Re: multiple performances
- You know... we did actually do more than one gig in the past. It
used to be that the Choir performance was after Great Court in the
Barn on the last Saturday of war, that was "back in the day" and the
time was "estimated to be after Court"
Then it started to be that the individual Kingdoms started to have
these huge humongoload Courts and the idea of the "Great Court" went
out the window.
Then we got the PA tent, so our performance became "scheduled"
specific to time and date.
I remember a time when we took the choir and did a few "promo
gigs" in the Food Court to advertise the concert.
The last time I did the CHoir (before this one) we had a special
performance in MidRealm Royal for Her Majesty and guests.
Before each Pennsic, I write to the Majord'ormo's for each Kingdom
(East, Middle, Atlantia, Antir, AEthelmearc, Loahac) and offer our
services for Queen's Tea or another in camp or Court performance.
I say those Kingdom's because those are the only who I write too.
Other than the performance for Her Majesty in the Middle a few years
ago, it's always been "turned down".
with folks schedules, it's really hard to have multiple
performances, but I'm all for it.. impromptu in the food court.
with next year's program.. it might be more likely that there will
be a few extra performances..... but we'll see how the plans work
As for the children's choir...
just by in clasee teaching and handing out some words that day
no instruments other than rhythm and recorders
45 min sessions and once a day in the morning.
it will NOT conflict with the battles at all, no way no how.
It will run as an open class, any child can come in at any time and
it will run in the PA tent or another A&S tent. If the child is 13
or older, the parent need not attend, but if the child is under 13, a
parent must be present for class.
The choir teacher will have to be approved by all the stuff that
all youth people go through... and we're working on those details now.
More stuff to follow.

L'homme, l'homme, l'homme armé,
L'homme armé doibt on doubter, doibt on doubter.
On a fait partout crier,
Que chascun se viengne armer
D'un haubregon de fer.
The man, the man, the armed man,
The armed man
The armed man should be feared, should be feared.
Everywhere it has been proclaimed
That each man shall arm himself
With a coat of iron mail.
