We were pleased to welcome nearly 80 delegates to our annual workshop on Saturday, 23rd January, including many returnees from the past five years we’ve been holding this event.
It was great to have some of our sister chorus, Cardiff Style, supporting us and also the ‘Red Hatters’ – lovely ladies from Cotswold Gems who do much charity work around the Gloucester area.
10:00 am sharp start with a vocal warm-up routine from Musical Director Jo Thorn, followed by some singing craft, then off to the first break out session for three parts to find they are singing ‘doo’ for half of the song, whilst the Leads captivate us all with the melody.
The seemingly impossible was achieved yet again at 3:30 pm – Show Time – when the delegates were up on the risers singing the day’s song with confidence, smiles and no music; truly page to stage in a day.
Much home-made cake consumed by all (understandably, to keep the energy levels up) supplied by Fascinating Rhythm’s first-class catering team and a good venue with plenty of room made a happy day; great fun and looking forward to next year already.
Added bonus in that some of the delegates will be joining Fascinating Rhythm shortly.
