A few comments from the choir and the audience (both concerts):
Just to say a big thank you to Paul and you all - I really enjoyed the Global Folk project, very
challenging but always great fun, and I thought the concert was absolutely great!
I have really enjoyed the Sing World workshops and the concert on Wednesday. Not only do I
meet up with those from previous workshops, I have had the pleasure of meeting new partici-
pants. I woke up Thursday with the tunes from the concert running around my head, quite a
buzz. Thank you for your hard work in giving us, the Choir, the opportunity to sing together.
…and a note from Paul…
I hope you had some fun along the way and on the night (I certainly did) and you looked as if
you were enjoying yourselves - remember, the band and I always get the best seat in the house
and it really sounded good to us. They’re all really keen to move the project along. Quite a
vote of confidence in yourselves.
Good luck with all the choral endeavours in the coming months and beyond - you have an
extraordinary committee who constantly amaze me with their tenacity and determination to
grow the DTC both in numbers on the books and in terms of breadth of activity and range of
styles - so thank you and congratulations to all those hard-working committee members.
