A bit of a hard slog last night maybe but worth it I hope. That Lonesome Road was sounding really good by the end of it. Next time we will be singing Viva La Compagnie and That Lonesome Road once more and, time permitting, looking at Vive la Musica, Time After Time, Rongo Mau, Follow the Heron, Wake Up and Isn’t She Lovely. Finally, as I said last week, there are quite a lot of interesting, informative and/or entertaining events coming up over the next few weeks that are, I am sure, well worthy of (y)our support.
VIVE LA COMPAGNIE
Jane (soprano) has sent this link to a very slick version of the song. Hope you enjoy singing along … maybe even in Korean! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hG4edOJu7ao
