Thank you all so much for coming along and singing with me over the last couple of weeks. It has been a pleasure to meet you and wonderful to hear all your voices.
As you know, I was originally looking for ten soloists and a further thirty people to form a choir. However, as the auditions went on, I realised that choosing them was simply impossible. Of the ninety people who auditioned, there were far, far more capable singers than I had ever anticipated. I thought long and hard and realised that even the least accomplished singers lacked only experience and opportunity. Everyone showed potential to work very well in the choir.
So… I have spoken with Ian and Jonathan and Anthony, and we have agreed that ALL the people who auditioned are welcome to rehearse and record with us. Yes. All ninety of you!
