- May 19, 2008Lady Elizabeth,
In response to your heartfelt letter below, I just wanted to say that I have run into many of the same obstacles you mentioned in my recent attempts to bring choral music back into my local group. In fact, one of the reasons I joined the SCA in the first place was to participate in the choir and sing period pieces.
Imagine my dismay, then, when I was told that my Barony's choir hadn't existed for ten years! I was very disappointed to hear this, and set right to work at breathing life back into the defunct choir. I now direct (and sing with) a small but dedicated group of gentles. However, life often gets in the way of regular rehearsal times and we have found it difficult to find appropriate performance venues. Especially now that winter is over, most (if not all) of the upcoming events we have will be outside... not the ideal setting for choral music at all.
I hope that in the future, still more efforts can be made to facilitate choral performances in the SCA.
