On Wednesday 26th July, after just 11 rehearsals, MicWire reached a great milestone when we took to the Redshift Radio Stage at the prestigious Nantwich Show to perform in public for the first time.
As it was a work day during the summer holidays, it meant that unfortunately, not all of the choir members were able to join us for our debut appearance – however, I want to share a big THANK YOU to every one of you who has put in so much hard work over the past few months to allow a brand-new-choir-in-Crewe idea to flourish. It was such a thrill to finally see all that work come together during our performance on Wednesday.
Whilst the choir continues to attract new members from Crewe, Nantwich and further afield, I want to extend another massive thanks to everyone who was able to come along to sing at the Nantwich Show, including those who carefully booked annual leave from work to be there.
It was a great first performance and although it was early in the day, we were thankful to be able to sing for a sizeable and friendly audience. We know lots of them hadn’t heard of us before so can assume that they were either friends and family of the choir or simply there seeking shelter from the wet weather. It was a real pleasure singing for so many of you and we hope you enjoyed it!
Although the day started out stormy and grey, it certainly didn’t put off the punters because the show was buzzing all day long. After lunchtime, we even witnessed some rare British summer sunshine.
There was plenty to do at the show after our performance for those who didn’t have to rush back to work. This included sampling a myriad of delicious food and drink, shopping in the craft tent, tasting lots of cheese and watching the animal awards.
A couple of the choir stuck around to watch the other talented musicians and singers who performed at the RedShift Community Garden. It’s fabulous to reaffirm that there is a wealth of local musical talent out there and I know I can speak for all of MicWire when I say that we were honoured to be asked to sing at the show alongside all those other great musicians on the programme.
If you love singing and are looking for a local choir to join, please come along to any of our rehearsals to meet us. We rehearse every Wednesday 7:30pm at the Crewe Lifestyle Centre.
If you don’t fancy joining us but want to support us instead, please make sure you put the dates in your diary for our future performances – we look forward to meeting you soon:
30th July – Nantwich Big Day Out
6th August – Private Charity Event to raise money for Breast Cancer Care
