The World Cup may have scuppered our plans for a regular PDtP session in June but we’re hoping that Continue reading Croatia v Iceland & Nigeria v Argentina? Or Hassler v Josquin & Victoria v Palestrina?
is when booking for PDtP on March 26th goes live – so Continue reading 5pm today
And that booking is already open? Honestly, sometimes I think we’d be hard-pressed to organise a singalong in a brewery.
On the slim chance that any of you Continue reading Why did no one tell us that there’s a Counterpint in the Cafe next Tuesday?
What a week it’s been – and it’s not over yet!
On Monday, we enjoyed the return of Continue reading Back-to-back brilliance!
In a week’s time, around 70 of us will be convening for a special, 3rd Birthday session of Polyphony Down the Pub.
So in my exceitement following last week’s PDtP session (more on that below), I completely forgot to set up and publicise the booking arrangements for next Wednesday’s Counterpint in the Cafe.
I’ve corrected this now and the booking page is now live so please go ahead and sign up. (Having left it so late to tell you about it, we may end up being low in terms of numbers; if this proves to be the case we may have to rethink things but do go ahead and register if you want to come along.)
I’m not sure how many of June’s PDtP numbers will make it on to the Cafe Counterpint setlist as they were a mixed bunch, some of which worked a lot better than others. (On that note, let’s never speak of Bateson‘s And must I needs depart. Never, ever.) However, it was still very much a fun evening of singing so thanks to all who came.
Apologies once again for the Cafe Counterpint oversight but I hope many of you can still make it. I promise to be more diligent in setting up July’s PDtP, which will almost certainly be on Monday July 3rd; details to follow next week.
While there’s still time to sign up for this Monday’s PDtP session*, anyone looking further ahead may be pleased to know that PDtP XVII has been confirmed for February 8th and PDtP XVIII is March 7th.
Sign up here for February’s PDtP, which will explore the music of the Italian masters.
March’s PDtP on the other hand will focus on double-choir repertoire.
News on future Counterpint sessions will follow so keep an eye out for updates.
*Altos, technically there are no spots left for you at Monday’s event but the waiting list is open and I’d be surprised if we weren’t able to squeeze in one or two more of you somehow…
