Last Orders before the Summer Mash Up …

Next week is the last of our normal timetable before we switch over to Summer Mondays. It’s always interesting to see who makes it along at this time of the year. So if you’re around, come and join us.
The Music Makers sessions for next week will be as follows:

  • Monday 17th July 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Wednesday 19th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in Studio 2 at The Edge
  • Thursday 20th 9.30 to 10.30, and 10.45 to 11.45, both in the Youth Centre at St Clement’s

After this week we head into our series of Summer Monday Sessions. The dates and times for this year are as follows:

  • Monday 24th July, Monday 31st July, Monday 7th August and Monday 14th August.
  • Two sessions per day – 9.30 to 10.30 and 10.45 to 11.45

All sessions to take place in The Main Theatre at The Edge. (Buggy park downstairs – probably Studio 2).
These sessions have a different vibe to our term time offering, with the welcome return of some old hands alongside their younger siblings.

Other matters:

Deep controversy and discord on Thursday Morning!! (Not really – but it sounds good!)
I Can Sing a Rainbow – order of colours??? Different polarised opinions – (a bit like marmite or Brexit).
First part easy – not a problem – “red and yellow and pink and green” – the next part is the one causing problems – “Orange and Purple and Blue” or “Purple and Orange and Blue”???
I applied to the European Court of Music Rights for a ruling in this matter – (a legal process involving listening to as many versions as I could find on Youtube) – and the results are in:
It’s a landslide decision – by 83% – including CBBC – in favour of – Purple and Orange and Blue!
Now we’re not into “the people have spoken” and all that guff – if anyone wants to rebel that’s absolutely fine – we’ll just have a brief “Charles Ives” moment whenever we sing this song. (I’ll explain that reference to anyone who’s interested when I see you).
So, I hope to see you along next week or at some point over the summer.
