The two concerts were very successful, with nearly full houses both nights and wonderful feedback from all of those who came to see us.
All of the songs in our program were met with great applause, especially 'Short People' (I think its because Frank & I are so hilarious on our solos....), the Allelluia (a gorgeous piece full of intricate harmonies and two fabulous solos featuring the magical voices of Miss Emma Power and Mr. Conor Prendiville), and the moving 'My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord,' which had not only the entire choir pumped up with its rhythmical fervor, but the audience too (this will be performed at the Cork Choral Festival this coming weekend).
The Choral Workshop we attended in Galway's gorgeous Hogwart's-like University was great fun, as seen in the photo above, and we all learned a lot, including how to perform a piece entirely made up of pictures, squiggly lines, and weird symbols.......
The hard work the choir has put in all year really paid off this weekend, with this successful tour giving us the energy boost we need just in time for the busy weeks ahead....... Can't wait for the next tour Voci!
Busy is the word best used to describe Voci's schedule for the upcoming week, where I'm looking forward to spending lots of time with my Voci peeps while getting tucked into 'everything choral' as we've a load of gigs on and the Cork Choral Competition itself to deliver on this week - check out the 'Upcoming Events' page to discover when you can catch Voci Nuove's next performances, which are not to be missed! ;-)
