We'll be doing the same thing again this year - from the first Tuesday in November, Margot will once again be rehearsing with us and we'll be relearning our Christmas Carol set and heading into the local festive haunts to carol our heads off! Looking forward to it - and who knows, once we're all polished up on our Xmas songs, we might head into the studio and record them all for a wee Awesome Voices Xmas CD. Why not!
The year's been great so far. We're getting our teeth into some new material - quite chunky stuff really - a funky arrangement of Ed Sheerin's I See Fire and one of my original songs, The Harmony Lesson - this song gives a great breakdown of the evolution of harmony over the ages.
Earlier this year, in September, we took to the road and headed down to Blackheath in the Blue Mountains for one of our favourite festivals - The Blue Mountains Choral Festival. This was our second performance here and we had a great time! We went down a treat and the audience seemed to love us! We're already planning to head back down again for the next one, in 2018, and maybe I'll bring Men Wot Sing down as well!
And, Shhhh ... don't tell anybody, but there's even murmurings about a possible tour overseas some time next year ... watch this space!!
Well, that'll do for now ... just a quick blog entry! Hope you're all doing well and enjoying singing! 'til next time!
