What a great day at Gloucester Beer, Cider & Gin festival. Despite it being September the sun shone, the beer was flowing and the atmosphere was buzzing. The singing cheered the appreciative audience and the smiles and applause indicated a thrilling afternoon. It was wonderful to support the Rotary Club and the wonderful charities they were raising money for.

There’s now just 31 days to go until our first full stage performance in competition in the Royal Hall
in Douglas for the Isle of Man Festival of Choirs, and Monday night we put lots more attention to the finest
detail of two of our show-stopping songs – Sound of Silence and The Prayer. We’re now all getting
pretty confident about the tunes and the words (even the ones in Italian); the timing is just about
right, and even the dynamics are starting to get there. The excitement is building!
