The Night Before ...

I suppose we could have squeezed a few more into the school hall last night, but it was fairly full for the final Friday rehearsal before the Corn Exchange concert.

Carmina Burana got a good going over, with Robert conducting in the first half, this time also with two pianos and some extra percussion.

And then, after that lip-busting session, we spent the second half jubiliating with Lloyd, as he took us for a work-out of his own.

Add Ted Huggens’ New Baroque Suite, the Carnival of Venice, Gallimaufry, Paris Sketches, West Side Story, and Vaughan Williams’ Flourish for Wind Band for the actual concert, and the audience will have a real treat; and we will all sleep well in our beds tonight.
