Re: [KWChoir] Pennsic 38 plans
- My two cents: Why not sing at sunset to launch Midnight Madness? A goodly number of people congregate in the food court and near the barn around supper time. Pennsic sunsets can be spiffy and think what a backdrop for choir publicity shots. That mitigates the visibility problem and doesn't cut into shopping/partying time.OK, I confess I get sleepy when the sun goes down, but I have never been a night owl.This is a purely selfish suggestion although I do sing better earlier in the day.Svea

Date: Monday, September 8, 2008, 10:25 AMGreetings KWC Pennsic Choir members!The other popular suggestion was Midnight Madness. While this has the drawback of potentially having to read music in the dark, I think it is the most beneficial to the choir. It happens the day before our concert, so we will be pretty well rehearsed by then. It gives us an opportunity to "prime the pump" by exposing shoppers to a taste of our music and, hopefully, luring some of them to our Thursday concert. We can also choose a time and place convenient to most of the choir members, without having to get approval from anyone else. To mitigate the "singing in the dark" problem, I suggest choir members look into acquiring battery-powered electric candlesticks. I've used these in my tent and my kids' tent for years, since they provide light without risk of fire. You can usually pick them up cheap right after Christmas at craft stores or JoAnn Fabrics. :-)So, how many people would be willing and available to sing a piece or two at Midnight Madness?
