Tonight I went out for dinner with all the girls from choir as it is the 10 year anniversary of the formation of the choir, Bel Canto. We had a lovely meal in a private dining room at a restaurant overlooking the harbour and this photo is the scene as the light started to go.
This particular choir has been going for 10 years, but the Guernsey Girls Choir preceded it and that was where we all started. From the ages of about 12 – 18 I sang with Guernsey Girls, we did concerts, toured a bit and generally had fun. What a realised when I went back to Bel Canto at the end of last year was that Christine our conductor hasn’t changed much at all and she still tells me off for all the same things she was telling me off for when I was 14 years old… ie. talking, backchat etc etc.
It was good to spend time with everyone. Time out together matters. We like singing, but we also like chatting and gossiping. It’s just one of the things that makes Bel Canto super special!
