Rock Choir

comes to Hitchin.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's scheduled for Tuesday evenings, the same time as my Singing Aloud acappela group. I'm not tempted to join, even though I could walk to the venue. I have no desire to sing 'organised Karaoke'(©MWNN) no matter how good.

The worrying thing is that Singing Aloud's numbers remain small (core of about 14, which can create problems in songs with 5 part harmony such as Tracks of My Tears). Personally, I like the 'family feel' to the smaller group but I understand our Director's concern and desire to increase numbers.

Now, with Rock Choir opening its doors for the first time next week, the promotion of Singing Aloud cannot compete with this National Juggernaut's Media circus.
