Yet another song and fun-filled afternoon on Friday, 26th May, with a good attendance of seventeen songsters, one of whom, Jim, is a new member. As has now become normal practice, Judith got the show on the road with tuition in posture and practice in how to get the best out of our voices. These are practical exercises in the making of different musical sounds with our mouths for a better, more tuneful effect. Then more work in preparation for a very nice round (Music and Joy Shall Live) we hope to sing next time we meet on Friday 9th June – it’s going to sound so sweet, says Robert hopefully. Following that, a mixed bag of different kinds of songs, some with Judith playing accompaniment, others to music on CDs and vinyl. A comprehensive à la carte fare before the tea break and then a similar approach right through to 4 o’clock – the time had crept up on us unnoticed – though additionally in this half a performing solo by our resident diva, Pauline, accompanied by Judith on the piano. All in all a soul-satisfying afternoon’s experience. Robert Cook 01858 469337.
