Two firsts in one week!
As we entered our 15th week of lockdown we were delighted to be inspired,humbled and encouraged this week when we welcomed composer Howard Goodall to our Tuesday rehearsal. In May we held intensive rehearsals and released the first male voice choir virtual recording of his piece ‘Loving Kindness;, written specially for Aled Jones. It was a joy to speak to him and hear how he went about composition. Thank you Howard, from a very inspired choir!
….and if that wasn’t enough we had our very own name check from Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney on Wednesday when he asked the Prime Minister when he could attend a HMVC concert again. We like many other choirs have been forced to rehearse and connect in isolation, so it was refreshing to hear someone stand up for us, as well as the many other arts organisations that are struggling. Thank you Jason, for your support.
