With a Song in My Heart

Sunday 3rd July – Swan Theatre

I played doube bass in a concert in Swan Theatre , Worcester, with the Elgar Chorale and Great Witley Operatic Society singing, conducted by Donald Hunt. There were four musicians – drums, alto sax, electric piano and ME! We all know how loud a sax can be, drums are not quiet by nature, the piano had a volume control and an amplifier, the solo singer had a microphone and I … had a very sore plucking finger by the end of the night!

I’m not sure whether anyone heard me. I know I played my little heart out and I enjoyed having a go at a different style of music for a change. It was fun improvising a bit with a superb jazz-style pianist, Richard Chew.
