Rehearsing with Simon Over

Conductor, Simon Over
What a wonderful rehearsal with conductor Simon Over yesterday afternoon! 

He has quite a way with words when describing to the choir the effect he's looking for, like: 

"sing with monastic clarity, not operatic" 

and for that long phrase, sustain the legato 

"like a washing line with pegs on it". 

John Drummond, composer, was there too and he seems happy with the choir's sound. Don't miss "The Journey Home" next Saturday 8 September, at the Regent Theatre

This is a work with punch to the guts and it brings goose-bumps to the skin!
