Pippins Performance this last weekend
- Greetings All,
The Pippins sang this weekend as part of the Oak Brook
Chriskindlmarket (And no, we do not know why we were there on Nov
11th ) and that it was the best audience I have ever had as a
We had a good 30-40 people who actually sat down in the cold and
listened to our whole rep which was a 30 min set. And a number of
people who stopped their shopping to listen to a couple of songs as
We performed a completely period rep some Holiday music and only a
couple in English but all of our songs would be unfamiliar to a
modern ear. And our audience was undeniably modern these people
were stepping outside of Macy's or Pottery Barn to listen to us.
It was great to have such a positive response, and really satisfying
as a performer to know we were appreciated. Sure it could have in
part that we were the funny looking people dressed up in garb making
a spectacle. But I'd rather like to think that we just helped them
have a better day.
It is nice to know that if you prepare and put on a performance with
energy that you can find an audience anywhere.
Thanks to the people from the local area who made it out, and hope to
see more of you in the future!
Your Servant to Command,
