Sketching a choir

Take a dried up, broad nib, calligraphy felt pen. Start drawing, watch as the view changes because the line up of images moves when you have the songsheet with the words displayed. Try and sing and draw at the same time! It’s hard to look down at your sketchbook, up at the words, and across to your fellow choir members. I challenged them to try and recognise themselves from these crude sketches.

Stoke Sings 2021, workshops.

Today is Stoke Sings Festival 2021. Over a hundred singers have got together virtually on Zoom and are singing together (muted sadly, it’s not possible to sync the sound). #ssf21 is the hashtag and I’ve posted a couple of drawings here of the workshop leaders as they taught us…

Zoom song…

I’ve got an old song in my head and I can think of words to modernise it..apologies to the original writers…

“we’re all going on a zoom tomorrow, zoom tomorrow, zoom tomorrow, we’re all going on a zoom tomorrow, you can come along too…

We’re going on a Zoom, zoom, zoom,

We’re meeting on a Zoom, zoom zoom,

You can come too, too too. We’re meeting on a zoom…..

We’re all getting loo paper tomorrow, loo paper tomorrow, loo paper tomorrow.

We’re all getting loo paper tomorrow.

You can come shopping too.

Were going to the shop shop shop, yes we’re going to the shop shop shop..

You can come too too too. We’re going to the shop..

We’re all getting the flu tomorrow, flu tomorrow, flu tomorrow, we’re all getting the flu tomorrow,

You can get it too,

We’re getting the flu, flu flu, you can get it too too too, we’re getting the flu flu flu,

You can catch it too, too too.

We’re not getting Covid tomorrow, covid tomorrow, covid tomorrow, we’re not getting covid tomorrow, because we’ve had the jab!

How about you, you you?

You can have a jab too too too..

How about you you you?

Stay safe too too too!

Zoom meetings

This is a bit of an orphaned post. I tried to edit a draft post but I’m still not completely up to speed with WordPress blocks so I added a photo and categories and tags but couldn’t work out where to add text… Its taken at least ten minutes to get here… The zoom photo has been filtered to hide the identities of the participants, I’m also not saying what it was about. I just liked the colours and patterns on this screen grab.
