E = MC2 (Albert Einstein, 1879 – 1955)
I never understood the theory and probably never will, but I made an interesting discovery myself this morning.
‘The longest time in the world is the two minutes it takes to brush your teeth with an electric toothbrush when you’re in a hurry!’
Our choir year ends on the 19th of July and what a year it’s been. We started last September with a socially distanced return to indoor rehearsals – running two sessions of 45 minutes each – with mandatory mask wearing, and we’re ending it with two community singing events, a picnic, a garden party, and a come and sing event, open to all.
Along the way, we had our first Christmas concert since 2019 and a second performance of ‘Were I not to sing?’, originally planned for March 2020.
We’re now enjoying full rehearsals and our numbers are growing, with new members joining all the time. If you’d like a taste of what we’re about, please come along on Thursday 14th July for ‘A Summer Night’s Singing’ (see full details opposite).
After term ends, a party of 30 of us will be visiting Cumbria for a weekend tour, ‘Singing and Sociability’. There’ll be a full report, with photos, in next month’s magazine.
And then, we have one of the shortest times. Before we know it, we’ll be back for 2022-23. We start again on Tuesday 6th September, same time, same place, 9.45 – 11.35am at the Church of the Resurrection, and soon it’ll be Christmas!
