Updates included the tour dates and itinary all printed out and a warning that the trip would be alcohol free! Next concert is in Wool on 21st April time tbc. Ed was nearly recovered from his worse-case-ever-man-flu and his girl-voice was almost back too. Jack rebooted the school computer and we were good to go.
'Wise' should be very short remember, when we are singing Can't Help Falling In Love. This ones gonna be a cracker for choir, I can feel it in my water. Ed declared it concert-ready, and we stood to perform. We can just leave that to mature like an old cheese ...
And again, starting with the harmony first, we tackled Uptown Girl, Ed throwing them all at us with gusto, til all was clear as proverbial mud. But after an ok run through, it was time to try it al fresco. Uptown ghost was born. We mastered, nay perfected the skill of singing in 12 different keys. I'm not going to list them here because we are quickly moving on to Let It Be Me, and there was a hope that we could achieve the perfect balance of harmonies displayed by Dorchester DFS last night. Well done guys! We sounded a little harmony heavy, a little like The Everly Brothers themselves, but it only took a little work to get us sounding more balanced and then was happy to have us stand and perform again. It's coming together nicely.
Operatic section at the ready for our next song, We Are The Champions, and a quick focus on the timing of the too-many-words in verse two, such fun, and very soon we were on our feet again, and Ed calling for more volume.
And then most of It's Getting Better, was to be followed by our Any-oke song, but the key change on the YouTube track sucks. The winner was a blank piece of paper, well three, and following a reject we sang Roxette It Must Have Been Love and went home full of love. See you next time, keep singing, love Cat xxx
My didn't we do
