I can’t believe I’m writing this, but Singsational Nottingham! is over and it raised the best part of £600 for Water Aid.
The audience thoroughly enjoyed themselves and sung with as much enthusiasm as anyone could hope for. “Mabel takes a shower”,the “playlet” that joins the songs together worked really well and the shower cubicle didn’t fall over!
The band played magnificently and the two leads, Mabel and Frank did a brilliant job at telling the story and leading the songs. In addition we had two great guest choirs, “In Seventh Heaven” (a Ladies Barbershop group) and the Wollaton Male Chorus, who sang magnificently and added a real air of quality to the evening.
During the interval six choirs had “stalls” and we built a “musical map” of Nottingham,which showed that there were members of at least a dozen choirs at the event – no wonder the singing was so good. And they would still have been chatting now if we had not dragged them in for the second half.
I’ve got so many people to thank I don’t know where to start. But safe to say, Singsational Nottingham! has really demonstrated what can happen when a community of people work together to get something to happen. Thanks to everyone who helped and supported.
I’ll be posting pictures and video in the next few days. In the meantime, if you want to do your bit for Water Aid, visit my Just Giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/singsational-nottingham
Now I’m off to bed (I wonder how long it will be before I get the tunes out of my head and manage to get to sleep?)
Thank you and Good Night!
