Concord and Disharmony

Off to the dress rehearsal tonight for my choir's Easter concert. We (London Concord Singers) are doing a concert tomorrow (St. Patrick's Day), so its a selection of music with Irish connections - music by E.J.Moeran, Charles Wood, Elizabeth Maconchy and Samuel Barber, our usual varied mix, more details here.


There have been the usual panics leading up to the concert, especially as this term is so short (Easter is very early this year), but it has not helped that our regular concert venue (St. Cyprian's Church) is in dispute with Westminster City Council over their licence to perform concerts. So we've had to move the concert from there to the Grosvenor Chapel and are not sure where our July concert is going to be. I have even had emails from other groups, trying to find out whether we knew anything more about the situation. There must be a lot of performing groups in London looking for alternative venues.

Whilst rehearsing for this concert I've been helping to plan the July concert and sorting out the bookings for our Summer trip abroad (we're going to Strasbourg this year - we hope to do the Krystof Harant mass at the Cathedral). I sort of end up living simltaneously in the present and the future.
