After our long rehearsal at the Bus Stop Theatre yesterday afternoon and evening, and a sleepless night with visions of climate change in my head, I am relieved to be working from bed today! One of the few perks of being a musician I think.... Yesterday we took all we knew and some we didn't and we made a show. Karen composed a very detailed lead sheet, (thanks again Karen) that we took large chunks from, and from there constructed our collective creation. We surprised ourselves with some really dark sections and even a comedic piece. I think the night will be a blast, we'll be flying by the seats of our pants, and using all our skills and experience to make something for all of you to enjoy. Just the way a suddenlyLISTEN show should be! The experience of working with all these marvellous artists has been fantastic. We've all been stretched a bit and had learned about new ways of interpreting and structuring a "score".
