gasworks choir at st george’s

Moira, Alan, Iona+I went along to St George’s in Bristol last night to listen/see the Gasworks Choir in action again (and Gareth singing too, obviously). They’re a community choir. There’s a long waiting list to join, but no auditions. They learn by listening, not by reading music. They’re about 150 strong and they all wear orange, red or pink and they make an amazing sound. It reminded me of a blog I wrote at the start of last year after hearing Brian Eno extol the virtues of singing.
Well, he just could be right; their enthusiasm and energy is infectious.
