Weekend activities & the Muscat Singers

Well there are two outdoor activities going on this weekend, both involving water, albeit of different types....

Oman Sail are having a "public beach sailing event" on both Thursday and Friday between 10:30am and 5:30pm. At the event you can have a go at sailing, watch people kite surf, enjoy some children's activities, and by far most importantly as far as I'm concerned, enjoy free banana boat rides. Very exciting, I do enjoy going on banana boats.

Now, the other type of water involved with an outdoor activity is the kind that is in the swimming pool at the Grand Hyatt, Muscat. The MRFC and the Grand Hyatt are throwing another "Rat Pack" afternoon in the pool with specials on cocktails and beers. I also do enjoy their swim up bar at the Marjan, delightfully deadly I think best describes it.

Rehearsals for the Winter Concert began on September 15th at TAISM in Azaiba and continue every Saturday from 7.30 until 9.30pm. The Winter Concert will take place early in December and will feature festive music including A Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten.

Newcomers are very welcome and need only have a passion for singing and some musical ability. We are especially looking for male voices to compliment our ensemble.

The Muscat Singers is Oman’s long-standing expatriate community choir. They were established in 1974 and have been entertaining audiences in Oman with regular concerts since the 1990s. They regularly hold a festive winter concert in December and a spring concert just before the summer break. The concerts are held in the Bosch Center for the Performing Arts at TAISM, a state of the art concert theatre that seats 520.

More soon.

  1. Public Beach Sailing Event....

    I wonder how many more of these will happen as Oman closes more and more of its public beaches in the name of tourism.

    Last week, we were not allowed onto Qantab Beach another because they are building a new hotel.
    Once again, regular Omanis are having their resources slowly but very surely stripped away from them!

    Muscat does not need another hotel of that size!

  2. We got chased off the Chedi beach even though we were just walking from one end to the other on the waterline.
