What a week it’s been – and it’s not over yet!
On Monday, we enjoyed the return of our Double-Choir Special, with 8 voice barnstormers from Croce, Lassus, Victoria, Palestrina, Zielenski, Padilla and the man who launched early music’s favourite hashtag, Hassler.
It’s always a risky venture programming double-choir numbers because when they go wrong, they tend to go spectacularly wrong. However, barring a couple of hiccups, got through them amazingly well, as you can see:
The following night saw our return to the lovely Canbury Arms, where Counterpint was first launched 2 years ago as part of the Kingston Arts Festival of the Voice.
Once again we were honoured to be a featured FotV event and we welcomed many new faces as well as some old friends.
We hope to be back down in Kingston again soon, so keep an eye out for updates.
But our singing week hasn’t finished yet – on Sunday we launch our very first Polyphony Down the Pub Brighton!
We are almost fully booked, with only a couple of soprano spaces left, so do let your Brighton friends know in case it’s of interest.
Finally, we are back with our friends at Travelling Through next Wednesday (November 22nd) for another Counterpint in the Cafe session.
Booking goes live at 5pm tomorrow (Friday November 17th), with the remaining spaces available at 9am the next day.
As we may be featuring some of the double-choir rep, I’m going to ask that you book only if a) you’re comfortable singing with only 2 or 3 others on your part and b) if you are absolutely, 100% certain that you’ll be there; if you’re unsure on either point, please join us another time.
We’re also trying out a new version of the waiting list so do make sure you follow the instructions if you’re putting your name down for cancellations.
