More than ‘Just a thought …!’
After such sad and tragic national news, yet again, over the weekend, it is difficult to know what to do, what to say or how to react other than to ‘stay strong and stand together’. We can, at least, ‘stand together’ at Wednesday’s rehearsal for a short period of reflection before then singing our hearts out – a fitting way to remember all of those caught up in the London terror attack.
A quote …!
“Music gives a
soul to the universe,
wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination
and life to everything.” (Plato)
Without further ado, the Notices, please read on …!
