Our notorious lives


This term, our publicity officer Josie has been asking the choir to share something of their lives in the build up to our biggest ever concert at Birmingham Town Hall.

Using the hashtag #mynotoriouslife members of the choir have been showing the reality of fitting in rehearsing for such a momentous occasion with the demands of everyday life.

Josie was first to go with this photo of her in her car having a little sing before she starts work:

As Chair, I had to join in with my eco-friendly take of singing a bit of Rutter while cycling through a nature reserve:

Fellow tenor Ian Sutton did a puntastic, “The lengths I go to for notorious”: 

Altos Jo and Frida shared a lovely shot on a walk through Moseley Bog with Frida’s children:

Soprano Helena showed us that even on holiday in beautiful Prague, she was still getting in some practice:

Her fellow soprano Ruth showed a slightly less glamorous, but just as dedicated side, as she rehearsed while grating cheese:

Wherever our choir members are, they’re all excited about 25th November at Birmingham Town Hall where we’ll have a choir of 75 people assembled to sing Faure’s Requiem and Rutter’s Magnificat. It will be a night to remember as all these hours of practice bear fruit in glorious music!
