We’ve good news and bad news and good news

Good News Part 1: Counterpint in the Cafe will be back next Tuesday, May 29th. We’ll be revisiting some of the fab madrigals (fabrigals?) from Monday’s PDtP  special session but also some non-madrigals in order to keep me sane.

Booking goes live in one fell swoop today at 5pm (no extra spaces will be released tomorrow), so get in quick.

Here’s the bad news: owing to the pub’s limited availability and my limited availability and the looming omnipresence of the World Cup, it’s looking highly unlikely that there will be a Polyphony Down the Pub session in June.

I know that many of you will be disappointed – I certainly am, as we’ve never had to skip a session in 3 and a half years – but it’s part of an increasingly difficult problem for me to make the schedule work.

I’ll cover this in more detail in a separate blog-post but for the time being, unless a miraculous diary change takes place, we will not be meeting at the Horse and Stables in June.


Good News Part 2: we are of course putting on a special Counterpint in Crouch End on June 11th as part of the Stroud Green Festival and there’s still plenty of room for you all.

The set-list will include some of the very best stuff that we’ve covered in previous PDtP sessions (including a double-choir motet if we’re lucky) so salve your feelings of disappointment by joining us for this ‘Greatest Hits’ session in North London; booking link here.

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
