What a way to end our spring term!
Last night was the big concert at St Mark’s and we sang so well! Our four songs were probably the most varied we’ve sung together in one performance; from the four-part latin motet ‘Ave Verum’ by Mozart to the classic ‘rhythm of life’ and the World War One song ‘they’ll never believe me’ to the American folk song ‘Wayfarin’ stranger’ sung in a motown style, we had everyone singing along in their seats!
It was a great sound joining in with the other choirs too in ‘lean on me’ and ‘amazing grace’. There’s something so moving when you hear so many voices alongside your own – such a good experience. All three choir leaders joined in the mass singalong and we forgot to get a photograph of everyone in action – thankfully though we do have a picture of the after party!
Anyway, that’s all for this term! Choir starts again on Tuesday 29th of April in the St Giles’ Centre at 7.45pm. We’ve got lots to look forward to – rehearsing for a theatre project with the Young Vic and preparing for a World War One concert with King’s College Hospital. Thanks for all your efforts and support so far this year – have a very happy Easter.
