Yes it's back to a new term with Rock Choir and blimey I've missed it so much. It was lovely to see everyone again and get warming those vocal chords up. We have three great new songs to learn this term and true to our name we kicked off in style with the rock classic 'Don't Stop Believin' by Journey.
Air guitars were all tuned up and I have to say for the first week in and a new song we sounded blooming fabulous. I do love this song, it brings back funny memories of a great friend of mine who used to work as a presenter for a local radio station called RAM FM. I used to drive this man mad by requesting this song nearly every day, luckily it was a favourite of his so it became our workplace theme song. I couldn't wait to tell him what we were learning this term, think the conversation went something like, 'you'll never guess what song we are doing at Rock Choir'.......he knew!
Not only did we start a new term we also had a gig on Saturday, I know!!! straight in there eh? We had the privilege of headlining, yes that's headlining The Duffield Arts Festival in Derby. We were in great company with The Derbyshire Constabulary Male Voice Choir and Derby A Capella for a Singing Spectacular. It was spectacular too and I was on my best behaviour obviously with police presence in the house.....didn't want the Derby Telegraph's headline the next day to be 'It was Jailhouse Rock for one member of Derby Rock Choir at the weekend' Yikes!!!
I have to say a big welcome to all the newbies who came along this week, it was lovey to see so many people wanting to join in the fun. Looking forward to progressing with 'Don't Stop Believin' and hopefully taking part in more performances. It's not too late if you want to join us too, just go to the Rock Choir website at www.rockchoir.com and register for a free taster. We have a laugh as well as singing our hearts out so come along, you'll love it. You don't have to audition or be a professional, just as long as you love music and like to sing that's it!
Anyway I'm sure I'll keep updating you all with our antics and what we get up to over the next few months. For now though thank you for reading, I will be back for Teapot Tuesday tomorrow, until then......
Today is about anything to do with my love of music.
