Singing in a Bodega – Sept 2018

We were very fortunate to be asked to join RunBySingers for their trip to El Puerto De Santa Maria which lies in Sherry country between Cadiz and Jerez.  We spent an enjoyable week singing a wonderful, varied repertoire of European music under the direction of Jeremy Jackman leading to a well-received concert in San Francisco Church, attended by a large audience. It is fair to say that reasonable quantities of tapas and sherry were consumed along the way…

On the Friday evening we also had the opportunity to sing as DCHQ to entertain the RBS choir, the local mayor and the president of Osborne Group – the event was held in the Osborne Bodega and we sang between courses of an excellent meal.  We received some lovely comments (we always enjoy singing to an audience of choral singers who appreciate the challenges of singing in a quartet!) and one of the RBS choir members posted this rather lovely comment on her blog (many thanks, Katherine!):

“We were given a masterclass in tuning and performance – and our entertainment needs were well looked after – by RBS regular Amanda and her close harmony group, DCHQ (Devon Close Harmony Quartet). It was lovely stuff, the artistes truly connecting with their audience and enunciating every word of their original arrangements”

We very much hope that RBS will invite us back to sing with them again in the future 🙂
