My singing of songs took on a whole new plane last year when I joined the Santa’s Singers. Unfortunately ( 🙂 ) I spent the whole of December 2012 in Peru and so couldn’t join the singers at any of their yearly carolling events. But this year, after two hard months of weekly rehearsals, I made my Santa’s Singers’ debut at the Belgrano Athletic Club.
Unfortunately, since I’m a tall bass and so stand at the end of the line, I spent most of the gig behind a lampshade, but you can enjoy my left ear at times. And if you know my voice you might be able to distinguish my dulcet tones at certain more confident moments, although I was rather quiet tonight as it’s been a long time since my singing voice has been on stage, even among such supportive companions.
The song list for the evening went as follows:
. come share this night of joy. away in a manger. el nacimiento. the joy of christmas. star of the east
Many thanks to Mike and his wife for organising the filming of the singing. And congratulations to my companeros for being such a great choir and welcoming me with open arms. And a special mention to our choir master, Ian, for leading us to heights undreamed of.
