A very warm welcome to our new website and blog. Followers of Platinum are probably thinking that this is the third new website in as many years. You are right! We are undergoing so many changes and developments at the moment and keeping our branding and image up to date is SO crucial. I hope you agree that we have landed on something bright and fresh. We wanted to get this right for you and for the Platinum followers of the future!
This news blog in particular is a new addition to the site and will give you yet another way to keep in touch with us. If Facebook and Twitter don't float your boat why not come and check this now and then? I promise the posts will be interesting.... (ahem).

So - what is there to look forward to in 2012? Many things. We are on the cusp of a record deal and having lots of fun planning programmes for recordings and performances. Platinum Boys' Choir is well under way and is looking forward to a tour to Venice in April (they can't wait to eat PIZZAS!). We will be introducing our new Chamber Choir into the mix, too, with a rather exciting performance of Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers. The Chamber Choir is voluntary and ideally suited for those who sang brilliantly at University but went on to choose more sensible careers... Members of the Chamber Choir will have the opportunity to sing with the Consort to great combined effect. On that note, it is also worth mentioning that our Period Band will also make its first outing with the Monteverdi. We have used instrumentalists before (chamber organs and dulcians etc) but this will be the first time that we will be singing with our very own band! I also ought to put out there that the Consort is hoping to perform a rather revolutionary Brahms Requiem - with 10 singers and 4 hands! Watch this space.
That's probably enough for now - I hope I have whetted your appetite for what is going to be a whirlwind of a 2012 Season.
