Apologies to those people who have applied recently and not yet received an acknowledgement in return. I (Simon) am away singing this week and am unable to access the application email account and process your applications due to a very weak and intermittent wi-fi signal. I will be back home this weekend (25/26 Aug) and will catch up with all the stuff then. Once again, sorry for the delay.
We now have a full complement of soloists. Biogs and mugshots to follow.
Ives: Ed Goble
Rutter: Emily Wenman
Verdi: Josie Goddard, Beth Moxon, Andrew Henley, Ed Danon
It is great to have them on board; again, in the case of Beth.
A schedule for the day has now been added to the website.
Things are progressing nicely, we have had just over a hundred applications so far. We have room for another hundred participants, so spread the word. We are especially looking for more basses at the moment. Currently tenors outnumber basses by three to one!
On the soloist front, Beth Moxon is returning this year to sing the Verdi. We have Ed Goble singing the tenor solo in the Ives, having sung it in the premiere of the piece I believe.
Donations on the JustGiving site are ticking over nicely but it would great to see more. If you are taking part, nudge friends and family to see if you can entice them to support you in this event
