Practice, practice, practice.

It’s been a bit dreich here on Coll, but still very peaceful and we’ve been busy rehearsing for our three public concerts.

It’s been a real luxury to focus so closely on our repertoire this week. After an hour of coaching in the venue with Tim we are feeling very excited to open tonight’s concert, as well as listening to the other groups performances.

We also had a brief chat all together about professional development – which has given us a lot of food for thought and motivation for how to develop as a group.

Day 3 and 4 on Coll

Monday was a hectic yet rewarding day with 4 coaching sessions with Pippa, Lis and Tim. All 3 were approached differently yet equally exciting which made for a productive day. We finished by performing to each other in an informal concert and really enjoyed getting to listen to the other groups!

After a fun filled evening with everyone, we woke up on Tuesday morning ready to go again. We had another 2 fantastic coaching sessions from Charles and Lis, but what really got us through the day was the field trip to the beach. It was so beautiful and nice to get some down time all together. Chris unfortunately ventured too far and suffered the consequences- sandy, soaked jeans. We then returned back to rehearse alone, consolidating all the useful advice from the tutors and developing our own ideas.
