One week to go

As readers of this blog will know, I signed up to sing with SingLive earlier this year.

In many respects that all seems like very long time ago now, though in other respects, with only one week to go (!!) until the big performance in The Waterfront Hall it doesn't seem long enough ago. We are in the final week of rehearsals and it's pretty hectic.

The show is SingSwing and features old favourites like New York, New York; Chatanooga Choo Choo; Me and My Gal; Fly Me to the Moon; String of Pearls and loads more to get the old feet tapping. As well as choir pieces and a swing band there will also be a range of solos by some very talented, if somewhat mad, choir members!

The best laugh is that we all have to dress in 40's style, which has proved a little interesting. There are not too many choirs where the tenors wear bright red lipstick!

Do you know what, if you read this and you're in the area next Sunday evening and fancy a good night out with some familiar music, you could do a lot worse than buy a ticket.

And beware, because these things travel round the UK, and a tenor in bright red lipstick could just appear in a venue somewhere near you.
