Since leaving Southampton on Friday afternoon the Director of Music has travelled 1000 nautical miles on his voyage across the great and wide sea (also, but no signs of those creeping things innumerable yet). Memories of past choir Cinema trips came flooding by with the announcement of a 24 hour rolling presentation of Mr Bean's Holiday on Channel 25. Breakfast this morning was with a couple from Pennsylvania, Buck and Nancy, who are now coming to our concert in Bethlehem, PA.
Much of the voyage so far spent reading Voltaire's Candide, marking up scores for Bach Choir, and hoping that Des and Gladys are behaving themselves. Last night's black and tie ball gave us a chance to show off our cha-cha-cha, which is certainly not the Director of Music's strength, even though Mrs Dunleavy is adept.
