Ed welcomed everyone to the last rehearsal of the year and challenged us to speak to someone we have never spoken to before. Nice.
There were lovely letters to take away about the Canterbury trip, and Ed also thanked everyone who came to sing carols at the weekend. Oh yeah. And there was cider.
Meet for 7.30 roughly start on Monday. Doors open at 7 of course. And we probably really start at 7.45. Running order is like St Abdrews, but with all our Christmas songs added. There was a flurry of folder flapping as we quickly added things in the right place.
Our choir master recently spent some useful time with a speach therapist and extolled the virtues of a good gargle. This is something I often do with a tight/scratchy/tickly throat .... Sometimes badly making the water go the wrong way. Feels good though, so why not have a good gargle at the end of this blog post?
Woollies seemed to be absorbing most of the sound today. Oh dear. Time for an OY! Well several of them. And then some 'over the top' singing. Nice. It's all about tehnics!
Then we learned how to do a great big STAR but I can't blog that because it would give away our trade secret, and we are professionals after all ...
During break time I was very brave and went roght to the back where I talked to Nicky and Jo and swapped facts. Fun. People still ask about the wedding, which is lovely. Look out for some pics of DFS at that event, coming soon!
Ed wanted to have a play with 'a little help from my friends' and put it to a vote. Motion carried. Ooops. Be brave!
Of course I'll be back on Monday to blog the concert, but I may as well say thanks and happy Christmas :-) keep singing and also, gargling. Specially in ASDA. XXXX
