…is just the best thing ever! And to be in the middle of it, in it, with it, for a full 120 minutes: fabulous!
I still have a badly blocked nose and throat, but that did not stop me from attending Day 1 of the practice sessions for the December Christmas Choir. It was a bit of a shock when I walked in and realised I was the only Indian in the group — a bunch of about 30, most of them seasoned. And, in the next 3 minutes, the music began and I was totally home!
My life! It was a great evening. I’ve never been in a choir before, and except for Silent Night, Jingle Bells and Rudolph the Reindeer, I don’t think I know of any Christmas carols, especially not the proper British ones. Yet, I had an amazing evening.
In plan are these:
Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer
Next practice is on the following Monday. I can’t wait. Already! And hopefully, my voice gets back to normal and I can stop hacking and coughing each time my vocal chords are called up on! If I get along well, I will not only get to perform my first ever choir but also be part of Kuwait’s only Contemporary Choir, singing away to glory at the British Embassy in December 2016!
Thank you, my fabulous boss, for introducing me to Staged In Kuwait! 🙂 Yay!
