Drive 25th - 29th

Back on Drive after a couple of weeks off poorly. Spoke to David and Kerry from the Shenfield Operatic Society at the start of the week about their production "Fiddler on the Roof". As they told me, it's been a brilliant production at the Queen's theatre, Hornchurch, with professional musicians and other production belying the so-called "amateur" status of the group. Also had some live singing from them as well which sounded brilliant - to find out more about what they're up to visit www.shenfieldoperaticsociety.co.uk

Also spoke to Robin Derbyshire from Brentwood Choral Society about their Saturday workshop to sing two grand Haydn pieces (the Creation and Mass) on Saturday for their concerts later in the year. They're after singers who can read music but want to get involved with the society - visit www.brentwoodchoralsociety.org.uk for details on what the society are up to.

The A list at Phoenix (the main records we play) is sounding very good at the moment as well - and we'll have some more local bits and guests for you - so see you next week, 3 - 7.
