My name is Mark Winter. My section is Bass 2. I joined the Pink Singers in 2004. I joined the Pink Singers because my ex-girlfriend(!) Kay persuaded me to come along to hold her hand and I liked it so much I decided to join. My favourite thing about being a Pinkie is definitely the concerts and having my mum saying “that’s my gay son up there!” When I’m not rehearsing you can find me occasionally working, watching Deal Or No Deal or learning Greek. The song that I would most like us to perform is Come What May from Moulin Rouge. The song in our repertoire which should be laid to rest is Deo Gracias (Deo Deo Deo Deo blah blah blah)
Hsien sat down with James to have a chat about James’ experience of Still Misbehavin’, our winter concert 2006 and his debut with the Pink Singers. Hsien: I’m Hsien, the webmaster. James: And I’m James, I was a new member last season. H: Absolutely, we’re doing this because James is going to give us his report on what his first choir concert was like. J: And it was brilliant! I really, really loved it. I was a lot more nervous than I expected. H: I think that most people have nervous jitters coming up to the concert. I remember my own first concert four years ago – it was terrifying. J: Yes, terrifying but really exciting at the same time. Having everyone dress up in black and their bit of pink, all that added an extra element. And having friends and all sorts of important people come see the gig, I found that quite exciting.

I was most excited when I heard the pinkies needed some more altos to sing in Admiralty Arch before Christmas this year. I thought, “Gosh, its not just something to drive under, you can go inside, who knew?” I looked up some history on the Arch, apparently it was originally commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of his mother, Queen Victoria. Its there to divide the hectic traffic of Trafalgar Square from the mall. Oh and apparently it has nothing whatsoever to do with the navy. Continue reading “Pinkies At The Home Office”
On Wednesday 6th December 2006 a small group of Pinkies sang carols at Waterloo station in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. The idea was: We sing; they shake buckets; money falls into buckets. Continue reading “Carolling At Waterloo”
My name is Anna. My section is Altos. I joined the Pink Singers in 2000. I joined the Pink Singers because I used to hear them singing and Mladen shouting when I walked up Chenies St., which was a variable draw. My favourite thing about being a Pinkie is singing. When I’m not rehearsing you can find me at work, suffering. The song that I would most like us to perform is something by the Mamas & the Papas or Nina Simone. The song in our repertoire which should be laid to rest is Hand In Hand, the crap repetitive drone from Rent, Colours Of The Wind and the delightful I Believe I Can Fly.
