10K LONDON RUN
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
We're thrilled to be asked back to sing again at this year's London 10K Run to support the runners. We have a large performance area, so all Members can perform! This event is a great opportunity for you to become super familiar with all of the material! As we are singing a number of times throughout the day, it will be great chance to memorise the dynamics and lyrics.
Take to the streets of London in this 10K charity run and see some of the capital’s best known landmarks up close. The Bupa London 10,000 starts and finishes in The Mall, with Buckingham Palace as its backdrop. The 10km route winds its way past many of London’s most iconic sites including Admiralty Arch, Nelson’s Column, St Paul’s Cathedral, Mansion House, Bank of England, Leadenhall Market, The Monument, Millennium Bridge, Tate Gallery, Cleopatra’s Needle, London Eye, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
NO DRESS REHEARSAL FOR THIS PERFORMANCE. All Members can perform but if you are a Newbie please ensure that you practise with the harmony tracks outside of Rehearsals to become familiar with this material. Newbies remember, this is a relaxed performance outside, so this will be a great opportunity for you to become familiar with the material, in prep for our upcoming Showcase performance in July! For most of our performances, we have a Dress Rehearsal which is partly used to recap on songs from previous Terms for you, but as this is over the Bank Holiday Weekend, we are unable to have a Dress Rehearsal.
ATTIRE: As usual, we wear our Choir t-shirt and all black. If wearing a skirt pleasure enure to wear black tights, if wearing shoes that expose part of your foot please ensure that you wear black socks = no exposed skin in those places. As there's a lot of us, please don't bring much with you as there won't be much space to keep our belongings.
DATE: Monday 28th May 2018 (Bank Holiday)
TIME: Meet at 9:45am SHARP for a vocal warm up. Performing sets between 10am - 1pm (with lots of breaks!)
