For 2018, the idea of goin abroad came up during the annual meeting. Oxford seems to be possibl thanks to Reiner and Jenny – they will be making contact and try to find out what’s possible… Fraser has reserved the days around “Pfingsten” for that. However, a lot of things have to be clarified and organised. Right now it’s nothing more than an idea that needs to take shape. Thus, please keep this date blocked in your diary until further notice:
Pfingsten 2018, 3-4 days somwhere between Fr 18 May and Wed, 23 May
Thank you, have fun singing tomorrow and see you next week (I have to be Berlin and cannot be there tomorrow),
