New Pinkie’s view – Tim


I’ve just finished my first season with the Pink Singers and wow what an action packed and fun season it was.
Joining a choir was something that I had been thinking about doing for a long time but had never actually done anything about. I’d been a bit musical in my youth – playing in a brass band, singing in a choir and camping in up in the school musical! So on one of those quiet ‘surfing’ days (you know the ones!) I came across the Pink Singers website and thought why not? I dropped them a line and waited to see what would happen.
The new members’ contact soon got back to me and I found myself nervously going along to a rehearsal on a Sunday afternoon in Baker Street. I say nervously but in reality I had nothing to be nervous about. You don’t have to audition to become a member – just a quick voice check to make sure you’re singing in the right section for your voice. On my first rehearsal I joined the basses and was warmly welcomed by them all. After the rehearsal I had a quick voice check with Michael – again absolutely nothing to worry about- and I was soon no longer a bass but a tenor! Continue reading “New Pinkie’s view – Tim”

New Pinkie’s view – Judy B


Well, what can I say? What a great way to start the year! This was my first concert with the choir so it was a really big deal to me, and I’m pleased to say it was a fabulous experience.
Everyone’s hard work really paid off. We’d had enough rehearsals to make sure everything was down to a fine art, but not too many to make it all seem over-rehearsed.
The repertoire was fab. I heard so many ‘wows’ from the audience afterwards, and the biggest critics of all (my parents) absolutely loved it! I think they’ve ‘outed’ me to all my relatives by going on about it to them!
Seems like the audience want to see Tragedy as an encore next time – I guess all the torturous hours of movement rehearsals (only joking, Debbie) were worth it. It was also great to share the concert with the Rainbow Singers and the LGMC, both of which were brilliant.
The brunch was a lovely way to end the weekend. I had a great time (granted I couldn’t stay too long) and I got the chance to learn a few names I hadn’t known! (Oh yeah, and the food was yummy too!). Everything had been so well organised, so a big thank you to Lynne, Mladen, Michael… in fact, to everyone involved in making this such a fantastic weekend.
