So, I haven’t posted anything on the blog in a while, and I’ve been feeling good lately on account of a number of things, one being the fact that I’m singing the Baritone solo part of Carl Orff’s Tempus est iocundum from Carmina Burana at the 20th (and final) annual Celebration concert at the Sydney Town hall on the 21st of October. I’m very excited about this because I’m only an amateur singer who sings in Acapella Nova, a community choir based in Hamilton with my aunt, mum, and a bunch of other awesome people, and I’ve only been singing for around about 2 years, so singing a solo in a choir of about 200 people (accompanied by a massive primary choir) in front of an audience of about 1000 people is, I think, is something of an accomplishment. So if you want to come and see some awesome (truly awesome, not like “this muffin tastes awesome”) singing, not just mine, accompanied by a terrific orchestra and an organ that spans the entire back wall, head on down to the Sydney Town Hall on the 21st of October. Tickets are $35, $25 for Concession, and $100 for a family ticket (4). We’ll be singing Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Carmina Burana, and West Side Story.
Here’s an example of ‘Tempus est iocundum’
