I've made some corrections to the Siegfried review; a rather embarassing number of typos seem to have crept in, but then I am not the best of proof readers. My apologies.

We are currently going to quite a few London Film Festival events, so there is slightly less musical activity than usual. That said, tonight is the annual autumn soiree for the Friends of the Chelsea Festival, hosted by the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea at Kensington Town Hall. We've performed at 3 festivals over the years and keep in touch just in case there is space for us at a future one. Also, we're Friends anyway as there are usually some interesting musical events on. (That said, I don't think we managed anything this year but that was down to problems of timing more than anything else).

Then tomorrow we're off to Salome at the London Coliseum; ENO's revival of David Levaux's production with Cheryl Barker in the title role, her first stab at the role I believe. I've never seen Levaux's production and David has never seen Salome staged so it seemed a good moment to catch up with the production. I'll report back after we've seen it.

I'm still working on songs (well, a song); my second this autumn. I am also trying to find some more poetry to set. The local bookshop did not have any books by poets that I'd identified, so it looks as though a trip to the library is in order. That way, at least I might find some poems which I like which aren't about love.
