A fantastic weekend of mission and fellowship with Roger Jones, his team and his latest musical Barnabas.
It all started Saturday morning when over sixty people aged from eight to eighty arrived to sing in the choir. Annie Routley soon had them sorted out and training began. Learning the musical was a huge amount of fun but with twelve pieces in four part harmony it was no mean task. By lunchtime we were over half way through, finishing the last few songs afterwards and we still had time for a full run through before heading home.
Sunday afternoon arrived and so did the choir for a full dress rehearsal with the composer Roger Jones and his team of soloists. The choir were arranged on stage in their final positions with the sopranos up in the choir loft and altos, tenors and bass on the platform. The sound the choir made in full voice was amazing and the rehearsal went off without a hitch. Finally by five we were just about ready for the evening performance.
