The dress code for choir could be ‘summery’ with Bermuda shorts and bikinis but we decided to go Christmassy after all. Festive jumpers very welcome, as is sticking tinsel anywhere you like it. Remember the concert starts at 7.30pm sharp. There will be no bar, but feel free to bring you own.
And as we scurry to order our folders, we start the second song Make You Feel My Love.
Don’t forget your harmonies when you Walk Right Back. We sang it with great aplomb, and slipped into our sea legs for Song Of The Sea. Coming together beautifully.
And Christmas Medley was upon us again. Shall I bring Ben the singing rat or Elf on a shelf? So the interval is and then we will be Keeping The Dream Alive and remembering the right time to go up and down. More highs everyone. Across The Universe we sang to see if like DFS Dorchester we would keep it in. Let one go at the end of you please, improvisation. Adele, When We Were Young, well we are good at this one! Lovely, lovely. Did anyone notice this little number was more up tempo?
And down tempo, we Bring Him Home ... our next song will bring them near, O Holy Night. Then our concert will end and we will sing our encore Fairy Tale Of New York. Drunk men to start, then everyone, and the audience to sing too. We will make them. In housekeeping, Ed reminded us not to talk to each other between songs, and to arrive at school early if you want to run through your solo. Ed said there would be some surprises, and I asked if we could eat them. Possibly because I’ll be nil by mouth from midnight on concert day. Then we had some time for revisits, vote by mumble, so we did that, until we were Song Perfeft.
We meet again on the 11th January all full of sprouts and raring to go after crunching through the frost up to the hall. Yes we will be back in the Hall. Everyone cheered. See you next week ALSO IN THE HALL for the concert. I love you, keep singing. XXX
