Was it worth it?
A year’s fund-raising, a year’s organisation, two months’ intensive rehearsal, lots of mutual support from the whole choir: was it worth it – YES!!!! It was a huge achievement for us to learn the piece and to hold our heads up (literally!) with the other choirs. The sounds and images of being in Carnegie Hall will stay with us for ever. I can’t wait to perform the piece in Nelson with the whole choir, to share the emotion and magic of the piece with our home singers and audience.
