28 September 2019

This afternoon I sang at a wedding with choir. All was well but it was quite a long one and I still wasn’t feeling great. We look happy enough though!

Swanky wedding

Today the choir sang at the swankiest wedding ever. It was in a ginormous house with fabulously beautiful garden. Basically we love doing events where we have to perv at posh frocks and people.

FlowersToday I was singing at a wedding with Bel Canto.

The church had the most beautiful floral arch over the door. Gorgeous.

Eisteddfod

We have had a busy day of cooking and chores but this afternoon I was singing in the Eisteddfod with Bel Canto. We were in a class of 5 and we came second but I think we were pretty pleased with our performance.

Singing makes me happy.
Being with these girls makes me happy.
I would be happier if we had won, but one can’t have everything eh?!

Day 82

York Mystery Play rehearsal

Oh this is not the way I want to spent the weekend. This evening was spent rehearsing for the York Mystery Plays. It was freezing and we were sitting in uncomfortably choir stalls. Not my favourite place to be!

A year in pictures – Day 324

Music

Back to choir today and one of the topics of disussion on the island is the suggestion that funding for the Guernsey Music Centre is to be reviewed.

As a teenager most of my Saturdays were spent at Music Centre. I had the fortune of having clarinet and singing lessons, as well as playing in orchestras and wind bands. The music service in Guernsey has always been amazing. So many children have had the opportunities to develop their musical abilities and that would be an absolute travesty if that stopped.

So, all that I learned as a child I still use today. Being part of a choir taught me to be part of a team, to listen to each other, to take instruction (mostly) and to laugh a lot. It taught me discipline and patience but more than that it is great for my mood, mental and physical health and my social life.

Music certainly makes the world go around!

A year in pictures – Day 282

LearningBack to choir again and new songs to learn.

I definitely have less capacity to learn and retain new information these days. When I was about 14 I used to be able to learn stuff easily, these days I have to work much harder at it, especially when it is in a foreign language!

A year in pictures – Day 264

Choir nutters

Tonight the choir was singing at a thing at the Town Church for World Peace Day.

It wasn’t too bad in the end and as usual we enjoyed being together, even if we all look slightly unhinged as usual.
