(photo taken yesterday evening)
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.

Oh wow, for some reason, I thought your concert list from your previous post was concerts you were going to WATCH. With the exception of the ACJC one. Cool, what an honour to be able to perform alongside such a prestigious orchestra. And a GREAT movie soundtrack. Awesome.
HAHAHAH after reading my previous post I think I can see how you’ve managed to misconstrue my words…
indeed, it was an honour performing alongside the MFO— even without being a fan of the series I could really feel the majesty in the entire soundtrack. simply breathtaking. 🙂
