Rehearsals are special things to attend, especially if you’re just observing things. They are in effect you’re own private concert.
Attending a chorus rehearsal with a microphone also gives you the permission to wander around and experience a glorious shifting sound-scape, one normally only the conductor or rehearsal pianist hears.
The London Gay Men’s Chorus next set of concerts are at Cadogan Hall in London on 24 and 25 May 2013. The theme – heroes – celebrates those individuals who are regarded by its members as their own individual heroes. It’s a touching idea and seemingly apt for a warm and friendly chorus which has recently celebrated 21 years in existence.
I attended one of the final rehearsals for the #LGMCHeroes concert and spoke to chairman John Carrion.
