The QUO’s Very Festive Season

Posted to website January 3rd 2019

The end of 2018 was a busy time for the QUO as they were involved in the Armistice Centenary, a fundraiser for Dementia UK, and the Christmas celebrations.

The weekend of 10th and 11th November saw performances at the Village Hall, which had been turned into a Flanders Field hospital by members of the Quorndon Shakespeare company and at Rawlins School where the Village Events Group were staging a Thankfulness Lunch. These were the QUO’s first live appearances, where those countless hours of practice paid off resulting in near faultless renditions of wartime songs from the period.

Next, the Blacksmiths Arms invited the QUO to play as the pub hosted a Cake and Coffee Morning which raised £610 to sponsor an Admiral Nurse.

But the warm glow of satisfaction of a job well done was barely cold, before the members knuckled down to practise Christmas songs for three forthcoming concerts.

Tuesday 18th December saw a 15 strong contingent arrive at the Old School in the village to entertain the members of QUOFS, the over 60’s club. Then it was a double-header Thursday with an afternoon performance at the Orchard Care Home, and an evening carol concert at the Baptist Church, both in the village.

The company then retreated to the Quorndon Fox for a well-earned drink, where despite the rigours of the day, they staged an impromptu sing song at the behest of the customers and staff. All-in-all a great team-building exercise and a fitting end to what had been a whirlwind first year.

But not resting on their laurels, preparations are in hand for forthcoming appearances, including the village’s May Day spectacular, and a section of the orchestra working as wandering minstrels, at the 2019 Quorn Open Gardens event in June. Look out for the QUO at an event near you!

The orchestra is available to perform at your event, and our fee will be used to support charities in the local community.

The QUO meets every Thursday evening in the Committee Room of the Village Hall (L/H side door) and welcome new strummers of all abilities. To contact us, read more about the Quorn Ukulele Orchestra.
