And I was just being nosey! My primary choir are performing tonight - just in the massed choir (used to do solo spots but can't at the moment, for various reasons), and also the band from the same school. The Bromley Prom is held over four nights - couldn't go Monday as I was teaching, went Tuesday and last night and am up on the stage with the sprogs tonight.
Was last night good C?
Yes, thanks - FABBY!!!
Massed choir went mostly well (VERY difficult piece this year - it only fell apart once!) and the other items were excellent. There were 65 schools and 3,000 children taking part over the four nights! My school's band was brill - they really are amazing for a primary school.
And I met some teenagers that I taught at primary - and their parents - lovely to see them again and they all said nice things about how they wouldn't be doing today what they're doing if it hadn't been for my input .
Eldatom - actually, I don't mind whether I'm in the audience or up on stage at Fairfield - it just feels like home to me! My previous primary school choir performed there many times, supporting the Russian Army Band amongst others (all those men in uniform! *mops brow*).
And - sorry, blowing my own trumpet again here - I just had a lovely message on facebook from the mum of someone I taught in primary school, telling me that her daughter is going to graduate with a BA in musical theatre performance from Trinity College this year - and that her love of singing came from me - and that she's going to make a video as a surprise for her daughter's 21st at Easter and wants me to say a few words on it!
So all of that has Made Me Happy Today!
Wonderful! Glad last night went so well, and that news from your ex-pupil is brilliant!
