Royal Homes Wimbledon
Recently the chorus performed at Queen
Alexandra's Court in Wimbledon for widows and
wives of ex service officers and ex service
women. The event took place in June sunshine
at the annual garden party, with Magna Carta
alternating with a military brass band.
Come and Sing Course
Magna Carta last year ran a five-week course
for those interested in learning to sing
4-part-harmony. Ten people took part in the
course which involved learning about
breathing and posture etc. and two songs were
learnt (also new to existing MC members).
Half of those who participated seem to have
enjoyed the project enough to become members
of the chorus and they are very welcome
indeed. The new songs are King of the
Road and Dylan's To Make You Feel My
A Visit To Hampton Court
In November 2015 we visited Hampton Court
where we took part in its 500 year
celebration. Apart from singing selections
from our repertoire we joined with several
other choruses to sing a specially composed
song for the occasion.
A Visit to Wembley Stadium
In February 2016 we visited Wembley Stadium
for an exciting behind the scenes tour. We
sang the "polecat" songs in a dozen different
locations including the English Dressing Room
and the Royal Box.
