Peel Pensioners / Next RehearsalPosted: March 27, 2014
Firstly, thanks for a great concert at Peel Pensioners last night.
We were very well received, and got some lovely feedback from both the organisers and the audience. They’ve already asked us back next year.
Putting on my M.D.’s hat, I felt we did very well overall, and really pulled the rabbit out of the hat compared to a few weeks back.
As always, we had the odd slip – but this was contrasted with a moment or three of sheer brilliance, where everything came together just right.
Over the next few weeks, I’d like us to take our collective foot off the gas a little bit – Still working to improve our musical offering, but without the pressure of an imminent concert.
We’ve got a working repertoire, so now we can afford the time to explore a few of the tunes in more depth, look more deeply into balancing, expression etc. … and this coming Monday we’ll try out some stuff from ‘a different track’ – which should be fun and educational. This in addition to running through the 2 Manx Passion Tunes.
Thanks again – and I look forward to seeing you at Eastcliffe as usual on Monday.
