Jean from Linwood

Hi Everyone,
We are enjoying the leadership of our new Music Director, Henry, a young man who joined us in February this year, and who is so easy to work with, and such a great asset to our choir. We recently performed our first concert with Henry, and have had very encouraging feedback from members of the audience on how much they enjoyed the concert.

But, it’s your turn now! How would you like to join our choir, the RISINGHOLME SINGERS, and be part of our “merry band of singers”. Yes, we are a very friendly bunch of people, where all new members are always made very welcome. We are a 4-part non-auditioned community choir of some 28 members, but would like to add to our little group. We are now working on our Christmas concert, and are enjoying every minute.

We are therefore now looking for new members, particularly Tenors, and although it is not essential to be able to read music (although it helps!), as long as you can sing in tune, you would be most welcome to join us, as you would soon learn the music from our very helpful Henry.

We perform two or three concerts a year, and our music mostly consists of well-known pieces from movies, shows, hit records, some classical, etc., all of which we really enjoy singing.

We rehearse in the lounge of the Opawa Baptist Church every Monday evening, from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m., with a short break in between.

If you would be interested in joining us, and would like to come along at the next Monday evening rehearsal, please feel free to do so.

If you have any questions, please contact our President, Jill Willmott, on 388 3235 or at risingholmesingers@gmail.com

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Ilam

"Kia ora – Jeremy Baars from New World Ilam here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Stoneleigh’s Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. It’s an excellent example of the Chardonnay style that customers are loving: rich, creamy and buttery, and full of stone fruit flavours. It goes well with dishes that have rich sauces like pasta or seafood and chicken. If Chardonnay isn’t your type, then give Lindauer Rosé a go – it’s a bottle of celebration and fun that’s good quality and at a great price.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
