Musical

Monday 30th December 2019

Sat up in the gods, or in the stalls

enjoying the vibe of the tunes

nailing together the storyline and

sewing up all the loose threads

as you watch the actors tell the tale, you

tap away in rhythm with the cast

it wont be long till you join in with the rest

on the request of one of the actors on stage – as the

next thing you know – you’re leading the chorus

A Choral thing – Part II

Friday 17th June 2016

Imperial War Museum North (Red Room)

Another meeting of the Choir today, after our round robin performances at IWM North, Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Museum.

There must have been something in the air today, in that we were a little reduced in number – but the enthusiasm of the group wasn’t tempered.

We concentrated on two numbers today, All above my head and All around – concentrating on a few changes to the way we sung it at previous performances.

A choral thing

Sing

a literary response to the Manchester Voices Volunteer Choir

Let the people sing aloud,

for those in the audience are justly proud…

of those gathered together in a mere few weeks –

the music director needed some tweaks…

as they sorted the tenors from the bass baritone

with a couple of sopranos sometimes singing alone.

but joining as one, they’ve sung their songs

(and sometimes , their audience have been singing along)
