We had a high old time last week learning 'Eagle High' from Utopia Ltd (sorry my pun use isn't up to Gilbert's standard!), 'Won't it be a Pretty Wedding' from The Grand Duke, and 'Walls and Fences Scaling' from Princess Ida.

This year's AGM will take place on Friday 21st September at Carnon Downs Village Hall. We socialise after the AGM; please do bring a plate of food or something to drink. Raffle prizes are also always welcome!
The postcode for the hall and a link to the hall on Google maps are on the Programme tab above.
Rehearsals start again next Wednesday, 12th September, for another exciting year. It is going to be a little different on many levels but it will be the usual mix of fun and hard work. There will be a warm welcome for anyone who would like to come along to see if they would like to join us.
Hello to all our members and followers. We need your help.
We are looking for a rehearsal/performance pianist to support us though our next season - starting in September 2018. Please tell any of your musical friends in Cornwall who may have contacts who could help us out.
If you direct them to this blog for information it will let them know how we work.
We are also on Facebook as Gilbert and Sullivan Cornwall. There is a link to the Facebook page on the right hand side of this blog.
If people wish to make contact with us, they can email our Secretary via the Join Us page on this blog, or leave a message on the Facebook page and our MD will get back to them to discuss.
