A funny blog post about learning songs for choir, from Midlife Dramas in PyjamasI’m in a choir. We perform in a concert hall. We’re accompanied by an orchestra. It’s all very prestigious. Therefore we have to sing everything by heart.

We’re given a CD of the songs, which I instantly transfer onto my iPod. I then plug myself into this wherever I go – literally. Today I wore it around the supermarket.

Got very odd looks as I sang You’ll Never Walk Alone down the tampon aisle. Might have traumatised a passing toddler for life.

Got even odder looks in the fruit & veg aisle. It would appear not everyone appreciates a rousing rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus whilst weighing out their plums…
