Last weekend was something of a classic in terms of its madness at 'Chateau Knightthorpe'. Enchanted were doing the entertaining on Friday night which just so happened to be my birthday! So I was happy to forego a party type celebration in favour of playing at being cameraman for the gig. Now don't start feeling sorry for me! In view of my current status as being 'between jobs' and being somewhat skint, this was no bad thing. Besides, as it turmed out it was way more entertaining than any party ever could be.
The concert was staged at St. Michaels Church, Sutton Bonington along with the Sutton Bonington Voices, led by the LMVC's very own Chris Hill. What with the LMVC, Sutton Bonington Voices, his ivory tinkling for Enchanted and organ playing at Trinity, one does wonder what Mr Hill likes to do in his spare time? If indeed he does ever have any!?!
And then of course, there was Pleasant and Delightful! This included my second solo of the third verse of this folk song and I think it was a vast improvement on my first effort in terms of confidence and expression. I just LOVED it. Come ABRSM Grade 5 time, I'll do the whole song for the 'unaccompanied folk song of my choice'! The whole song just felt so much better, probably because of Trinity's superb acoustics, with the audience joining in and with my gradually increasing confidence. I can't wait to receive my CD to see if it really was as good as it seemed.
