Keeping the SFP choir family together
Despite the situation of not being able to come together and sing we have found new ways to keep the music going.
Singing For Pleasure was saddened with the news that Alain Scordel former musical director of our lovely friendship choir in France passed away.
Alain was the conductor of the French Choir Arabesque for over 40 years. Together with music and his lovely personality he touched so many peoples lives over the years.
Alain you and your family will be forever in our thoughts and prayers as will all our friends of the Arabesque Choir in France.
This November we remember Cliff Rogers co founder of Singing For Pleasure and president of the choir. All of us in the choir give thanks for the joy of music that he brought and we take this time to remember past choir members who will always be forever in our hearts and minds.
