WMVC were hugely impressive as expected, and L2S should be very proud – it takes real courage to perform to an audience (especially one including 2 established choirs!)...

Live on Radio Solent – eight singers with insomnia!

We took a group of eight singers (otherwise known as an Octet or a VLQ) to BBC Radio Solent to Talk to Julian Clegg about the work of Bournemouth Male Voice Choir and in particular the Learn2Sing Course that begins on 14th January 2014 – http://www.bournemouthmalechoir.co.uk/learn2sing/ We met at 7am – so much warming up was needed, some felt that their efforts deserved a hearty breakfast afterwards and were last seen demolishing bacon and eggs.  Others went off to work……. 🙁 Have a listen to the interview and come along and join...
