TO SING ONCE MORE – A T16 REUNION





“Pining for a round of Ehre Sei Gott... Dreaming of that handsome Gypsy Rover...
Wishing you were far away on the Wings of a Dove?”
 


With such seduction only dire circumstances could have prevented any self-respecting ‘T16er’ from accepting Eric’s captivating and kind invitation to reunite and relive fond memories of our European Tour.
And so it was that on a balmy evening on Friday, February 3rd, those who were able to, gathered at 66 East Street to enjoy Eric’s hospitality in the surrounds of his delightful garden where 20 something Tourers shared a table full of enticing culinary contributions, Eric’s colourful fruity concoction, for many, fortified by the odd drop of wine and the memories made during that amazing magical musical 2016 tour.
However, a themed evening such as this devoid of "loosening up the vocal chords" would have been an evening unfinished and as the sun melted into the horizon and Eric’s blinking pathways and pebbles became an illumination to rival the stars; with Alexis poised at her music stand also singing in support of the depleted sop 1s and Margaret’s always faultless however this night futile attempts in the open air to make herself heard at the piano ,  we sang our songs with gusto and longing.   That’s the beauty of singing in this Choir...the constant striving for something more even after the last journey has ended.
