I managed to catch up with a couple of BKA first timers, Cilla and Chris, over some delicious lasagne this lunchtime. I asked them how they were getting on. Chris said the course so far was brilliant.
We talked about that morning’s choir session with Dr. Árpád Tóth. Remembering how nervous I was at my first BKA choir session I asked how they’d got on. Cilla told me it was a privilege just to be in the room. When she started to feel out of her depth she just closed her eyes, listened and enjoyed. By tomorrow’s choir session she will have had a couple of musicianship lessons with Miranda Zwalf under her belt. I suspect by the end of the week all our newbies will be singing with confidence and joy!
