November 2018 – Singing

For our November meeting we had a good old singalong with Yvonne Packer and local community choir Cantamus. For this we thank our WI member and choir member Jacque for bringing us together: thank you Jacque!

After a warm-up by way of a ‘mature’ version of My Favourite Things, we launched into the west African songs Jamawaile and Tue Tue. The Yvonne mixed things up a bit with two sets of songs which sound lovely together, but even better sung together. Who knew that Pack Up Your Troubles, It’s A Long Way to Tipperary and Keep The Home Fires Burning work perfectly together? I’m Gonna Sing Sing Sing, Oh When The Saints and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot also go together beautifully as well!

Even our members who started out a little tentative had a fun time! Thank you to Yvonne and Cantamus for a creative and relaxing meeting.
