it’s a Sunday and I’m finally getting a chance to slow down and take a breather after the hectic week— I’m completely done with my practical test (for driving), my first bout of concerts/performances is finally over and I’m very thankful for the break I can get before resuming with choir performances and chorus work.
yesterday marked the end of the “Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers” performance with the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra. the experience of performing a film soundtrack was really one of the most interesting ones I’ve had so far— completely different from performing full-length choir concerts or performing symphonies & works with orchestras. I thought that the many evenings spent traveling to Fusionopolis would be for naught, and I’m glad to say otherwise. I even made a new friend (not in the pictures) or two from the festival chorus and recognised quite a few names of the orchestra members (especially a certain percussionist hmmm) 🙂
I wish I could describe more of the experience but it’s really hard especially since I’m not a fan of the trilogy. I’ll just leave it at that. but know that I really had quite a blast performing for this 😛
and only five days before the LOTR performance, I was performing with ACJC Alumni Choir at An Evening with Friends 2014:
my third AEWF and hopefully not my last. took me this long to feel the love and I don’t plan on stopping it any time soon 🙂 :
here’s to the end of a fulfilling week, and to finally getting some quality rest time. I’ll update again soon.
