All the groups did a couple of songs in the first half and a couple more in the second. To rapturous applause we seemed to have gone down well (again if you don’t mind me saying!). Positive comments received included how energetic we all were (ie not just standing still all the time) and how we engaged with the audience rather than look at music or words or stare into space – something we try to work on consciously. It was our second or more performance with the new line up (ie with Damian) – so a well done to Damian especially!
Have a look at some of the pics of the Open Mic night we performed at and maybe come along yourself one day: (the picture of VoiceMale is the one of the 4 men!) http://www.harmonyopenmic.org.uk/
As an aside during our busy rehearsal times you might be interested to know about the odd diversions we end up having in the chats in between or even during singing! Here’s a few (some are singing related but not all) and I quote:
“ Sorry I’m on the wrong note. I’m wondering is it him or me...we do diverge at one or two moments”
“You know what....I might get a bike from me mate and he might teach me archery!”
“Are we all to agree that we will sing ‘an’ instead of ‘and’?”
“That was rubbish – let’s do it again!”
Hopefully when it’s my turn to write the next blog I’ll have some more ditties for you!
