Today I got to go to a rehearsal with my choir, City Voices Cardiff. CVC usually rehearses on a Tuesday evening, but there is the occasional Sunday rehearsal, which is useful for me, as I often miss Tuesdays for work.
I joined in 2008 in the choir’s early days, for many different reasons. I liked the idea of the social aspect, and now have many good friends in the choir; four of us even went to New York in November 2010.
I think understanding something about how singers breathe and learning something about singing has also improved how I perform my job.
CVC performs music from the movies and musicals; I enjoy singing a different type of music to the sort of music I play as a violinist. This is from a charity concert we performed last year.
