We’re really excited to be performing at the Crewe Cosmopolitan Food Festival on 28th October 2018. With the nights drawing in, pumpkins swelling to full size and the damp Autumn mist lingering in the cool air, there’s nothing better than throwing on your wellies and scarf, kicking up the leaves, eating hearty warm meals whilst preparing for Hallowe’en.
We’re rehearsing some brand new spooky song repertoire for your listening pleasure and, owing to the season – it’s highly likely that we might be dressed in costume as well…
We’ll be singing in the Pumpkin Parade at 1pm on Sunday afternoon. Please head down and join us – not only to support us, but to enjoy entertainment from all the children who have been involved making masks that they will wear to scare away the Hallowe’en ghouls!
There will be plenty of entertainment and delicious food to enjoy all day long, so stay local and join us at Crewe Cosmopolitan Food Festival for a fantastic day of frolics, frights and tasty bites… mwahahaha!
In June, we enjoyed another fantastic headline concert in Adderley, to raise money for their Village Hall. We performed a variety of our favourite songs and included some of our newer repertoire too – including singing Billy Joel’s “The Longest Time” in 6-part harmony: That’s a super impressive feat for a non-audition choir!
We worked really hard on our concert repertoire and Phil & Carol worked really hard to set up a fabulous stage and lighting rig for us. The room was flooded with purple and the audience were wowed with amazing performances not just from us – but from our super guests too.
There was plenty of joining in, clapping along and laughter. The bar was open and the atmosphere was amazing. After the show, Phil opened the stage to the audience and we enjoyed an evening in karaoke together! A really huge thank you to Phil and Carol for inviting us along to sing and organising a truly fabulous evening, to all our guests who performed, to all the choir for working so hard and putting so much energy into their performance and to our super audience for joining in, cheering and laughing at my bad jokes.
We’re very much looking forward to sing for all the friendly folk in Adderley again sometime soon. Thanks for having us!
A huge thanks to Gosia in our Alto section for inviting MicWire to be a part of her fundraising efforts for Wild Hearts Charity, via the Micro Tyco Campaign.
Leading up to the event, there were many unforeseen obstacles to overcome in order to bring the night into successful fruition. However, lucky for us and lucky for the charity, absolutely nothing can get in the way of Gosia’s awesome tenacity.
Suffice to say, the hurdles were probably a great way to boost the teams’ acquaintance with the fine art of entrepreneurial spirit and making money, which as I understand it, is part of the purpose of the Micro Tyco project.
Together, MicWire sang every single song that we know – most of the songs we have performed at events before, but some of the songs were a treat for everyone there – performed as a MicWire premiere!
Our audience were fantastic, super-duper generous and really supportive to the cause. Many of the choir performed solo pieces to wow the crowds and our lovely guests shared a multitude of vocal talent too.
There was a really long raffle and plenty of tea and cake for all of the audience in the interval, and the feedback from everyone who came to watch was really great.
In total, we made £362 on the night for Gosia, thus boosting the Barclays Apprentices’ total to a huge £841 which will be donated to Wild Hearts.
A huge congratulations to all the Barclays’ Apprentices, a great big round of applause to everyone who came along to perform on the night and a whopping great thank you to all of our audience for coming along to support us.
Together, we brought together a community, shared great music and raised money for a really good cause. Let’s do it again soon!
MicWire are thrilled to have been invited to sing on 24th March 2018 for such a great cause.
This will be our first concert where the choir are the headline act, so it is very exciting for all of us. This Micro Tyco Event, raising money for Wild Hearts, is coordinated by a group of local Barclays Apprentices. At the start of March, they are given £1. With this £1 they have to raise as much money as possible for the charity.
The idea raises awareness and helps to improve competence and ability in event management, small business growth, money management, network building and creativity, amongst other skills. It provides a great learning process where the groups can acquire new knowledge and skills, explore new subjects and share their current skill set with colleagues to make as much money as possible throughout the course of the month.
We hope you will support us and the Barclays Apprentices in their project, by coming along to our concert and clapping along to the songs we perform. We have a wide selection of music to perform for you including soul hits, motown classics, well known spirituals and upbeat, clap-along vibes.
We will be joined in performance by local singers, some of whom are taking to the stage for the first time. It will be an unmissable evening of music and good times!
