and other dates.
Rehearsals will recommence on Tuesday 16th September, Baden Powell School 7:30pm.
The promised new website is now live. Apologies if you have tried to access the website over the past few days. Problems occurred with re-directing the website on Sunday night and it has taken a few days for our hosting company to investigate the problem and correct it. In the process some routes to the old website were lost thus removing service. I am waiting an explanation from the management as too what happened and why it took so long to fix.
Also added to the website are recordings from the past and copies of all programmes since Spring 2005. The secure area for members does not now exist. If there is a perceived need for this in the future it will be re-implemented.
The new website is written in WordPress and it is much easier to manage. This website was written in about 10 hours total, albeit using much of the text from the old, amended as required. Having never used WordPress before the steep learning curve which happened with the old Joomla site did not materialise.
Choir news will be distributed via this blog and also by twitter (@bhchoir). Watch this space for important announcements over the following few days/weeks.
