As part of the ACE Creative People and Place, Made in Corby taster events Barb Jungr, Head of Snakes, Gareth Fuller and the Deep Roots Tall Trees Choir went on a mini tour of community venues in Corby. It was a wonderful week of singing and bonding, sharing music together so by the Saturday we were feeling much more tight and together. However there is still much work to do, Choir Master Gareth Fuller will be stripping our parts in all the songs right back and rebuilding our sound, working on blend, breathing and phrasing. In the coming months there are more exciting plans afoot for the project. Some of the choir have started working with Barb to develop a new song for the new sequence, which is proving to be a fabulous new journey into an unknown land for me! The further we go on the more I realise how little I know, how much there is to learn and what a joy singing is proving to be.
