Christmas Events

York Musical Theatre Company

Following the discussion at the General Meeting and the proposal from Chris Hagyard to the Annual General Meeting we are pleased to announce that weekly society rehearsals will commence on Monday, 15th October, 2012 @ 7.30pm at New Earswick School.

Jessa will take these rehearsals and our first task will be to refresh some Christmas music and learn some new pieces to contribute to the various Christmas Events we have planned.

Your support is needed and I hope we will see as many of you as we can at the first rehearsal.
