Messiah – part the Sing Along Concert

After a right cracking evening concert singing along with a Baroque style orchestra what else would the erstwhile chorister be doing but singing another concert – this time with audience members who are singing along to the choruses. Fabulous!

Here are a couple of the tweets for the sing along.

Well it wasn’t as large a crowd as last night but quite a few willing participants and the conducting chore was taken by both Duff and Eric. As can be seen from this tweet.

We started in the usual way and the one funny thing happened Duff qued the audience and choir to stand just before one of the tenor solo’s. he was a little embarrassed. That being said it was pretty much the same as last night, just a little less energy without such a big house.

Danika Loren added some ornamentation to a couple of her pieces and again watch for her I think she will be going far.   In fact I think all the soloists added a little ornamentation to their parts from last night and they sang along for most of it as well – great job…
