Last night (Tuesday), we again held a "Zoom" audio and visual meeting via the internet. It was in the form of a virtual tea break, simulating the tea break at choir rehearsals. We had 10 members join the group this week including Wendy, who joined us for the first time. We started the session with a catch up, with everyone relating what they had been doing since last Tuesday and any interesting asides. This week we all gave an account of how we came to join the choir, for the benefit of Wendy. Roy helped out with the dates, as he had his records to hand. Marion had fallen over during the week and sported a black eye and sprained ankle. Paul shared some photographs, one of which was of his son at Albert Docks in Liverpool appearing twice in the same picture. We then had an A B C quiz round set by Jenny, with 26 questions the answers starting with A through to Z. Paul played "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel, followed by "The Lord Is My Shepherd", set to the theme tune from the BBC TV series The Vicar Of Dibley and with microphones muted, we all sang along. Paul would like more people to join the virtual choir mix for the two songs. Instructions on how, can be sent to you by emailing Jenny. There was then a short discussion about the next project. Jenny brought the meeting to a close at 9.05pm.
Jenny can email members "The Lord Is My Shepherd" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" sung by Paul with Sue on the piano, so those that wish, can sing and record their parts, to send to Paul for mixing. She would also like to encourage more members to join in another Zoom session next week.
At our last choir rehearsal meeting, held on 10 March, we again rehearsed items for our concert in July (now postponed), entitled Our Favourite Things. We sang Trade Winds,The Rhythm Of Life, Steal Away, Thank You For The Music, Pie Jesu, A Clare Benediction and The Sound of Music medley.
The new web page is up and running, as you can see. Hope you like the look of it.
Stay safe, John
